Sri Agni is the adhidevata of the Sun and is the most revered deity of the agnihotri’s and brahmins of the vedic period. He has two wives named ‘Svaha’ and ‘Svadha’ who carry the offerings made by the devotees into the holoy fire (Agni devata) to the Gods and manes respectively. The three lokas are worshipped with the bija mantras ” OM bhu, Bhuva, Svah” respectively. Thus the offerings to the gods must end with the word Svaha whereas those to the manes ends with the word Svadha.

Bhu refers to this terrestrial plane or the earth (Agni is the Lord of the Bhu loka); Bhuva refers to the solar system (Surya is the Lord of the Bhuva loka) and Svah refers to the universe beyond (Indra is the Lord of the heavens). Thus, in this earthly plane it is necessary to worship agni for a good life and energy.
