Why Panchaloha Idols ?

Why Panchaloha Idols ?

India is a country that is known for its rich Hindu Culture and Tradition. There are hundreds of mesmerizing Hindu temples across the country in different designs, shapes, locations; but not all temples are built as described in Vedic literature. Temples are found deliberately at a place where the positive energy is available abundantly from the magnetic and electric wave conveyances of north/south post push.

Panchaloha (Sanskrit: पञ्चलोह;), also called Pañcadhātu (five metals) is a term for traditional five-metal alloys of sacred significance, used for making Hindu temple murti and jewelry.

The composition is laid down in the Shilpa shastras, a collection of ancient texts that describe arts, crafts, and their design rules, principles, and standards. Panchaloha is traditionally described as an alloy of Mercury (Hg) silver(Ag), copper(Cu), zinc(Zn), and iron(Fe) as the major constituents. Also, in some cases, tin (Sn) or lead (Pb) is used instead of zinc. It is widely believed that wearing jewelry made of such an alloy brings balance in life, self-confidence, good health, fortune, prosperity, and peace of mind.

Humans throughout history have created a space for the divine. The entire art of building temples is not just a mere art; it is a science. Every single facet of it - from the size of the idol to the directions and the sanctum- yes! Temple architecture is a highly developed science.

The idol made with Panchaloha absorbs all the energy from the bell sound, Camphor heat, and vibrates the positive energy within the chamber for a certain duration of time. When you do the circumambulation at this point in time, you tend to absorb all these positive vibrations once your five senses are activated.
