Sir, here I would like to get my following doubt clarified by you. Certain temples in South India have practice of allowing only Hindus inside the temple premises. Certain other temples allows only brahmins inside the temple premises. Sir, I would like to know as to why this practice is being followed. Since God is the creator of each and every living being why are a few not allowed to have a glimpse of their own creator. In Guruvayoor they had even stopped the well known singer KJ Yesudas from entering the temple premises. Whereas it is a world known fact that Yesudas is such a singer who has released numerous albums on Ayappan, Guruvayoor, etc. and his cassettes and CDs are also being played by the temple authority. When Temple authorities can play the song sung by him why to prohibit him from entering the temple. Sir, when god does not see caste or creed while creating a person why should we stop the person just because of caste or creed. Sir, I shall be grateful if you could clear the doubt by providing me reply to my questions.

It was purely for the sake of maintaining hygenic conditions, in those days they did not allow the non-brahmin personnels inside the temples; Because they were not keeping themselves clean. But in todays environment, they do keep & maintain most hygenic conditions, they should never be stopped from entering the temple. Practically, Veda never discriminates anyone from worshipping. It is the half baked pundits and prohits who could not understand what civilization is! As far the temples which stops entry to others, they are still living in the stone age. The religious fanatics are very well present in every caste & community. That much one can be sure of. To be frank with you, A Brahmin can NEVER consider himself as superior to others, only just because he was born in the community. Even a downtrodden or a lower caste person can far more equal to a Brahmin, if he keeps himself to the human cause. The phrase "Brahmmana Bahu Jana Priya" is now twisted to shame and wrong meaning given as "Bhojana priya". One can understand the human values and ethics that were prevailing during vedic era.
