Description: This article provides information about the rangoli which attracts the Deity Datta principle.
A rangoli is drawn during a festival, pūjā, or other celebrations. If the design of the rangoli and the colours used in it are in accordance with that Deity; then the respective Deity principle gets attracted to the rangoli and emanates in the surroundings. As a result everyone derives its spiritual benefits.
Depending on our bhāv (spiritual emotion) the rangoli can attract as much as 20-30% of the Deity principle. If a rangoli is filled with sāttvik colours then Deity principle has to use minimum energy to come to the place where rangoli has been drawn.
Importance of bhav when drawing rangoli
- If an individual has bhav then the maximum amount of Deity principle is attracted to the rangoli which is 30%.
- It is important to fill the rangoli with colours so that the Deity principle can get attracted to it. The Deity principle is attracted to the rangoli in proportion with the bhav of the individual who is drawing the rangoli especially if bhav is less than 60% However if the bhav is more than 80%, any Deity principle can get attracted to any design of the rangoli.
