Ancient Indian wise men discovered that rhythmic temple bell sound works as an effective cleanser of negativity and restores energies. Therefore, the sound of temple bell and gong at the time of arati in the morning and evening is an integral part for daily rituals in temples.
Though some people go to temples to offer their pure selfless prayer, most visit temples to seek solace. They may need a respite from hard times, mental agony, diseases or the unrest in their hearts. After their prayers, they leave behind a lot of negativity in the temple area when going back to their homes. Therefore, priests do it’s space’s regular cleansing twice daily at sunrise and sunset by the sound of temple bell together with the blowing of the conch. In south Indian temples, it is also done through music. There, at the time of arati, people play nadaswaram and drums.
Energy restoration by Sound of Bell in temple
Collective chanting of mantras aloud, reciting names of gods, and singing their bhajans also help to restore the lost energy of the temple space. In your home, you can do the same through healing mantra recordings, the sound of the bell, or using singing bowls particularly in corners where negativity harbours the most. This helps immensely in creating good vibes and in driving negativity out of the walls of a house.
Rhythmic sound of the temple bell is the best way to flush out negative energies from any sick structure. It is quite natural that you feel uncomfortable and uneasy. Especially when you visit a house with a prolonged illness or to a hospital where diseases have a natural dwelling. The same goes with a police station, where negative thoughts and emotions find an abode. In these places, negativity enters deep and accumulates in their walls. Regular and sustained clearing of such places by playing soothing music helps replenish their sapped out energy.
