Why do we use Agarbatti?

Posted on

incense (1)

All of us are mesmerised by the sweet fragrance of the exquisite agarbatties while moving around temples, especially ISKCON temples where their stores are full with loads and varieties of agarbatties, each having it’s own distinct aroma that submerges a person into an ocean of pleasure.

Even while in the midst of the discussion, if we happen to come across a very pleasant sweet smell on incense, it arrests our attention for a while and makes us forget what we are discussing.

Humans have been delighted by pleasant aromas from the time immemorial and it is said that the kingly orders used to spend millions of rupees on the exquisite scents and essential oils for their daily purpose of bathing, massaging and all.

And, in temples the worship of the deity starts by offering an incense first, followed by other items. As stated in various scriptures like Hari Bhakti Vilasa, one must offer incense to the lord and he gets a load of blessings from him in return.

There is prescription about the types of incense  which may be offered to the lord. Eg. Guggul, Ghee, Sandal etc.

Scientific Paradigm

As per the description, the agarbatties or the incense sticks are made with pure herbs and ghee , which on ignition, leave scented smoke. The scented smoke purifies the atmosphere by releasing oxygen and other disinfectant gases. These gases are released just in the right proportion to make the environment suitable for a healthy mind.

The scented smoke calms the mind and makes it concentrate on the deity rather than going here and there in the prayers. This relieves the devotee of all tensions and anxiety.

Why Brahmin priest blow conch shells?

Posted on

Whenever we enter a temple to attend an aarti, we see that the Brahmin priests come out of the deity altar with a conch shell and blow it very loudly, three times. Only after that, the aarti starts.

As stated in Hari Bhakti Vilas,

“0 king, a person who sounds a conch shell in Lord Kesava’s temple becomes free of all sins. He goes to Brahmaloka where he enjoys with Lord Brahma.”

The conch shell is very dear to the supreme lord Sri Krishna and hence, in his quadruple expansions, he keeps the conch shell in one of his four hands. The conch shell was offered to the Supreme lord by Shankhachuda, a demon who had Srimati Tulasi as her wife. Actually, Shankhachuda is an eternally liberated devotee from the abode of the supreme lord, who was cursed by Srimati Radharani to take that form.

Blowing conch shells is considered very auspicious. It is said that wherever the sound of the conch shell reaches, ghostly species and all sorts of negative energies run away from that place, making it completely pure. The conch shell produces the universal sound vibration, “Om” and this sound form of Krishna is ever purifying. It purifies all directions and terrorizes the negative energies.

Scientific Paradigm

The blowing of conch shell has tremendous effect on the blower as well as the listener. The one who blows conch shell is freed from all sorts of respiratory and mental disorders and the listener from all sorts of mental diseases.

The sound vibration emanating from the conch shell resonates with the natural human body frequency and hence, creates a stream of positive and healthy vibrations. These vibrations have a positive feedback and hence, provide the listeners with a peaceful aura. One can himself feel very happy and peaceful when someone sounds a conch shell.

Sounding a conch shell invite Sri Lakshmi Devi to one’s house and let her stay there for a longer time.

There are some conch shells which cannot be blown, but are worshipped. They are known as Dakshinavarti conch shells. They are worshipped in Mahalakshmi Puja.
