A Temple goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to Temple.
"I've gone for 50 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 15,000 days of Aarti & performed Puja. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the Pujaris are wasting theirs by doing Aarti Puja."
This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column. ; Much to the delight of the editor, it went on for week until someone wrote this clincher:
"I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals.
But I do know this... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.
Likewise, if I had not gone to Temple for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" !
