      Mechanical from of worship,commonly adopted by those hankering after
      gods
      and goddesses to serve their wordly ends is also another absurdity.It
      is no
      worship at all. They only play the part of a labourer,so to say,and
      at the close
      they get their day's wages for the physical labour done.The solid
      material form
      of God entertained by them in the mind and worshipped with faith and
      devotion leads to internal grossness and if the practice continues
      for a long
      time they become more and more solid,barring their approach to
      Reality. The
      result in such cases is evident to almost every eye. Ancient sages
      finding
      worship of the Immaterial Absolute, a difficult task for the masses
      to start with,
      had devised certain convenient means for their uplift. They made a
      start by
      taking up something apparent in the solid form which the masses could
      easily
      grasp or understand.Now the things which could be easily grasped or
      understood were different for different people. For the people of the
      lowest
      standartd they addopted something in the apparently solid form.For
      others,more elevated,some abstract form. e.g., splendour,light or any
      godly
      attribute was introduced to start with. For highly cultured minds a
      subtle idea
      of God was enough.Thus it was only for the people of the lowest
      srandard that
      they had adopted the solid form such as picture or image and that too
      only as
      a temporary measure.(CONT.)
