The bell makes an enlightening and rich sound which incorporates 'Aum' in it. 'Aum' is the basis of all sounds or notes. A bell is rung with the desire indicating the invocation of divinity, so that virtuous and noble forces enter (home and heart) and the demonic and evil forces from within, depart.
Nandi, bull is the vahana (vehicle) of Lord Shiva. Every Shaivite temple has the figure of a white, humped bull reclining on a raised platform and facing the entrance door of the shrine so that, according to tradition, he may perpetually gaze on the lord in his symbolic form, the lingam. Nandi is considered to be one of Shiva’s chief attendants and occasionally is depicted in sculpture as a bull-faced dwarf figure.
