Dear members,
I have a question.  
What is the difference between a yajna and a homa?  Is it the scale?  Or is it the type of offering (ghee versus others) or the mantras or purpose (kaamya karma versus loka kalyana)?  Yajna seems to have a broader meaning than fire ritual, but homa is strictly a fire ritual.
If this has been discussed before, can you please forward me the link?
With regards,
