Punyaha Vachanam

Cleanliness is considered as an important characteristic of religious life. Cleanliness is both external and internal. Seeing God (Darsanam), singing His praise, sprinkling the Holy Water (Prokshana) after worship (Punyaha Vachanam) and drinking the holy water are all said to clean the devotee both externally and internally.
