Pratishtha means consecration.The most common form of consecration is by using mantras, rituals and other kinds of processes.
If you consecrate a form through mantras, it needs constant maintenance.
Praṇa Pratishtha refers to the rite or ceremony by which a murti (vessel for the spirit of god) is consecrated in a Hindu temple, wherein hymns and mantra are recited to invite the deity to be resident guest, and the murti’s eye is opened for the first time.
Practiced in the temples of Hinduism and Jainism, the ritual is considered to infuse life into the Hindu temple, and bring to it the numinous presence of divinity and spirituality.A form is consecrated through life energies, not with mantras or rituals.
Once it is established, it is forever and needs no maintenance.Lets Watch Full Video to know More About Prana Prathista and Vayu prathishtha.#PranaPrathishtha #VayuPrathishtha #Devotional.
