Take your Agnihotra timings with you wherever you go. iAgnihotra calculates the exact time of sunrise and sunset using your built in GPS, Internet connection or an offline worldwide city listing. If you are outdoors use it in GPS mode for perfect astronomical sunrise and sunset timings. If you are online it will detect your location from your Internet connection or if you want to check the time for a friend just type the name of their location. It also has a training mode to teach you the Agnihotra mantras as well as Mahamrtyunjaya mantra which is profoundly healing to perform at any time.
Agnihotra is a profoundly healing daily practice that has been performed for thousands of years in India to purify the atmosphere. It is done at the exact transition from day to night or night to day, astronomically this is when the midpoint of the sun has reached the horizon. The Rishis or sages of India observed that at this exact time an immense amount of natural energy is present in the atmosphere and hence by performing Agnihotra at this time, the effects are immensely healing for those performing and all around.
What's New in Version 1.3.1
We've fixed a compatibility issue with iOS 6 that was effecting the map search module for some users.
Good for everything, BUT….
I have been using this app for performing Agnihotra. I like all of the features of it except there is one major problem with it. It does not switch to the current day automatically. You have to know what the date is and make sure you switch to that day first before performing Agnihotra, otherwise you will be on the wrong date and the times will be different. There is not even a button that will take you to the correct day. So if you don't know the date you will have to leave the app, look at your calendar and then go back to the app and select the correct date. This should all be automatic. Otherwise this would be a solid 4 to 4.5 stars. Please fix this issue.
