La india un país fascinante, su cultura, paisajes, creencias, modo de vestir, toda su cultura es enterante y su modo de vida igual, el cual, esta relacionado con su religión, este último punto es interesante, he visto algunos programas de televisión en relación a este país, recuerdo que hablaron de un templo dedicado a los monos y no recuerdo si ese mismo también hicieron referencia a un templo dedicado a otro animal que no es muy bien visto en otras latitudes, “las ratas”, ese el tema que tocare en esta publicación, la oportunidad de hablar de este singular lugar se lo debo a un nuevo espacio de curaciones de nombre @contra-reloj y nos propone tres temas interesantes para su primera entrega, por acá les comparto el enlace de la publicación con los detalles, pero corre porque es por tiempo limitado.
India is a fascinating country, its culture, landscapes, beliefs, way of dressing, all its culture is fascinating and its way of life the same, which is related to its religion, this last point is interesting, I have seen some television programs in relation to this country, I remember that they talked about a temple dedicated to monkeys and I do not remember if that same one also made reference to a temple dedicated to another animal that is not very well seen in other latitudes, "the rats", that the topic that I will touch in this publication, the opportunity to talk about this singular place I owe it to a new space of cures of name @contra-reloj and it proposes us three interesting topics for its first delivery, here I share the link to the publication with the details, but run because it is for a limited time.
Templo Karni Mata/Karni Mata Temple
India is the only place in the world that has a temple where rats are worshiped and protected, it is said that in this curious place live between 20,000 and 25,000 of these animals and are fed with milk, fruits, vegetables, in short they are the queens, they have even taken security measures to prevent birds of prey attack them.
Now, what is the reason for the worship of Hindus for these animals, well here I share the textual extract of a web article that explains why these animals are worshiped in India:
La leyenda cuenta que Karni Mata pidió al dios de la muerte Yama que devolviera la vida a un hijo suyo que había muerto ahogado, pero obtuvo una respuesta negativa.
La erudita, que era a su vez la encarnación de una deidad hindú, decidió entonces reencarnar en ratas a todos sus descendientes, para privar a Yama de almas humanas.
Legend has it that Karni Mata asked the god of death Yama to bring back to life a son of hers who had drowned, but got a negative answer.
The scholar, who was herself the incarnation of a Hindu deity, then decided to reincarnate all her descendants into rats, to deprive Yama of human souls.
So as she is a deity, Hindus worship and protect these animals, so visitors or pilgrims who go to the Temple must enter without footwear and some look forward to being grazed by one of them, besides wishing to observe some white as it is believed that seeing one will bring luck.
Now, many articles highlight the beauty of the place, its 600 years old and was built by Maharaja Ganga Singh in honor of the Hindu goddess Durga. The temple is located in the city of Deshnok, 30 kms south of Bikaner.
Finally, I must express that I chose this theme, because as many know I love animals and I think they all deserve to live, I do not agree to poison these animals or use methods of prolonged suffering to kill them, it must be terrible to die poisoned and / or slowly with agony, nature has its ways to control, in the case of rodents there are cats, birds of prey, snakes, among others, so this is the only place in the world where rats can live peacefully, so I retire desenado that my publication has pleased you and if I have succeeded please you can express it in the comments box.
