Different people have different vibes. You may enjoy the company of some people while you would feel miserable in the company of a few. Similarly, distinct places have a diverse aura, too. You will feel calm and composed in some spots while your mind would be restless in a few destinations. What’s the reason behind this?
In ancient times, the Indian philosophers believed that everything, whether living or non-living has its unique aura. But, what is an aura? Aura simply means the positive or negative energy a person, place, or thing omits. In this piece, we will discuss whether brass statues can create a positive aura in the temple or not.
There is no scientific proof of it. However, some scientific theories and spiritual beliefs both make it easy to believe.
The Science Behind Making Hindu God Idols
Hindu God statues are formerly known as Pratima, Vigraha, and Murti in the Sanskrit language. The reason behind this is statues or idols are mere sculptors made out of stone. However, a Vigraha is carved out from stone or metal, blended with Ayurveda, and has healing properties. A temple is built in a place where the earth’s electromagnetic field has a strong presence.
Because of the earth’s electric and magnetic field, the temple receives positive energy and good vibrations. The idol of God is placed in the center because the flow of magnetic waves is maximum there. In ancient times, the Indian temples were built after the idol of God was placed in the center.
Also, while placing God’s idol in the center, the makers would place a copper plate below the ground. This copper plate absorbs the electromagnetic waves and transmits them to God’s idol. Hence, a person who walks clockwise around the centerpiece receives radiated positive energy waves from God’s statue, and his body absorbs it. Ask a person who regularly visits a temple, and he will tell you exactly how he feels about this.
How a Temple Creates an Energetic Environment With Positive Aura?
Besides the idol, everything that is in the temple contributes to creating a positive aura. Let’s start with how the lamp lights create positive energy in the temple. During aarti, the heat and light energy coming from the aarti lamps and other lamps lit across the temple take you to a different dimension.
The fragrance from the fresh flowers and the burning smell from camphor, clove, and any other similar elements adds chemical energy to the environment. During worshipping God (pooja), the sounds of temple bells, temple instruments, conch shells, and mantra recitations produce excellent sound energy.
All these factors in the temple create an environment where you feel overwhelmed and get goosebumps. Plus, the sanctum of the temple is closed-ended on three sides. It makes the energy level multiple by three times and builds a positive aura inside the temple premises. This situation elevates psychological emotions, triggers positive hormonal changes, and eliminates negative energy.
Does Brass Statue Create Positive Aura in Temple?
Any statue made up of stone, brass, or any other metal has the same effect as before the idol was carved out of it. There is no scientific evidence affirming that God’s statues create positive energy. It is a belief and more about the entire atmosphere in the temple that makes you feel positive while you are in there. So the question remains – does a brass statue create a positive aura in a temple? Scientifically, no. Spiritually, yes.
Apart from this fact, there is a scientific explanation of why people feel positively overwhelmed when they’re close to the idol. It’s called the placebo effect. It is not proof of positive energy or power inside the temple. However, it demonstrates the fact that the temple arrangements of idols and construction create an energetic atmosphere.
Usually, a temple should be conceived on land where the earth’s electromagnetic waves are dense. It can be anywhere in the outskirts of the town, middle of the village, or on a hilltop. The electromagnetic lines are the densest at the poles.
The soaked-up energy reaches you through your mind’s inclination to receive positive vibes and not because of the statue’s power. Because of this, there’s a belief to offer newly-purchased ornaments in the feet of an idol before wearing them. The jewel’s metal absorbs the positive energy from the idol and passes it on to the wearer.
Similarly, women are obliged to wear maximum ornaments before visiting temples because their ornaments absorb the energy from idols. Even the water used to savor the idol is like magneto-therapy. That’s why after pooja three spoons of water are distributed among the visitors, and the rest is sprinkled all over the temple.
When we think that what our forefathers or ancient philosophers believed is senseless, we might be mistaken. All the rituals and spiritual practices carried out for ages are well-researched, have a purpose and scientific base at some point. Regular temple visits are a way of getting refreshed, full of energy, and leading towards a healthy and pleasant life.
Meditating in front of an idol while focusing on absorbing its positive aura can be a way of doing welfare to oneself. Remember, it is you and not the statue which is the center of positivity!
