The Nearest Branch

I don’t understand why people go all the way to Shreenathji pr Palitana to pray. There is a temple at the end of every street nowadays. Indians invest more in temples than in medicine or education. After all, if you fall ill, before going to the doctor you have to remove the nazar and instead of studying for an exam we Indians choose to pray.
Do you go to McDonald’sto the one that’s in Pune if you have a branch in Andheri? No, you wouldn’t. Because it’s the same damn thing. I’m not asking you to get it home delivered. I’m just asking you to go to the nearest branch.
The same way, if you want to go to the temple then go to the nearest one or at least go to the one that’s in the same city if you like the ambience of a particular one. But to travel all the way there to just get one Darshan doesn’t seem a tad bit ridiculous to you?

    We want quick salvation, and believe going to those holy places will erase the sins!
