José Serrano | Allergies

José Serrano
Churriana, Málaga,
Spain, Europe

I have been very sensitive to contamination in general terms. When I was a child, I sneezed a lot. It was something uncontrollable. At that time, there were no paper towels and I used to spend 7, 8 up to 10 handkerchiefs a day and then washed them for reuse on another day. I sneezed thousands and thousands of times.

Initially I was not so regular, but after joining the Sunday Group Chanting & Agnihotra Activity in Belgaum, I started developing more interest. The lockdowns due to the pandemic, gave me a God-gifted opportunity to practice Agnihotra very regularly. Since then, I have been experiencing many visible benefits in my life & I am happy to share them with all. Continue reading “Rakhi Uday Sawant | Many visible benefits in my life”
