     PROLOGUE

Our scriptures embody thousands of references enjoining mankind to visit temples for a multiplicity of reasons. The sight of the deities in their enchanting forms and postures, installed in ancient or modern shrines certainty has such a chastening influence, that even the atheist or iconoclast can turn the search light inwards to find out, where he and his black nature stand provided he frequents them, that in fact invariably makes him conscious of the right course of action to be pursued. Further. their sculptural grandeur and architectural excellence touch at his aesthetic sense and bring in a change too. In some cases. Listening to hymns, chants and the like makes him oblivious of his base impulses for a while atleast. In many cases as a matter of fact. Meeting of persons of varied cultures promotes mutual understanding etc. Hence the advocacy of pilgrimage by every religion. (Vide-Yatra And Its Paramartha for a comprehensive picture).
