India is recognized for its prosperous Hindu tradition and culture. There are hundreds of amazing Hindu temples in the country with unique and unlike design, shape, locations; but, not all temples are built as described in Vedic Vastu Shastra and literature. Paying visits to the temples are not only to get blessing, but to get a peace and superior mind set. In India hindu temple architects use Vedic temple designs to build temples. Hindu temple architecture has unique and incredible designs. The following 7 scientific reasons are the genuine purpose of visiting the temple according to the Hindu scriptures.
The Location And Structure Of The Temple
Temples are found intentionally at a place where the positive energy is present in abundance from the attractive and electric wave conveyances of north or south post push. The idol of deity is set in the middle center of the temple, called “Garbhagriha” or “Moolasthanam”. Preferably, the structure of the temple is constructed after the statue has been placed in a high positive wave core place. This moolasthanam is the position where earth’s magnetic waves are exposed to be more extreme.
Removing Your Footwear Before Entering Temple
Temples are the site that contains pure vibrations of attractive and electric fields with good energy. In olden days, temples were constructed in such a way that the floor in the middle of the temple were good tool of these positive vibrations allow them to pass from our feet to the body. Hence it is essential to walk bare footed while you enter the center of the temple.
Lighting Camphor(Kapur) In Front Of statue
Camphor Activate Sight Sense Activated
The inner center of the temple is generally dark where the icon is placed. You generally close your eyes to pray and when you open your eyes you must see the camphor, which was lit to do the Aarti in front of the deity. This light seen in the dark activates your vision sense.
Offering Flowers To God At The Temple
Flowers Activate Smell Sense
Only particular flowers are used for offering to God like jasmine, marigold, rose petals based on special factors, amongst them fragrance is mainly important. The fragrance of the flower, camphor and illustration sticks all together have stronger essence to maintain your smell sense active and pleasurable giving peace to the mind.
Drinking Theertham – holy water used in the pooja
Theertham Activate Taste Sense
The next part of your act would be to drink theertham(holy water used in the pooja) preferably from a silver or a copper pot. The water used for theertham generally would contain Basil leaves (Thulasi) dipped in water and have to be stored at least for eight hours in the copper vessel. According to Ayurvedic science, water stored in a copper vessel has the capability to poise all the three doshas in your body, (vata, kapha and pitta) and it does so by really charging the water. By drinking this Basil water you activate your taste sense.
Doing Pradakshina Around
As a final point, after performing all the over rituals you should walk around the deity inside the Garbhagirha, the innermost place of the temple in clockwise direction for 9 times. Pradakshina actually means right side in Sanskrit. The idol inside the Garbhagriha attract all the energy from the camphor heat, bell sound, and vibrates the good energy within the Garbhagriha for a positive duration of time. When you do the pradakshina at this point of time, you tend to attract all these positive vibrations once your 5 senses are activated by the temple positive energies.
Applying Tilak or Kumkum offered By The Temple Priest
On the forehead, between the your eyebrows, is a place that is considered as a main nerve point in individual body since earliest times. The Tilak is supposed to avoid the loss of “energy”, the red ‘kumkum’ between the eyebrows is supposed to keep energy in the body and organize the various levels of meditation. While applying Kum-Kum the place in the mid-brow area and Adnya-chakra are involuntarily pressed. This also facilitates the blood circulation to the facial muscles.
