When it comes to praying, one important aspect that we have to keep in mind that if we are praying sitting on the ground facing the temple, then the temple has to be atleast 12 inches above the ground. On the other hand, if we are praying while standing then the placement of the temple should be atleast 4 feets above the ground bringing the temple to the chest level which is the Nabhi chakra or the 3rd eye chakra level.
Hierarchy of the gods in the temple is very important,that is, KUL DEVTA – KUL DEVI should get first position and should be in the front and then the rest of the gods. Try keeping less gods in the temple and also it is suggested to have photos and not murtis/idols. That too, photos shouldn’t be too big. Never keep photos of Gurus in the Mandir (Temple) and the Never keep the photos of the gurus who are still alive. Never keep God photos anywhere else in the entire house, they have a place and that is the Mandir (Temple), so it is recommended to not have photos of any Gods in the house other than the temple.
It is important that the temple is all enlighten. Diyas and dhoop should be lit outside the temple. Never keep God Photos or Murtis in the temple which you recieved in gifts.
If you got any tabiz, dhora , dhaga from any temple or any holy placec, you shouldn’t keep it in your hand tied up for long as the energy doesn’t stay for long and it also might get negatively energized.
