Karali, dhumili, sweta, lohit, needlohita, subarna, padmaraga there are seven tongues of agni. The wood is Agni’s ears and fume is nose, less lighted area is eyes and ashes are Agni’s head.

Agni is part and process of human civilization. It is not only a part but important component of living. Without Agni our life would not has been like this. All our activities like cooking food and numberless other activities of our day to day living livli-hood are done by fire. Solar energy gives us vegetation. Forming of cloud and raining all is performed by solar energy. We learn great lesson from agni. Agni always rises up like that our aim also should be high up. Whatever we put in agni become small particles and spreads. We learn the lesson of selfless service from agni. It spreads as much as it can and benefits the living being. This is also a lesson for us. We should also spread ourselves and do welfare of others.

Sun light has the power to kill germs. That is why we open our windows to let Sunrays come in. We wash our clothes and dry it under Sun. Put pillows and mattreses in the Sun. Put woolens and expirers cloths under the Sun. Even spices, wheat, lentils are put under Sun. Same energy we get from yagna. Naturopathists prescribe to lie down under the morning Sun rays. Havan is done in each house in all the auspicious occasion. We also light kapur, guggal, chandan in daily worship.
