Hindus, Christians and Buddhists, all use incense sticks while worshiping. Burning incense sticks is an essential part of our prayer.
But is it only aroma?
No, it has hidden harmful effects which are equally hazardous as Cigarette smoke.
Please excuse me if this hurts your sentiments.
I am a believer in God and I have no bad intentions against the people who follow this ritual. All I wish is to bring awareness.
People light up these sticks without knowing the underlying fact. Moreover, when current pollution figures are alarming, its our individual responsibility to cut out any source of pollution.
Smoke in the name of devotion is also called Pollution.
I wish I could tell these people how much this devotional smoke irritates my nose and mind.
I wish I could tell them that this is also pollution which is equally harmful for the lungs as Cigarette smoke with no ventilation around.
Why is it so difficult for us to bring the change which is good for everyone. Why we blindly follow something.
“To follow by faith alone is to follow blindly” ~ Benjamin Franklin
What can we do instead-
- Light up an oil/ghee lamp.
- Use Aromatherapy diffuser which emits a mist of water and essential oils.
Kindly help me in spreading this message around and create awareness.
