11 Indian Traditions And The Science Defining Them

 Welcome Guys.

Today I am going to discuss about some of the Indian traditions having strong scientific reasoning which everyone should follow for a better and healthy life. I am sure, all of you agree with me that our ancestors have far more knowledge than today's generation by the completion of this post.

First, Let us discuss some of the traditions followed by ancestors (a very few these days) and the scientific reasons behind them.

Worshiping Tulasi:

The Tulasi is one of the most sacred plants in India. People worship Tulasi thinking it's auspisious. But the scientific reason is, tulasi is a medical plant cures almost all diseases in early times. Our ancestors know that today we are cutting down all the trees resulting mass deforestation. So they said tulasi is connected to Lord Vishu's, creator of universe and made people to worship it.

Visiting Temples Regularly: 

Early, temples are the most pleasant places. With lots of work pressure daily, people used to visit temples and had some pleasant time and enjoyed it. When people ring the temple bell, it creates vibration which will clear all the negative thoughts in our mind. 

But today, it became worst that, temples are not the pleasant places but became the most noisiest places, crowds is enough and big music systems. People don't know that temple is for refreshment, they just visit temples because they think that something bad will happen or god may curse them.

Eating food in leaves is healthy. When hot food served on the leaves, the hotness evaporates the leafy chemicals which is observed by the food. The intake of this food is a great natural way to be healthy.

At last, I am going to say that our ancestors and their cultures are the best and the healthiest. Today majority of the people forgot those traditions and acting luxurious. How much do you have never matters, if you have never followed our traditions even though they are useful to us. 

Really it's shameful. Because these traditions are introduced for our healthy life, still we are not following those.

I follow more than half of the above. Comment down below, how many of you follow the mentioned traditions and add some other if not mentioned in the comment box :)
