Why Hindus Worship Fire – Agni? – Importance of Fire or Agni in Hinduism

Fire or Agni is one of the important gods in Hinduism. Agni is widely mentioned in the Vedas. The most widely accepted belief is that it is Agni who carries the offering made by human beings to the gods. All the offerings made in a yajna are carried to the gods by Agni. It is again the fire god who brings down the blessing of the gods.
As per the Vedas, Agni has three forms – sun, lightning and fire on earth.
Rig Veda states that Sun deposits its luster with Agni before setting and Agni returns it in the morning. This is also one reason why a lamp is lit in the morning and evening in Hindu homes.
It is believed in Hinduism that the visible God is Sun (Surya) and fire is His representative on Earth. This is the reason Agni is invoked during all prayers from birth to death of a living being in Hindu Religion. When Agni is the witness to any event there is purity to that event; because Agni purifies whatever it touches.

Why is Milk Abhishekam Performed in Palani Murugan Temple?

Paal abhishekam or pouring of milk on the murti (idol) of Muruga is an important ritual in all Murugan Temples. The ritual has its origin in the PalaniMurugaTemple. But why is the milk abhishekam performed?

The murti worshipped at the PalaniMuruganTemple is believed to have been created by Siddhar Bogar from nine poisons (Nava Bashanam). He mixed nine deadly poisons and created a medicine which could cure all diseases of Kali Yuga (the present era). But the medicine could not be taken directly. So Siddhar created the murti of Muruga out of the medicine.
To extract the medicine from the murti, milk abhishekam is performed. The milk poured on the murti absorbs medicine. It then contains medicinal properties. The milk is then collected by devotees.

Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you – Paramahansa Yogananda

Be kind to others, so that you may learn the secret art of being kind to yourself.
Pray that unceasing truth flow into your mind…and unceasing joy flow into your soul.
Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself.
When the seeds of brotherly love take root in the hearts of people, wars will cease.
Possession of material riches, without inner peace, is like dying of thirst while bathing in a lake.
Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them. Paramahansa Yogananda
