The yagnopathy laboratory has a havan kunda places in a glass chamber and a gas analysis wing for the collection and analysis of the fumes and vapours of yagna. The efficacy of the various herbal ingredients in the havishya and the quality of the samidhas are assessed in the phytochemistry lab which is equipped with units like the gas-liquid chromatograph. The purpose is to analyse the raw content in the beginning and what is left after these substances have been fumigated.
Blood samples are kept in the glass chamber when it is full of fumes and vapours during the daily yagna (havan) and the changes in the blood biochemistry and heamotological parameters are recorded for these samples. A large number of experiments are carried out on healthy and diseased persons, living on the campus for prescribed periods. The subjects include the sadhakas as well as the non sadhakas of all age groups, men and women from all walks of life disregard of their social or religious background. During such experiments the subjects are asked to sit in the glass chamber and inhale the fumes of Yagna for specific periods of time. A thorough analysis of their body and mind is made before and after performing this experiment.
The measurements (carried out by chromatographs, multi channel physiographs, etc) of the above experiments include:
Haematological parameters like Hb, TRBC, TWBC, platelets, RBC fragility, etc
Biochemical changes like thos ein the levels of blodd urea, sugar, cholestrol, cretinine, SGOT, SGOT, etc
Immunological changes like the antibody levels and innate immunity towards various pathogenic offending organisms.
The levels of hormones like cortisol, thyroxine, ACTH, androgens, etc are recorded in the endocrinology lab. The EEG, EMG and ECG recordings are carried out in the neuro-physiology labs. The psychometry lab assesses the aptitude, learning potential, memory, the intelligence quotient, emotional quotient and the overall personality makeup of the subjects. The cases are followed on regular intervals (e.g. after performing yagna regularly for a week, or a month, etc.)
The technical details and results of this experimental research will be published subsequently in the relevant scientific journals to give directions for therapeutic use of different herbal medicines by means of yagna and further research on herbal medicine and to establish progressive ground for other scientific applications of yagna.
The general implications of the results obtained so far is that performing yagna significantly enhances the vitality and resistance against adverse metero-biological changes and against the invasion of otherwise lethal viruses and bacteria. Mental peace, emotional stability and creative development of the mind are the general observations of the analysis on the psychological fronts.
