The recent collapse of the Garbagraha of the SriKaalahasti temple was a traumatic event at many levels. It is symbolic of the loss of political power of Hindus that our temples are no longer in our control. It is indicative of the very anti Hindu political and intellectual class in India that is destroying temples with deliberate neglect which is in no way less poisonous than the sack of Taxila, Alexandria, Nalanda and other Heathen centers of knowledge/dharma. It also reveals the apathy of the Hindu masses that are in an oxycontin type state induced by “bollywood”, TV and the chimeras of so called “western style development” (which is sold only to developing countries as the west itself does not practice it).
However, this write-up is not about any of the big and obvious factors driving the decline of Hindu temples. This is about a less talked about factor that revealed itself in the fashion of things called miracles/magic and coincidences by the west but accepted by dharma as a simple law of existence – when you ponder and focus on something many answers come.
And so while I was pondering and focusing I heard a couple of speeches and read some literature on the “science of Hindu temples” (one of them by Osho who actually held Hindu temples in high regard despite being painted as an iconoclast). The typical structure of a traditional Hindu temple is that of a reservoir of powerful vibrations. I say traditional, because a number of new north Indian style Hindu temples do not necessarily fit the bill. The old style temple with one primary deity and a “garbagraha” is what one is referring to. Over the years such temples become vestibules of power because of the chanting and poojas (note: One does not use the word prayer). The older temples are even more powerful because they were set up by more powerful individuals (powerful from a dharma perspective) and both the quality and timeframe of chants and worship have made them potent. And the so called secularists (who are vicious anti Hindus and nothing else – representing church and Saudi Arabia) are fully aware of this.
When individuals who are not aligned with Hindu dharma visit such temples (as tourists or otherwise) this disturbs the temple from both a vibrational and structural perspective (this is not me but literature and perspectives of learned individuals). Over the years a reduction in authentic chanting, entry of individuals not aligned with Hindu traditions weakens the structure of temples which are meant to stand for thousands of years. And maybe, this is one of the contributing factors of the collapse of SriKaalahasti which was taken over by anti dharmic forces, became a tourist spot and has had reduced chanting for years now.
Every time the anti dharmic enters Tirupathi, they reduce the potency of the temple. This includes the likes of half the members of the temple board, Sonia Gandhi and other such specimens. The case is similar for a host of other temples across India where the so called secularists are clamouring for universal entry (these fellas never clamour for universal entry to Mecca) i.e., Guruvayur. As a digression, there is nothing wrong with non-Muslims not being allowed into Mecca. Muslims are entitled to their scared places.
Temples are not tourist destinations or bank accounts though they have been reduced to that level. They are vestibules of divinity and power for Hindu society and need to be preserved for future generations. Let others not shove their opinions into our faces. Listening to these do paisa ka opinions – media, so called intellectuals and our entire political class, while disregarding our thousands of years of traditions will only lead to extinction.
Hence for starters let Hindus temples are for Hindus only.
PS: Hindus does not mean Indians.
