The Spiritual Journey of a Raja Yogi: Why They Do Not Visit Temples

Temples are considered to be sacred places where people go to seek blessings, solace, and peace of mind. Some people visit temples on special occasions such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries, or to seek divine intervention to overcome their problems. The serene ambiance, the fragrance of incense sticks, the sound of bells and chants, all create a spiritual environment that helps to charge one's soul.


However, there are some individuals who do not visit temples, especially Raja Yogis. Raja Yogis follow a spiritual path of yoga that emphasizes self-realization and introspection. They believe that the ultimate goal of life is to realize the self and connect with the Paramathma or the Supreme Soul. The practice of Manmanabhava, which means to constantly remember God with the awareness that we are a soul, which helps Raja Yogis to charge their soul and burn their sins.





Raja Yogi's understand that God is not present everywhere, including within themselves. They realize that the true temple of God is Shantidham, the house of all souls or the abode of peace. Therefore, they do not feel the need to visit a physical temple to connect with God. Instead, they focus on practicing self-awareness, meditation, and self-realization to attain spiritual fulfillment.


While some people may find solace and peace by visiting temples, Raja Yogis believe that true peace and harmony can only be attained by looking inward and realizing the true nature of the self. Their spiritual journey is a personal one, and they do not rely on external factors or practices to attain spiritual growth even though there is no harm in going to the temple.
