In olden days, it was an accepted routine to get up early in the morning, have a bath and go to the temple. Today, with our fast life and regular stress, we find going to a temple as an ordeal. Those who are dedicated make it everyday and the other few go whenever time permits.


So why exactly a temple early in the morning? Research says that temples are built in specific places after a lot of calculation and scientific intervention. Temples are usually found on places where the magnetic attraction of the earth is the maximum.

Gravity at a macroscopic level.

Since we are all pulled towards the centre of the earth due to a gravitational force, it is believed that all of us are magnetic bodies.

So if we go to a place which has lot of magnetism, we are recharged with an energy that helps us to carry on work for some more time.




Visiting a temple is thus a way of recharging our batteries and revving up energy to carry on in life.

When we pray, we are regaining lost strength and thus become charged up for the day. Thus the system of going to temples has always been an intelligent approach by our elders.

For the uninitiated, temples are just a form of worshiping the Power above.

Commercialising it is just another form of offering to God.
