Darvihoma (दर्विहोम) refers to a category of sacrifices, as mentioned in the Āpastamba-yajña-paribhāṣā-sūtras.—“There is no fuel (in the Darvi-homa), except at the Agnihotra. One pours out (juhoti) the Darvi-homas, sitting west of the Āhavanīya fire, and bending the right knee, or not bending it. If it is distinctly stated, it is done in a different way. One pours out (juhoti) all āhutis, west of the Āhavanīya fire, passing (the altar) southward, and then turning to the north. The Āśruta and Pratyāśruta, the Yājyā and Anuvākyā, the Upastaraṇa and Abhighāraṇa, with the slicings, the Caturgṛhīta also, and the Vaṣaṭkāra constitute the Darvi-homas”.
