Idolatry refers to the worship of an idol, statue or a figurine. The practice of worshipping idols in Indian culture runs way back in history. Gradually idols became more than just a form of worship and deeply set its roots into arts and culture. Idol making became a prominent culture and way of representing a place and its tradition. Today we have various styles of art and idols. Many of them are traditions skills carried forward by generations of artists.
The idea of worshipping idols has often been sought as a belief in ‘pseudo-god’ and so on. However to understand and grasp the entire ideology behind idol worship, one must indulge themselves in the deep science behind it. As we all are aware idols are made with various different types of stones, wood and materials and according to science each atom holds its own energy. This can be compared to one of a magnet. For say we have a magnet and we know there is something about its presence that changes the surrounding. High power electricity can be generated by mere magnets. This shows the power that an atom contains and each particle of the solar system contains its own energy.
When we pick a stone or wood and craft it into something, it has the capacity to have an energy of its own. By drawing our energy into it and worshipping it we combine it with our energy and vibrations. Scientifically these vibrations are absorbed by the idol and they in turn give out vibrations of certain frequency. The vibrations given out by these idols are powerful and hold a lot of intensity. Often people use these vibrations while praying and meditation. Various materials, stones and wood have different frequencies and divine energy. Added to this is that the physical manifestation of something helps people focus on it more and gives more proof to its existence. However it must not be confused that god is the idol instead it is just a way and display of his presence of the deity. Each idol holds strong meaning and significance.
