What is PADUKA (WOODEN CLOGS) and why do Sanyasis wear only wooden clogs?
Wooden clogs worn by Sanyasis shield the
spiritual power from being pulled by the magnetic and gravitational forces of the earth. This is also the reason why a wooden plank is recommended to sit on while doing Pooja or performing japa.
