The Purpose Of Routine Ritual
To counteract the effects of misplaced energy of body, speech and mind during daily activities when our actions are self centred, we engage in routine prayers, pujas and meditation. This routine ritual calms the body, inspires speech and stills the mind.
The purpose of routine ritual is to break down the habitual pattern of self admiration which is the cause of confusion, leading us down the path of narcissism without us even noticing.
Routine ritual is a purification, a healing activity. It releases stress and rebalances the system (however, if ritual is not understood properly, it can be the cause of stress and anxiety).
After a session, we notice that we are calmer, creating the merit of good karma. Calmer karma is good wealth! 😉 Because we feel an abundance, we can be generous towards others. This is goodness ‘going viral’.
Narcissism: Excessive interest and admiration of oneself and one’s physical appearance. Extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one’s own talents and a craving for admiration. Self-centred and lacking empathy towards others. Cannot stop wanting to manipulate situations.
This is the purpose of simple, routine ritual
to counteract wrong doing.
