How to WORSHIP in HINDU TEMPLE

In Hindu religion every God needs to be worshiped in distinct way, still there are some basic ways to worship which I'll list now.
  1. Going to a temple empty handed is not good, at least pick a flower that is good for worship. Ask the locals around temple about the best flower for the god/goddess inside.

  2. Always carry Poojai/ Worshiping material above the waist.

  3. Before entering the temple worship the Gopuram or Vimanam, there by your are greeting Devatas in Gopuram! But there will always be a spot inside temple were gopuram is fully visible, do not confuse that with worshiping, interior view gives closer look there by explaining the architectural work of Kings men.

  4. Don't step on Vasakal of any entrance, they made above precious metals and stones which are holy.

  5. Do ashtanga namaskar(Lay down, 6th pose in Surya Namaskaram) on mark close to Kodimaram / Main pedam / Guarding god outside main hall

  6. Look for Bodyguard's statue of the main God around, worship them and request/pray for entering the main hall for dharsan, they might not reply still you can proceed further.

  7. Always see the god from foot to face this is how gods must be worshiped, looking from face to foot is wrong method and should not be used with god. And that is why "look" differs from "see".

  8. If you have some archanai to perform maintain stillness in the environment till then or chant matras on main god. Return one half of the (broken)coconut as thachanai (in manner to thank) to Priest.

  9. Always leave the hall walking backwards so that your back is not physically shown to god(Remember movies on Kings/Gods peoples greet them and walk back).

  10. Never steal plants or anything from temple and its premises, it brings very bad fate especially in case of Lord Shiva's Temple. Try to sit and relax, temples were meant for it in early days.
I usually bullet things but here I have numbered means order must not be changed at any case.

Night of 13th April all the preparations for the rituals were done in the temple, Sudalaimadam swamies idol was decorated with flowers and fruits and coconuts dedicated to the lord reached above his chest.My cousin Sudalai muthu, senior priest of the shrine reached home by late night got blessings of his father Late Shanmugam Sundaram and blessed the family members in 8x10 room dedicated for God, then started towards the temple. There peoples in huge number were waiting for the Sudalaimada swamy's arrival. Different rituals were offered by people to the Lord in order to get the blessings. As its is believed Sudaimada swamy, son Lord Siva used to consume meat in Kailash for this reason he is sent to earth were he can satisfy his earthy hunger there by not polluting Kailash.



Offering meat to Sudalaimadan is the most important and an watchful event in the festival. Many devotees offer their goat & pig so as to please the lord and get his blessings. That midnight Sudalaimada swamy …

why do people sweat more in chennai???

One of the famous ornament of chennai is its summer!. Everyone here would have at least once talked about its effect and the way they affected. People comes out with sweats flowing from the body is the usual scene of chennai noon. The sweat produced is not just due to the temperature of the region. It is in fact due to the high humidity of chennai.

To explain this lets see a fact, people in chennai sweats more than the people in delhi where the temperature is higher than the former.

This is because of chennai's location. Chennai is located near sea due to which sea water evaporation is high during summer which in turn increases the humidity (Amount of water vapour present in air).
Normally human blood temperature is about 35 deg Celsius. If the outside temperature is more than that, then our system tries to automatically cools down by releasing sweat from the body.

The sweat which is released cools the surrounding heat by converting into vapour thereby reducing the body temperature…
