Why go to a temple?

If you're spiritually alive, you're going to love this!
If you're spiritually dead, you won't want to read it.
If you're spiritually curious, there is still hope!

Why Go To The Temple ?

A 'devotee' wrote a letter to the editor of an indian newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to the Temple . 'I've gone for 30 years now, he wrote, and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 mantras.Many a times i have been forced to go to the temple."

But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of the mantras. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the Gurus are wasting theirs by giving services at all.Iam unable to coax my children to go to temple.

This started a real controversy in the 'Letters to the Editor' column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals.

But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work.

If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to the Temple for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!

Atlast,i had something to convince my children too cause i was now glad that i did visit a temple even if i hadnt seen any benefits directly.

When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!

Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment! on!!'When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say,

'God , could you get that for me?!!'
