Fact - Though the idol within a temple doesn’t require a bell at all, but they are there for a particular reason. The purpose of the bell is to help keep the chit of all the worshipers focused, so that one doesn’t hear the hustle and bustle outside.
Details - Similarly, other rituals like dressing and putting ornaments on the idols, lighting candles, incense sticks are all helpful in focusing the chit and meditating on the Lord. How thoughtful! Isn’t it?
Fact- So far, we’ve known that comparison leads to unhappiness. However, it can lead to happiness too, which stays with us forever.
Details – It is possible to get rid of unhappiness arising out of discontent. Through positive comparison, you can actually remain happy in any situation. For example- in spite of living a comfortable life, we often complain for things that we don’t have. In such situations, we should think that there are so many children in this world, who do not have parents, a shelter to live, they do not get two square meals a day or proper education. On the other hand, we have it all. In this way, it is possible to be content and happy by making this comparison. What an incredible mantra for happiness!
Fact - Meat is a heavy ‘food’ and hinders the spiritual growth of a person.
Details – Everything is the effect of food. Eaten food turns into "brandy" (that which produces a deleterious effect on a person's awareness)in the body. These effects are directly linked with spiritual awareness. Heavy or excessive food decreases spiritual and mental awareness. Non-vegetarian food is heavy and does not allow the development of one's spiritual intellect. If you want to progress spiritually you must eat vegetarian food, which is light and does not create intoxication. It also helps in increasing awareness.
