There are five things important to do in a temple.

1. Going to temple after a shower with clean clothes is to remind us that going to temple is to clean away unwanted dirty thoughts from our mind.
2.Understand all temples are constructed to reflect the human body.

Like a human lying down posture, the feet elevated up to the sky, the entrance (Gopuram)has an elevated tower. Feet is the symbol of goal in life and so we should enter the temple touching the crossing in step of the Gopuram to remind us the goal of life is to attain complete eternal happiness.





One of the important juncture of human body is where the end of spinal cord meets with the reproductive organs. This is the region symbolically called as the Mooladhara chakra represented by the flag-post in the inside area after one enters through the gopuram. This is where like the energy of the human body to recreate resides. Here is the best spot to do shashtanga Namaskaram. It is not wrong to do namakskaaram anywhere in the temple premises, but will get the proper Energy input only in this spot.

When you enter the temple, stand at the flag post, look up again the top of the flag post to elevate your Energy level to the highest. All festivals of the temple (celebrate the Energy vibration) begin by flag-hoisting in the kodi-maram (Flag Post). There are two ropes in the post to represent the two visible ida and pingala Energy currents (mind and intelligence) and an invisible rope the Susumna. Susumna is the invisible Awareness, intertwined in mind and intelligence, like the three plaits of hair. A braid (also called plait) is a pattern formed by intertwining three or more strands of human hair.
