Dear Friends, Most of the rituals that we follow are focused on pleasing the idols of the GODs established in the temples but the fact is that these rituals were meant to satisfy the GODs residing inside us. Yes! God totally resides inside us. Quite a number of us would have heard this but how is this possible? Let us understand with a very simple example. Our entire body is working on electricity and its principles. It’s the flow of electricity only in the body which makes us do whatever we do (Ayurveda calls this electricity as Pitta). So if this pitta or electricity becomes zero then our body will stop working, blood will stop circulating. This is what is termed as the state of absolute nothingness which is also a term used for LORD SHIVA when he goes in meditation (remember, its different from death because in death our body requirement is not met due to poor circulation of blood i.e. called as vata in Ayurveda, as a result cells start dying whereas in meditation, the body’s requirement becomes almost zero due to almost zero flow of pitta i.e. absolute stillness). Thus it is the electricity only which flows and creates each one of us in different ways. Everything and not just living beings contain electricity and that is why when electricity moves in different directions, it makes nature i.e. Pratriki which is what is DEVI PARVATI, the other side of LORD SHIVA making him ARDHNAREESHWAR (crudely referred to as hermaphrodite).
So, when electricity is low we feel sleepy and at times depressed. Even the act of meditation means reduction in flow of electricity in the mind and thus body. When its high we feel excited, may be aggressive, arrogant, angry.
During summer time when heat is at the peak in the weather, it excites this electricity and this is the reason that during summers we feel cheesed off, aggressive and to quench the thirst we need cooling things like water, fruits etc. ( to understand what to eat during different weathers, read THE ROOT CAUSE).
Onset of rains i.e. SAWAN cools down the pitta (or say LORD SHIVA) residing inside us. Thus we need to understand that we must enjoy the spells of rains during SAWAN to cool down our pitta (i.e. hot LORD SHIVA) residing inside us. Unfortunately, instead of understanding its true meaning we are putting water and milk on the shivalinga in temples and staying indoor during rains instead of enjoying it and cooling ourselves down.
Similar is the fact for other GODS as well like Shani, Surya, Jupiter etc. who are different forms of energy which are manifestations of lord SHIVA only. To understand the secrets of our life and the gods residing inside each one of us, read “THE ROOT CAUSE”. It will change the way you look at life.
