why we pray in temples , mosques , churches or a holy place ?

One time travelling with friends by car and it was evening time so we all stopped near a temple as all my friends wanted to join the evening Aarti or pooja or prayers …..that time looking at the rituals performed thought there must be a scientific and spiritual meaning behind all these…..what exactly we do in a pooja?…

1 ….we decorate the lord…..the beauty…..for our eyes…..
2…..we ignite a oil lamp…..the light and beauty….also for eyes…
3 …..we burn incense …..for fragrance……for nose….
4 ….we offer flowers…..for fragrance and sensitivity and beauty….for touch….
5…..we have a bell ringing……for music and ears……
6…..we offer food……creativity and taste……
7 …we sing bhajans…..for oneness right and left brain and memory….
a science is a method by which in very small time we perform much larger work……going to a temple which is a place of creativity and spiritual science……which knowingly…… unknowingly …..creates oneness of senses and as per the latest scientific report …art and music brings happiness in mind….
figures of Psychologists per 100,000 inhabitants
Argentina: 121.2
Denmark: 85
Finland: 79
Switzerland: 76
Norway: 68
Germany: 51.5
Canada: 35
Brazil: 31.8
USA: 31.1
Ecuador: 29.1
in India this number is less than 3 per millions……
Hindu been a great scientific and spiritual society so has been different societies around the world and in all the societies spiritual practices there has been science and sacredness modified to suit the geographical, social, envoinmental and economic conditions. but basic aim has been love and happiness only. With time many spiritual practices…..some where it has become rituals also….but still they serve the purpose which used to be meditation earlier now at least medicine…..but still keep society together.
take time out.. go to a temple….mosque or a church or the worship place of your choice ….feel the spirituality…..see the people….see their emotions….see the faith…..feel the sensitiviness if can not go there come outside in the garden feel the breeze….look at the full moon….. life is a journey of creative enlightenment….and going to sacred places or in nature is taste of that enlightenment.
hope this post make little sense to all the readers ….

what is spirituality ?

eternity is dancing on eternity like football…..like our soul inside the body….. timeless in time ….

purpose of life is to mirror the eternal ….neither light nor darkness…..neither past nor future…. which is present….love….beauty …happiness …..all feeling….and to feel one need to be sensitive and for that we have finest and most expensive body machine with ten senses …..

Like our body what ever we eat…..knows only language of essence and waste…..body accepts essence in form of blood …..rest is flushed out as waste….

so all our senses should know the language of essence….
so what ever we consume through these senses should bring the 
essence as love, beauty , happiness and present…….

knowing this language of essence is spirituality….

and that can happen with making every breath as prayer and grace of God
……making every work as worship of work …and seeing God in every Atom like Bhakta Prahalad…..or MIra….. and all enlightened masters ….and children.

SWETKETU being asked by the parents that ….have you known one by knowing which you will know everyone ?…..so be sensitive to taste the taste behind all tastes……but as a true human.

like ASTHAVAKRA in the royal assembly of King Janak……. I thought to came to gathering of wisdom people but to my dismay you look at my body….which is just the cover……leather only not the essence inside.

Body is our real guru because of this only we can mirror God….a.temple of God …..so keep it clean outside and more important keep it clean inside….then in every atom…….OM appears……ALLAH appears …..God appears….our childhood friend appears as ….now , love , beauty, happiness what many call SAT CHIT ANAND……

living with this feeling every breath is spirituality…..

love all.
