Why do Hindus blow the conch ?

Here’s the science involved in blowing the conch

In the Hindu religion, blowing conch shells on every auspicious work is considered very sacred and auspicious. Along with this, it also has many scientific benefits, which are easily obtained by the person who blows the conch. If the day is started with the sound of a conch shell, then the day goes very well.

Atharvaveda says:

(1) शंखेन हत्वा रक्षांसि अथर्ववेद – conch shell destroys demons

Yajur-Veda says:

(2) अवरस्पराय शंखध्वम् यजुर्वेद–   A conch is blown during wars and battles to intimidate the enemy. One “who blows the conch at the time of worship has all his sins destroyed, and he enjoys happiness with  Bhagwan Vishnu.

All these religious beliefs have a scientific basis. Scientists believe that the rays of the sun impede the propagation of sound.
