The life is fast.
In this mechanical era, no one has time to sit and breathe. At the same time one also likes to continue with age old customs and rituals. But who has time to do things in traditional way ?
Look at the picture below. Though I was apprehensive of clicking this photo, I also wanted to show it to my people back home.
Electronic worshipping in progress…. in Tiger Cave temple
Traditionally worshipping or ‘pooja‘ of God is done with lighting the incense sticks and candles (diya), chanting of some mantras, ringing the bells etc.
Here are four steps of a faster option to do all these activities.
1. The Gods are lined like slot or vending machines.
2. Select your God, sit on a chair in front of ‘Him‘.
3. Put a coin in the little box in front of it.
4. For full one minute, the candles and incense sticks will be lit, bells ring and relative mantras chanted.
And there was a queue for this as well !! This was in Thailand.
I think the time is not very far when we see these worshipping in malls too. 😀
