Ringing the Bells -express thanks to the deities

pooja

All the Hindu temples have bell at the entrance of the temple or inside the temple and usually you need to ring it before you enter temple and while doing pooja to God.Bells are important symbols in Hindu worship. Each temple, or mandir, generally hangs at least one metal bell at its entrance for devotees to announce their presence to the Hindu deities. Priests or devotees ring more bells within the temple during worship in order to invoke the gods.

    As a religious studies minor, I was always fascinated with this feature of the Hindu tradition. I think it would make one who worships feel closer to God. As if you’re in His presence when you’re at temple.
