PROLOGUE

Temples, temples temples and, temples; everywhere and anywhere are seen in our Punya Bharat right from the high snowcapped Himalayan peaks down to the salt-soaked shores of Kanyakumari. and Dwaraka to Kamakshipur across. Just look-up a temple tower piercing into the glimmering blue sky greets your eyes; or bend your head from any mount, the fluttering of saffron-dyed temple banner assails your ears; stretch your gaze along any river bank, a concourse of pilgrims drapped almost in wet outfit hurrying to, temples gleam into your sight How then about the case of concrete jungles, and idyllic rural areas? Surprise over-whelms you now; for either in street corners or at cross roads or under trees, or near ponds, or along highways or pathless forests, mini-temples enshrining a wide variety of adorable divinities of all denominations of every major religion meet your eye and bend your head in veneration provided you have well developed theistic instincts say in sound condition, of course justifiably they justify thereby, the omnipresence of the Omnipotent Lord. In icon form to the naked eye but to the inner eye the concrete living, all-observing ever succoring Omni compassionate Infinite Power worthy to be adored with flowers. Or, sacrifices in extreme cases only Does this not then appear that the sacred mother Earth out of infinite compassion has thrown up in certain places, some of her priceless gems for the benefit for her own dear children?
