It is generally not advised to go to temple during periods due to rituals, as there are restrictions imposed on religious activities. For example, in Hinduism, women who are on their period are not allowed to enter the temple, as it is considered inauspicious.
It is also believed to violate the purity of the temple. Additionally, during menses, the body is in an unclean state that is not considered “fit” to enter a temple. The rituals involved in certain religious activities also require physical purity, which cannot be achieved during a period.
While some traditions may allow women to participate in certain festivals after menstrual purification, women should still take extra precaution when entering the temple.
On which day of period we can go to temple?
The answer to this question depends on a variety of factors including one’s religion, culture, and practices. For those who practice Hinduism, the day of going to temple can vary depending on geographical region and local customs.
For example, on the south Asian subcontinent, Tuesdays and Fridays are widely considered to be auspicious days for temple visits. In some regions, Saturday and Sunday are considered to be more auspicious days for visiting temples than any other day of the week.
Those who practice Buddhism may visit temples on any day of the week since Buddhism does not have a specific day for worshiping. However, Buddhists may choose to visit temples on certain occasions such as visits to the Three Jewels, which are the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha.
Similarly, Muslims may visit mosques (temples) on any day however, Fridays are generally considered to be the main day for congregational prayer. Since mosques are considered to be places of gathering and worship, Fridays are the most important day in a week for this purpose.
The answer to this question therefore depends on an individual’s religious practices and beliefs. Those who practice different religions may have different days and practices related to visiting temples.
What does Bhagavad Gita say about menstruation?
The Bhagavad Gita does not specifically mention menstruation; however, the text does provide us with some general guidance related to the topic. The Bhagavad Gita teaches that our bodies should be respected and treated with responsibility.
It also emphasizes the importance of purity, which includes physical, mental, and spiritual cleanliness.
Within this context, menstruation can be understood as a natural, yet sacred, process that is necessary for a woman’s health and wellbeing. The text encourages us to refrain from engaging in physical activities during this time and to keep away from things that may contaminate our bodies, such as impure food or water.
Additionally, the text suggests that women refrain from participating in activities that require physical exertion, such as climbing and swimming.
The Bhagavad Gita also prioritizes a woman’s spiritual wellbeing, suggesting that during the menstrual cycle she should focus on her own inner spiritual journey and self-care. It is important that a woman take time for herself, to nourish her body and soul, to reflect and practice mindfulness.
Ultimately, the text states that taking time for oneself is essential for one’s health and wellbeing, and that this is especially important during the time of menstruation.
Can we go temple if wife is in periods?
No, it is not advisable for a woman to go to a temple or any other place of worship during her menstruation. Traditionally it is seen as impure and is not considered as an auspicious time.

During the festivals and special occasions, she can offer prayers from home. Many temples and religious places have special arrangements where she can get her prayers done from home.
Why are periods considered impure?
In many religions and cultures, periods are regarded as unclean or impure. This is because, from a purely physical perspective, menstruation is viewed with a sense of disgust, discomfort, and taboo. This is due to its association with the female body and its reproductive capabilities.
It has been seen as a symbol of sin or shame in many cultures, and therefore, related activities such as menstruating, menstrual hygiene and the menstrual taboos that come along with it, are seen as impure.
In some societies, women on their period are not allowed to enter a temple or participate in certain rituals or ceremonies. Since menstruation involves discharging of blood, which is considered impure in some cultures, it is considered impure and in need of cleansing.
