It is a respectful practice being observed; bowing to religious individuals to seek their blessings without even knowing anything at all of the concerned person being approached?
Remember that your Parents blessings; your Guru’s (spiritual master’s) and God’s blessings as well as good wishes are always there with you, so why go about bowing here, there and everywhere? Remember and carefully realize that you are abundantly blessed, there is the cosmic grace and gracious wisdom always there with you, so do not despair or feel empty or pretend or fall for any sweet or melodious words, consciously awaken, be alert, be diligent, be prudent, be tenacious, be responsible, be wise and be in an utmost alert and safeguard mode of the true essence of your being at all given moments attentively.
The head is the strategic sacred part of a human being where the crown chakra (life force energy) also called in Sanskrit as the Sahasrara (the thousand petaled lotus) is situated. This is where the pineal gland is and is supposed to derive the cosmic energy whose divine essence sustains the gracefulness of our being.
Now when some unknown mendicant/tantrik happens to touch your head, first of all you do not have any clue who that person after all is? Then you ignorantly/negligently bow to that individual and seek their blessings innocently, little knowing or realizing that by the one touch of your head, that person could possibly attain/cunningly/mystically without your awareness or consent – try to through their devious powers attract/snatch away the graceful energy that you so amazingly possess for themselves? But why please>? Why allow someone, somewhere to take command of your graceful divine essence and snatch away what legitimately has been ordained to you, for you to develop and expand your consciousness please?
That is absolutely unfair, since the cosmic grace is legitimately entitled to you and you alone and no one else ever has any authority to ever claim, acclaim or proclaim any authority over that sacredness of your being. So, please be aware that you are infinitely and abundantly blessed already and do not need to in ignorance, negligence or desperation ever bow down to some unknown tantriks/mendicants and let them ever touch your head, for your head is extremely sacred and truly deserves its pure sanctity.
Now if someone has already touched, let it be and if someone you know very well and respectfully regard as your near and dear and respectful spiritual guide, then it is different; but never for anyone else, who just all of a sudden appears and then you just want to give away enormous importance, consent or authority/regard to.
These are small matters and may appear insignificant but no one wants to go through the experience of mysteriously undergoing any untoward experiences or complexities, so please be aware, be precautious, be vigilant, be wise and truly safeguard the true divine essence of your being graciously, be well, take care and God bless.
