Being a married women you have to follow few rituals for the sake of society because if you are not following them, people will make your life uneasy.
I am a great believer of Indian culture but my question is to the peoples who always create fuss over these rituals
“Do you know the reason behind it? why should I follow these rituals?”
If you ask such questions to elders they will say :
“We never asked such questions to our elders.” or
“It is inauspicious, if you don’t follow it something bad will happen” or
they will consider it rude because they don’t know the exact answer and they never bothered to know it.
Here is some google search reasons for the rituals followed by us :
1. Touching the feet –
When you touch the feet of an elder keeping aside your ego, then the elder accepts your shraddha or your reduced ego and their heart
emits positive vibes or thoughts and energy. We can also say that a kind of cosmic energy also released while touching the feet that connect each other’s
mind and heart. The same we can say with handshakes and hugs also
2. Wearing Jewelry –
Jewelry like toe ring, bangles, mangal sutra etc helps in improving blood circulation. Apart from this, Indian jewelry is also considered to be a matter of
great security in time of financial crisis due to its good value.
3. Navratri Fasting –
Navratri came twice in a year, both the months are the months of changing seasons. Fasting helps to cope up with weather changes.
4. Worshiping Peepal tree-
Peepal tree has not many benefits. It produces no fruits and its wood is not strong enough for any purpose, but our ancestors knew that ‘Peepal’ is one of the
very few trees (or probably the only tree) which produces oxygen even at night. So in order to save this tree because of its unique property they related it
5. Ear Piercing
Piercing the ears has a great importance in Indian culture. Indian physicians and philosophers believe that piercing the ears helps in the development of intellect,
power of thinking and decision making skills.
Our ancestors are very smart people they created these rituals because they know when things are connected to religion people will be compelled to follow it but it is good not to create fuss if someone decides not to follow them especially when they don’t know the reason behind it.
Respect always come from the heart, you can’t bound anyone to respect you by forcing them to touch the feet.
