1973 Delhi Discourses- Part 13 of 15


It is up to us therefore to nurture the divinity in the temples by ensuring that the pujas are performed properly and that the temple rituals are observed with diligence.

We should see that the temple premises are kept clean and the deepa is lit every day.

We should also see that the cloth that we offer to Lord is washed daily.

If only we could ensure these things, automatically we shall be able to derive as much benefit, if not more, than what we get by the establishment of hospitals and other social welfare institutions.

Since a temple is a place of divinity, of course we have to observe certain rules while we are in the precincts of the temple.

For instance, we should not use anything meant for God for ourselves.
