As research is proving every day, the cosmic truths that quantum physics is still struggling to comprehend, were already commonplace in the ancient and rich Vedic tradition. With an enlightened insight into the delightful play of matter and energy that makes up our universe, the Vedic seers had declared more than ten thousand years ago that whatever exists is nothing but energy. (Isha vasyam idam sarvam – Isha Vadya Upanishad). Whether we are aware of it or not, a constant energetic exchange is happening between ourselves and our environment. We live and move in an ocean of chaotic energies – both positive and negative. On subtle levels, we are powerfully influenced by the energies and thoughts of others, the energies of our living and working spaces, the residual energies of the objects we touch, and the situations we encounter. Energy imbalances in our system are the root cause for a vast majority of our ailments – from obesity to insomnia to mood swings. Today, more than ever before, we can appreciate the Vedic intelligence that gave rise to the concept of temples. The powerful positive vibrations present in a temple can flush out negative energies. Without even being aware of it, we are deeply cleansed and recharged, resulting in physical and mental healing. In modern times, temples are truly the oxygen bars for the soul!
