Since these customs and rituals have the backing of belief and faith they have lived on for thousands of years. The ancient prophets related these customs to religion and god as it is easier for people to follow them. The customs of all religions in the world are based on some real science behind it and this article is an endeavor to spread this knowledge.

Ringing the bell in Temples, Churches/ Azaan: The custom of ringing the bells before entering the worship place is common in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism and very similar ringing of church bells to commence prayer. The Islamic practice of Azaan is also very similar to this. The science behind it using a standard sound wave to clear out the mind before prayer. The sound of bells and Azaan are all sounds which echo and activates the seven chakras in our body and empties our mind of thought. This leads to some moments of forced mediation which is very beneficial for the mind and body. The peace we all get after prayer is due to this religious ritual.

3.The ritual of fasting in religions – Hindus fast during various festivals, Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan and Christians during Christmas and Easter and a feast follows the fast. The food we eat contains various ingredients which are toxic for the body. On regular days when we continue eating these toxins accumulate in our body. Fasting helps the body to cleanse the body of these toxins. Modern medical science also accepts now that fast is very good for the digestive system and the whole body.

4.Baptism and Mundan Sanskar – Baptism and Mundan Sanskar where the head is tonsured is common in Hinduism and Christianity. In Muslims the head is tonsured when one goes on Hajj the ultimate pilgrimage of Islam. Shaving of head in all these customs is a great way to improve hair-quality on the head.
