Worlds only Religion which is based on Science
Some of our traditions about which science says
No Marriage in Same Gotra
In a program related to diseases of Discovery Channel, a scientist said that the only cure for not having a genetic disease is ‘Separation of Genes’. That is, one should not marry among his closest relatives because genes are not separated (split) among close relatives and there is a 100% chance of having genes linked diseases like hemophilia, color blindness and albonism. It is a matter of pleasant surprise that in Sanatan Hinduism thousands of years ago ‘Genes’ and ‘DNA’ were written about? There are seven gotras in Hindu tradition. People of the same gotra cannot marry among themselves, so that the genes remain separate. That scientist said that today the whole world will have to believe that Sanatan Hinduism is the only religion in the world which is based on science.
Greeting with Folded Hands
When meeting someone, they say Namaste or Namaskar with folded hands.
Scientific Reasoning- When the tops of all the fingers come in contact with each other and there is pressure on them. Due to acupressure, it has a direct effect on our eyes, ears and mind, so that we can remember the person in front for a long time. The second argument is that if you do Namaste instead of shaking hands (Western civilization), then the germs of the body of the other person cannot reach you. Even if the person in front has swine flu, that virus will not reach you.
Havan or #Yagna
Yagya or Havan is performed during any ritual.
Scientific reasoning- When the mixture of natural elements in the Havan material, and the mixture of camphor, sesame, sugar, etc., is burnt, when smoke rises, it kills the germs in every corner of the house. Insects run away.
Tradition of Ear Piercing
There is a tradition of piercing ears in almost all religions in India.

Kumkum on Four Head/ Tilak
Women and men apply kumkum or tilak on the forehead.
Scientific reason: A vein goes from the middle of the eyes to the forehead. By applying kumkum or tilak, the energy of that place remains intact. While applying tilak on the forehead, when pressure is applied with the thumb or finger, then the blood-circulating muscles of the skin of the face get activated. Due to this, blood reaches the cells of the face well.
Taking Meals by Sitting on Ground
According to Indian culture, eating food while sitting on the ground is a good thing.
Scientific Fact: Sitting with a cross is a type of yoga posture. By sitting in this position, the mind remains calm and if the mind is calm while eating, then the digestion process remains good. As soon as sitting in this state, a signal from the brain itself reaches the stomach that it should be ready for food.

The Meal begins with a spicy and ends with a sweet
Whenever there is any religious or family ritual, the food starts with spicy and ends with sweet.
Scientific reasoning: By eating spicy food, the digestive elements and acids become active inside our stomach. Due to this the digestive system works properly. Lastly, by eating sweets, the intensity of the acid decreases. It does not cause burning in the stomach.
Worshiping a Banyan Treee

Sleeping with Head Towards North
If someone sleeps with his feet towards the north, then people say that bad dreams will come, the shadow of ghosts will come etc.

Worship of Basil Plant
Worshiping Tulsi brings prosperity in the house. Happiness and peace remain.
Scientific Argument: Tulsi strengthens the immune system. If there is a Tulsi plant in the house, then the leaves will also be used, which cures diseases.
