Hinduism And Hindu Theology - What Is Agnihotra ?

Agnihotra means "fire sacrifice" in Sanskrit. 


  • Offerings are offered to the holy fire, which is said to represent the deity Agni manifested in corporeal form. 
  • The word may also apply to the holy fire itself, as well as its upkeep and care. 
  • The Vedas, the oldest and most authoritative Hindu holy scriptures, trace the origins of sacrificial fire worship. 


This kind of devotion is still practiced in contemporary times, but it is considerably less prominent.
