Why do we do Shashtanga Namaskara near Kodimaram/Flag Pole/Dwajastamaba ? I often watched people also doing Namaskaram near Garbha Gruha (inner sanctorum)? Please clarify me which one is the right way and procedure to do Namaskaram.
@Gayatri--You have to do the namaskaram near the dwajasthamba or kodimaram only. That too before seeing God you have to do this -- at the entry point. Because the Lord is supreme of the entire world and he sees thru dwajasthamba. You should not do namaskaram near sanctum sanctorum as this is garbhagriha which is surrounded by mantra avahanams and on the peeta the Lord stand and gives blessings to the devotees. He is surrounded by the prathispanam of mantras.
