Another Auspicious Day!!
Today 30 July 2014, is another auspicious day, AADI POORAM. Goddess Aandal's birth anniversary. Its a belief that Goddess Aandal born on the day of pooram nakshathiram in the Tamil month Aadi. Its good that we go to temple on these days with family, to spend few minutes together. Lifestyle is changing from generation to generation. There is no much time to spare for family. Huh, nobody can blame anybody for this. Its TIME, which forces the change. Okay lets not get into this. I have something else in my mind to scribble here.
Its common query araises when one sees a temple, "why is a temple built when everybody says God is everywhere? Praying at home, doing poojas at home is not enough? Visiting temple is that important?" Our elders would compel us to visit temple as frequent as possible, then only God will see us, hear us. Is that true?
Of course, opinion differs and I can't expect you all to agree with me. Up to me, it might be partial. God is a supreme power and knows every move of yours. God knows what you want. But gives what you need, when you need it. God don't tell you to come and meet him in temple, to fulfil your needs. God expects our heart to be pure.
People enter temple with hopes and leave with positive thoughts. What is filled inside the temple is, the positive energy created by the positive thoughts of lot of people. More gets collected and stored in the sannathi or garbagraha because of converging shape of gopuram. Once you enter this place, the hair in your body, gold ornaments that you wear, etc., will observe those positive energy and make your body and mind calm. This makes you light hearted and leave with positive thoughts. This would be the hidden reason why the temple visiting practice is made very often. May be, lot more reasons exists. But this one is quite convincing for me. What about you?
There are lot of queries with curiosity to ask why is this and that. There is a quite interesting column carries conversation between God and science, in a worthy monthly magazine - "Frozen thoughts". May be, we would have got explanation for many of this, if ancestors traditionally practiced us, "This is the direct reason and that's why we insist you to follow this for your wellness".
