Why do these Ignorant people break coconuts on their heads?
The breaking coconut on the head has been around for a long time and it involves smashing of a coconut on the head of a devotee in a plea to the gods for good health and success. In a chosen place preferably in a temple, devotees gather around the Pujari (mostly non-Brahmin priests) who smashes a coconut on their skull. Most of the people get up and walk out as if nothing has happened. Some people rub their heads after this strange event. This ritual is performed as a sort of thanksgiving to the deity after their wish has been granted by the deity. Source: navrangindia.blogspot.com
Why do Hindu’s use Coconuts to Worship?
Every year, thousands of devotees travel to a remote village in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu to put themselves through a gruesome ritual that they hope will bring them good health and success. Believe it or not, men, women and even children willingly permit priests to smash hard coconuts on their skulls!
Breaking coconuts on a sacred stone as an offering to the deity is a common practice in South Indian temples. But breaking them on one’s own head is quite rare, and viewed as an extreme display of devotion. Several devotees squat on the floor in a line, waiting patiently as the temple priests approach with a sack of coconuts. One priest holds the heads firmly, while the other one brings down the coconuts without hesitation. The whole process is completed in a matter of minutes. Source: Oddity Central
Note that they break them on a “Sacred Stone” as an offering! So is the head of the individual now “Sacred” because they endured the breaking of a hard coconut? Are they now some how closer to god or are they now gods themselves?
It sure is one of the most interesting symbolism created. The coconut resembles a lot like human head if you notice closely. While the coir signifies human hair, the inside part which is the hard nut resembles our skull. The water inside the coconut is considered as the blood and the white kernel is the metal space inside the skull. Though the concept is freaky and scary, the fruit sure has bestowed as a savior for human life playing a huge importance in ritual and spiritual belief.
A Hindu ritual always has the presence of coconut by breaking the fruit on the ground. It is considered very auspicious and the Puja rituals don’t begin without a coconut. There are a number of reasons why coconut plays an important role. Coconut in Sanskrit means ‘Sriphala’ which is the symbol of almighty. Coconuts come in picture into many occasions good or bad for that matter – Weddings, new constructions, festivals, homas. Since the fruit is considered auspicious, it is seen almost in all the Hindu temples so that devotees can offer it to the God.
Did you know that the three round circles on the coconut is considered as Lord Shiva’s own eyes? That is why coconut is considered important for every ritual and is kept in a pot of rice and mango leaves before starting a Pooja. It is said that by breaking the coconut, the wishes of the person who is doing it will be fulfilled. Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are the three lords who are always there where coconuts are present. The belief is that, if a coconut is kept in the pooja, the three lords will come and bless the family. Many a times, some coconuts are not broken or given as Prasad so that the three deities are in the house till it is broken. Source: Hergamut India
If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!
The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.
The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!
Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
