Description

Why do we need temples? What, if anything, is their unique contribution to the world today? What prompted our ancestors to invest so much time, talent and treasure to create and maintain the Vedic temple system? Were they relevant only for older cultures that modern scientific communities consider ignorant and less sophisticated? Is it possible that perhaps they were more intelligent and in tune with the subtler energies of the universe than the cultures of the world are today? From time immemorial, not only Hindus or rishi cultures, but cultures from all over the world in all traditions have been creating space for the Divine as part of their culture and lives. It is human nature. Researchers say that even animals living in groups allot a specific area for rest that is not used for eating or anything else. The Hindu culture created huge temples for communities as a means to relate with the Divine. Every village in India has a temple, making one wonder why these huge, complex and beautiful structures were created, even if the homes in most villages were made of mud. Most of these temples are built in granite and are often much more expensive than the cost of all houses in these villages put together. What did we gain spiritually, culturally and socially from these huge structures?
