Why is Pradakshina /Parikrama done only in a clockwise manner ?

According to the Rig Veda verses Rig: 2.42.3 and 2.43.1 –" Pra as an adjectiv means very much. Pra is a prefix to verbs which means onward or forward. Dakshina literally means south.
A circle cannot be drawn without a center point. Similarly, we wouldn’t have existed in absence of the Supreme. Therefore, in order to honor, acknowledge and show gratitude to the Supreme, we perform the pradakshina.
This involves, taking a walk around the Garbha griha, which is the innermost chamber of the temple, where the deity idol is placed. The Veda suggests that one’s right side must face the deity while taking the in the clockwise direction also known as Dakshinacharam or auspicious.
The pradakshina is also carried out around Tulsi plant, Holy Fire, Peepal tree and also around the outer area of the temple. Pradakshina is done in a meditative form after the ritual of puja is over.
