It is mentioned in the Shastras that one should always wear a pavitra / fresh (clean and washed) cloth while doing pooja everyday. And 'Dhoti' is the purest forms of cloth. Dhoti is the recommended cloth while doing puja, yajna, attending religious ceremonies. It is made to be washed everyday and easily dried up to wear every next day. For the word itself means 'Dho' (wash) + 'ti' (wear fresh next day).
When men stand with their feet together after wearing a dhoti, a shape synonymous to the alphabet ‘W’ is formed in the downward direction of the dhoti. Through its centre point the inherent energy in the dhoti is emitted continuously in the upward direction. Hence, it is perceived subtly that just as Sri Lakshmi stands in the lotus, similarly the person is standing in the sheath of the inherent energy emitted by the dhoti. This upward the inherent energy in the dhoti is transmitted towards the person wearing the dhoti like the plume of smoke arising after putting Dhoop (Black incense) on the live coals during puja and a protective sheath is formed around him. This energy spreads in the body of the person. The presence of negative energies is also reduced. The white colour of the dhoti drives back the attacks of the negative energies from the outer atmosphere.

For,centuries,many communities across India and many other parts of the world specially originating from the Great Sanatan Dharm have been wearing 'Dhoti'.There are different ways of wearing a dhoti depicting different cast,creed or communities in India, like a pandit has one way of wearing a dhoti,a farmer wears it in a different manner and a south Indian community wears it differently altogether and so on.
But why is it that it holds importance in comparison to other clothes and still worn by all major Gurus and Pandits and insisted there upon by them for all common to wear at least while performing pooja?
Dhoti bears a great importance in the Sanatan Dharm for one main reason to which the current Guru of the famous Dera Baba Rudrashram in Himachal Pradesh, Shri Shri 1008 Baba Sugriva Nand Ji Maharaj, the gyata/ knower of all Vedas and Shastras said that,"It is mentioned in the Shastras that one should always wear a pavitra/ fresh (clean and washed) cloth while doing Pooja everyday.And 'Dhoti' is the purest forms of cloth. It can be and is made to be washed everyday and easily dried up to wear every next day.For the word itself means similar to washed it Dhoti or'Dho'+'Ti' a cloth that one can 'Dho'(a hindi/sanskrit word meaning wash) everyday and wear a-fresh every next day."
There are other reasons to believe by many others which are similar to the same that it is one of the simplest of clothes without any stitching in it and some think a proper Dhoti wearing is the one where there is no knot tied while wearing.
Deriving one possible spiritual explanation out of the same is that this type of cloth,i.e. dhoti, could be THAT simplest forms of cloth which is made to cover the body in the most simplest forms and which is its real purpose or to say which fulfills the ‘Need’ for what it is made mainly FOR.Where as to proceed further there on, one crosses the fine line in between the ‘Need’ and ‘Greed’ where the skillful designing, stitching and decoration like embroideries could take you away from the path of eternal bliss,which eventually has no end.
