Darshan in a Temple (Method and the Underlying Science)
Darshan in a Temple (Method and the Underlying Science)
Description
Back the Book

Rituals to create Sanskars, Religious practices. Holy and religious festivals, vowed religious observances are opportunities to put the teachings of Hindu Dharma into practice. Faith develops by following Dharmik conduct. Faith combined with propagation of Dharma helps unite those who have fervors for Dharma.

In unity, followers of Dharma can be protected from heretics. Unity will also help fufil the higher goal of 'Establishing the Divine kingdom.' Since this task has Divine blessings, it is considered to be samashti sandman (Collective Spiritual practice for the beneft of Society) of the highest order. When vyashti sadhana (individual spiritual practice) is combined with Samadhi sadhana, God-realization can take place faster!

Preface

‘Devalaya (Temple) is an abode of God meaning, the actual existence of god. ‘By going to a Devalay our wishes are accepted by God and we experience mental peace’-with this faith the devotees visit a Devalay. It is said that God yearns for bhav (Spiritual emotion). It does not matter which way a staunch devotee with bhav has daeshan (View of the Deity), he still experience God’s grace; however, an ordinary does not have as much and hence, it is imperative that he has darshan in a spiritually manner.

Only when the soot formed on the lamp glass is cleaned does the bright light of the lamp spread outside. Likewise, before the actual darshan of the Deity, the soot-like covering of Ring-Tama around us has to be eliminated and bhav awakened within, to fully avail the benefit of Chaitanya (Divine consciousness) and grace of the Deity. Information on how this can be achieved by spiritually correct method of darshan of the Deity,is given in this Holy text. Not only is the correct method given in the text, but also the reacted subtle-level spiritual science is mentioned. This will help develop faith in the method, and alternatively, in the Dharmashastras (Scriptures) as well.

Scientific answers to various questions, such as why enter a Devalay only after washing the feet, why have darshan of the Deity by standing beside the image of the tortoise present in front of the ldol (instead of doing this standing in between or stting down), what prayer to make while having daeshan of the Deity, why, how and how many time to perform pradakshina (Circumambulation) around the Deity etc. are given in this Holy text.

We pray at the Holy feet of Sri Guru that if by reading the text, someone has darshan of a Deity following the correct method, and it creates awareness about the subject amongst his relatives and neighbors, we will taken that to be the true accomplishment of having written this Holy text- Compiler.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
