Ayush = meaning age or tenure of life. Ayush Homam is one such, performed on the completion of first year of birth Nakshatra. Primarily to pray for longevity and prosperity of life this Homam is performed. Once in a year this homa is recommended for healthy living and long life. If you are suffering from any ailment for long , then also Ayusah Homa is recommended.
The Ayur Devata is the chief deity of this powerful Homa. During Kritha Yug or Sathys Yug, Ayur Devata worship was seen prevalent. She becomes the chief deity of this powerful Homa. The power from this Homa empowers a person with good health and longevity that is important to carry out one’s duty on earth.
Ayush Homam is explained by the sage Bodhayana in the Bodhayana sutras. According to Bodhayana, if a child is constantly ill, this Homam could be performed on a monthly basis till the child attains good health. But in general practice, this is performed only at the first year of birth only i.e. day of the star in which the child is born. This Homam is performed on the day the child completes one year of age. In case one is unable to perform it on this day, it can be done on the consecutive month. It may be done even on a monthly basis. By performing the Ayush Homam the evil effects caused by day of the fortnight (Thithi), day of the week (Vara) & the constellation (nakshatra -star) are eradicated. It bestows longevity, prosperity and good health. It is experienced that even some of the common ailments, which cannot be diagnosed through mainstream medicines, are cured by the performance of this Homam.
The day gains immense power when it is ruled by the person’s Birth Star. Performing this Homa on that day brings Her blessings to the person. This powerful Homa brings a great relief for children who suffer from severe health ailments.
