Amazing Scientific Reasons Behind Hindu Traditions

We all have grown up with some or the other superstition passed on from one generation to the other. Ever wondered there could be a reason or a story behind these superstitions? Well, all these famous beliefs do have a scientific explanation read on to find out.

 

Throwing Coins Into A River


The reason given for this act is that it brings Good Luck. However, scientifically, in the ancient times, most of the currency used was made of copper. Copper is a vital metal very useful to the human body. Throwing coins in the river was one way our fore-fathers ensured we intake sufficient copper as part of the water as rivers were the only source of drinking water. Making it a custom ensured that all of us follow the practice.




Joining Both Palms Together To Greet


The reason behind this tradition is that greeting by joining both the palms means respect. However, scientifically, joining both hands ensures joining the tips of all the fingers together; which are denoted to the pressure points of eyes, ears, and mind. Pressing them together is said to activate the pressure points which helps us remember that person for a long time. And, no germs since we don’t make any physical contact!




Why Do Indian Women Wear Toe Ring


Wearing toe rings is not just the significance of married women but there is science behind it. Normally toe rings are worn on the second toe. A particular nerve from the second toe connects the uterus and passes to heart. Wearing toe ring on this finger strengthens the uterus. It will keep it healthy by regulating the blood flow to it and menstrual cycle will be regularized. As Silver is a good conductor, it also absorbs polar energies from the earth and passes it to the body.
 


Why You Should Not To Sleep With Your Head Towards North


The human body acts as a magnet with the head as its North Pole. If the head points north while sleeping, the North Poles of the body and Earth will repel each other, affecting the blood circulation and causing disturbed sleep and stress. South, East & West are acceptable.






Why Do We Worship Peepal Tree


Our ancestors knew that ‘Peepal’ is one of the very few trees {or probably the only tree} which produces oxygen even at night. So in order to save this tree because of its unique property they related it to God/religion.


 



Why We Should Not Cut Our Nails At Night


During those days, there was no electricity. Nights of those days were therefore much darker than now. Cutting nails during night lets the nail pieces fall hither and thither making it difficult to collect and dispose them.Left over nail pieces are a threat to hygiene and might cause some allergic reactions when unknowingly mixed with foods and eatables.
