When I was a kid… I lived in a place where lots of temple use to around.
But going to the temple used to be a kind of mission as the famous temples were pretty far and one has to climb up many stairs to reach the God.
Once you reach to the temple, the feeling actually used to be very pleasant… as if you have achieved something.
I always wonder why God likes to live in such an non accessible place (ya..ya.. i agree he does not like to be with us.. his own mistakes !!! )
But somehow I felt he wanted to check our devotion… and thats y when u go to these far located places… it feels great… Even the temples are very elaborated and nicely made. I have seen some temples carved out of single stone or made out of granite slabs… they feel magnificent and one cant feel the difference between normal houses and these temples.
Now when I am staying in a city I just donn feel like going to temples… the feeling of calmness and devotion just does not come to me… it’s not that all social and physiological studies have done their job and made me atheist… no way… I am a blind believer… Still I don’t cut my hair on Tuesdays… and nails too!!!
But that feeling of nothingness (I mean nothing beyond the super power… or Nirvana or tiredness after climbing many steps…) is just missing.
Recently I visited one temple (because my mum said it lunar-eclipse and you should say hi to Gods…so they will keep you in their friend list), the floor was made out of white granite and all the idols were made out of Black sand stone or something similar (sorry… I am not into stones that much… ( just my birth stones should work properly). So ya, this temple was full white marbled floor and stainless steel furnished… thick pipes of stainless steel… I was just wondering what God must be thinking inside that place …………as they are use to difficult surroundings and cleaner weather…(beg your pardon but I am only talking about Hindu Gods, who live in High mountains).
So here comes another confusion god made us or we made the god…
