The priests attach supreme significance to every item of
the rites observed from start to finish. They appear conservative in
several of their practices, but seen through the eyes of traditional
purists, they are justified. Modernity is totally banished from the precincts
of the holy temple. The entire atmosphere starts breathing
antiquity and orthodoxy from the very moment opening of temple doors
to the closing.
Certainly, modernity feels irked at certain
traditions like admission of males with dhoti's and bare chest,
yet the antiquity shirks - not its rigidity, nor thinks of
introducing any flexibility, even in the case of the highest ruling
authority, if he visits for Darshan. As nothing is hate-worthy in the
general scheme of creation, respecting the traditions alone paves
the way for harmonious kinship and exemplary bliss between the
visitors and the authorities.
it! And get emancipated!!
