REASONS FOR DANCING IN THE TEMPLES OUT OF PIOUSNESS:
Psychiatrists view that these incidents happen due to mental problems such as ‘nervousness’, ‘depression’ and ‘obsession’. These feelings instigate them to behave differently, without their knowledge. The special mood known as ‘autohypnosis’ is revealed in the incident of dancing in the temples. Thus they believe that they are the special persons having more piousness and Gods are speaking to them only. Many times the special attention and affection given to them stand as a remedy for their mental disorders. Scientifically, this is considered as a stage of ecstasy.
