Nithya Agnihotris from all over India compiled by Sriram

As you all are aware, Sri Sriram has been doing a Himalayan task of collecting the details of each and every agnihotris in India and meet them in-person and pay respect to them by offering a simple veshti, saree and some dakshinai for each. This is not a small activity to travel around the country and do this. It is all Sri Kailasanathar’s and Periyava’s anugrahams that keeps motivating him to do this. In fact he took short interviews of these great people and shared in FB –  not all but with many. However, due to my bandwidth I could not post all – I post one or two in the past. Now, he has compiled a small file of ALL agnihotris and their photos. Take a minute to see them and offer your namaskaram virtually. Thanks to my local friend who shared this with me.

Looks like Tenali/Vijayawada area has most number – I could be wrong. When you go through this document, don’t just keep skipping pages quickly – take a minute to see through the photo of their living condition and their simplicity and the calmness in their faces, a sense of contentment. I have interacted with few agnihotris and I know to some extent how hard their life is – meaning, how much committed one should be to take that path. These people have dedicated their life to this and we are least qualified to even appreciate any of these. We are still busy with our loukeeka worries of when restaurants and malls would be reopened etc!

It is a perfect timing to see their photos amidst this deadly situation that prevails in the world now. We seek their blessings to save from this disaster.

The very first photo speaks for itself – it is our Kanchi Matam who has been taking care of honoring these agnihotris since Mahaperiyava days.

Hats off to you Sriram for your relentless service. Sitting on the couch and writing like me is easier than getting on the ground and actually doing things. You are setting a great example for others.

Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!

  10. Great work indeed & well deserved recognition !
    Would it be possible to share more about the life of Nitya Agnihothris in general like how does a typical day look like, what is expected of their role as Nitya Agnihothris ?


    • Priya garu

      Besides the three times Sandyavandanam and Panchayatana Pooja in the morning, they have to do agnihotram, a brief homa, at early morning and also in the evening each and every day. They take care to maintain the fire and have dedicated space for it in their homes. They also do special homam on Poornima and Amavasya! They don’t eat outside even at other Brahmin households. They eat food made by only their Dharma Patni. Some of them go on special yagas like Soma Yagam, Vajapeyam, Poundareekak etc.
      Jaya Jaya Sankara! Hara Hara Sankara!

  16. Excellent. Great work done by Mr. Sriram in identifying them and meeting them and posting it for the benefit of all of us. No amount of thanks is enough for him. Going through the list,find most of them are from Tenali, Viayawada. Tamil nadu is also not far behind. We offer our Namaskarams to them and pray for the welfare of our people and also for the whole world in this time of lockdown .

  17. Tremendous and laborious work done by Sri Sriram Garu. Hats off! Any amount of appreciation is less for your service.

    May Maha Periva keep you cool and plenty of health and wealth.

    Jaya Jaya Shankara….. Hara Hara Shankara…..

  18. they are the precious gems of continuing Hindu tradition and inspiration for next generation. Pray god atleast in my next birth I born into such pious family and devote my life fully to shastras.

  19. Excellent work Sriram. My Naskarams to you. You are a blessed soul to have met so many of them.

  20. would like to congratulate sri .Sriram for this Himalayan task
    .My Humble Namaskarams to all the Nitya agnihotris.

  21. Excellent work Sriram. You are a blessed soul to met so many of them. Thank You

  22. I surrendered my manaseeka namaskarams to both the agnihothris and their dharmapathnis. The life of a dharmapathni of a agnihothri is equally -if not more-contributing to the Dharmaraksha.I viewed them as Parvathi Parameshwara and Mahalakshmi samedha Mahavishnu. A good day for me. Thanks.

  23. Can not find the document pls reattach
