darshanam 1In this hectic world of activity, a visit of the temple offers solace and peace. The number of devotees thronging religious places is increasing day by day. It enriches not only the individual but also the family. Chanting of mantras and prayers offers to the mind, peace and tranquility, releases tensions and soothens the mind. Getting up very early in the morning (Brahmamuhoorthum) followed by purification of the body, makes the individual fresh and fit as a fiddle. The exposure to sunlight (preferably bare chested in the case of men) provides vitamin D to the body. Walking under the banyan tree, using basil dipped water, sandal paste, viboothi etc are highly useful as source of remedies for several ailments. While the needs of the body are taken care of, it would be a good idea to listen devotional songs and talks. As it provides a lot of knowledge in spiritual matters.
