Temples are the place that contains pure vibrations of magnetic and electric fields with positive energy. In olden days, temples were built in such a way that the floor at the center of the temple were good conductors of these positive vibrations allowing them to pass through our feet to the body. Hence it is necessary to walk bare footed while you enter the core center of the temple.
Another known reason is shoes and chappals are used everywhere hence they tend to get all the impurities like dirt, germs etc which spoil the pure environment of the temple and is the source of negative energy. Five senses of Human Body are sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. These are activated by the following actions in the temple.
The positive energy in the temple is absorbed
properly only if you ensure that all five senses are activated in your body
while you are in the temple. Also the place of worship is said to be
pleased only if your five senses are pleased. Once the camphor is brought to
you after offering the prayer, you usually put your hands over the camphor
to make your hands warm and then you touch your eyes with your warm hands.
This action assures your touch sense is active.
What does the Nei thenga (Ghee filled Coconut) and the Nei Abhishekam Signifies? The concept of Nei Thenga has a very higher spiritual meaning. The coconut carried to the shrine is considered as the representation of Human body, which has to be kept clean internally and externally. As part of external cleaning it has to be cleaned thoroughly and the fiber and all small particles around should be rubbed off and should be kept clean and smooth. It symbolizes the purity of devotee’s body.
