The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism in response to questions on
1) Question – Beloved Master, People not belonging to this culture knows little about this particular Meenakshi temple. Please tell us who is Devi Meenakshi and her Husband? Why this grand temple? What are the visible and Invisible functions of this temple? Please tell us Swamiji? – Rajeev, India.
2) Question – As we see in our present time , Towers of Mobile, TV or Dish tv antenna’s everywhere connecting invisibility to satellite’s doing an incredible function for individuals and for society. My question is there is and was everywhere temples and deities in this culture. Anybody coming from outside just wonder – Is this just sentimental carved stones worshipping culture or just artistic sculpture ? What’s the invisible function of Temple’s deities?
See both questions same answer that is the reason I wanted to answer both questions together. As we see in our present time , Towers of Mobile, TV or Dish tv antenna’s everywhere connecting invisibility to satellite’s doing an incredible function for individuals and for society. My question is there is and was everywhere temples and deities in this culture. Anybody coming from outside just wonder – Is this just sentimental carved stones worshipping culture or just artistic sculpture ? What’s the invisible function of Temple’s deities?
Modern day dish TVs, Antennas, mobile towers all of them work in the level of certain frequency where the words, pictures, visuals can be transmitted. See the verbalization & visualization, names & forms can be transmitted from one place to another place through this mobile towers, dish TV antennas. But the temple towers are created to transmit super consciousness to one place to another place. Please understand in Meenakshi’s time there was television, conscious television. It used to be in stone slab. If you sit and meditate in front of the stone TV, she will appear. So each of the stone TV only became deities. In our temples you can see this happening. The TVs in which I am appearing flowers are offered to it, aarthi is performed to it…in LA already the TV is being put on a throne. The TV in which I am speaking is already becoming a deity. Same way the stones through which people connect with the super consciousness became a deity. In LA you can see the golden throne on which the TV in which I am appearing is sitting. Same way, all our deities everything is a connecting mechanism is a super consciousness. The mechanism which connects with the super consciousness. Please understand the deities and temple were not just sentimental carved stones or they are not just artistic sculptures, they are conscious transmitters they raise you to the super consciousness. In each house in Vedic tradition we have a puja room. All the puja rooms are your private conscious airport, are conscious transmission centres. The main temple is a place from where continuous super consciousness is radiating. So if you just sit and connect with a deep feeling connection. See in those days humans were so beautiful and simple just remembering the name of the deity is enough they were already in feeling connection with the deity. When I read Patanjali Yoga Sutras the sutra said sit in Siddhaasana and be in samadhi. That’s it! If you just sit in Siddhaasana your mind sits! Now if you sit, your mind shits. Mind is completely away from the body. Those days human beings were so simple and intelligent all the non-mechanical parts of their brain was awakened. The western culture which killed the functions of the non-mechanical parts of the brain. Always humans were brought up in such a way that the non-mechanical parts of the brain was fully alive and awakened. It is the cultural invasion that destroyed the greatest possibility of human beings when the non-mechanical parts of the brain is not functioning anymore these temples and deities are all being wasted. Otherwise they are a huge possibilities. Suddenly if you have to travel just 20 feet, or 30 feet above the air without petrol or diesel all our automobiles and roads everything will be useless. Understand you will wonder why so many cars, such huge roads. Waste. I think our ancestors are waste. You don’t understand at one period it was used. It was being useful. Understand our temples, our deities all this are useful if all your non-mechanical parts of the brain is awakened. Unclutching is the process to awaken your non-mechanical parts of the brain. When your non-mechanical parts of the brain is awakened, you will understand temples, deities how useful they are, how directly useful they are. How they are part of our life, how they enrich our life and how they make humans intelligent and enlightened. These are the methods created to create enlightened civilization. This grand temples are not built as just a monument. They are built as a conscious movement. It is not like Egyptian pyramids, monuments no. it is conscious movement to raise human beings to the highest consciousness. To make human beings experience the highest purpose. Understand unclutch, use the temples to achieve the highest consciousness.
