8.Five metal bell :Bells are used in most of the religion in different forms.Due to its peculiar form it creat the sound waves with sacred symmetric and ever expanding form ,so that the cosmic cleansing of the space happens automatically.Rather when sound energy holds the void then voids get transformed in to spaces; which is the purpose of the divine vaastu tantra.Being of five metals again it is connected to the five different planets and elements too.In Borobudur ,there are 72 Buddha-Murtis placed in the stone bell form ,suggesting the importance of the bell and the form too.It creates the Nada-Rhythm which is the confluence of the Shiva and the Shakti ;as explained elsewhere in this book.When the waves of symmetry and sacred geometry are expanding in the surroundings,it automatically welcomes the deities and removes the vibrations of the Vikshep devta.
Cleansing of the space after each eight days can be done with start of the ringing of the bells in a clockwise path;which is a ritual in some Buddhist sects too.
In Christianity -Sufism the divine message is whirled in the surroundings by use of huge bells .In Nasik we find a huge bell named by Naro-Shankar-Ghanta.
Alternate contracting and expanding nature of these three dimensional sound waves acts as a powerful media to eradicate the negativity.
It's rhythm makes automatic inward turning of the mind and connects to the subtle media like sound-wind-ether ;with breaking the cage of the lower earthly connections of the sensuous pleasures.Mind gains the orbit of the forth and fifth dimension.
