When we celebrate an event at home, we invite our friends and family to share the joy. Sometimes we may want it open for all, but we are limited in resources. However, a temple hosts events that are open to all. Everyone gets the darsan, the divine theertham and prasadam because all are equal in the eyes of God. More importantly, the events in temple are performed to show our gratitude to the Supreme power who descended for all our benefit.
