Temple Bell

An exotic greeting card for every day featuring a man ringing a temple bell in the   in Rajasthan, India.

The man ringing the temple bell here is in the courtyard of the Jagdith Tample in Udaipur in Rajasthan.

It is a Hindu temple devoted to the god Vishnu. The approach is up steep steps and once through the gateway, there is intricately-carved stonework all around.

During the temple service two men ring bells constantly. And the ringing goes on and on without stop and it is very loud; so loud that the very stones and the air hum and vibrate with the sound.

Temple Bell Jagdith Temple Udaipur

The Jagdith temple is in Udaipur, Rajasthan is a renowned Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple holds cultural and religious significance, and one of its notable features is the presence of a large bell that is rung by devotees.

Bell ringing is a common devotional practice in Hindu temples. It is believed to be a way of invoking the divine presence and seeking blessings from the deity. The act of ringing the bell is seen as a form of communication with the divine.

The ringing of the bell upon entering a temple signifies the arrival of a devotee. It serves as a way of announcing one’s presence to the deity and seeking permission to enter the sacred space. It is a symbolic gesture of respect and reverence.

Those put off by the bell may be signalling that they do not feel qualified to enter because of their internal qualities. Inverting that, they are perhaps the very ones with the most qualification to enter.

Devotees believe the sound of the bell awakens the deity and draws their attention. It is said that the vibrations produced by the bell resonates with the cosmic energy, and creates a positive and spiritual atmosphere.

The sound of the bell helps to create a meditative focus within the temple, eliminating distractions. The rhythmic ringing helps individuals enter a state of concentration and spiritual awareness.
