Scientific Reasons Behind Hindu Rituals

Hindu culture is full of rituals and customs that we love to question. But, some of these have scientific reasons behind their existence.

Peepal Oxygen

There is a reason why Peepal is considered sacred in Hinduism. It is one of the few trees which produces the maximum amount of oxygen at night. It is also used to treat various infections, healing of wounds, improve fertility and treat poisoning.

Temple bells

Temple bells serve an important purpose! The eco of a bell lasts for about 7 seconds, long enough to activate the 7 chakras and reduce negativity.

Hindus often sit on the floor while eating. When you sit on the floor, you usually sit cross legged. This helps in digestion and calming the body.

Tulsi is considered holy primarily because of the medical value of the herb.
