      When they attained some progress they gave it up and embarked upon
      the
      next stage,taking up a finer form.It is just like teaching writing to
      a baby
      making her move her pen along the prints of letters.After a little
      practice the
      process is given up and the baby is able to write independently
      without the
      help of a prints.Thus the solid form or the image was to be adopted
      by
      beginners for a time only,after which,they came to the next
      stage.Besides,the
      image set up for the purpose was fully charged with the spiritual
      force so that
      those sitting by,in devotion and worship,gained some of it through
      constant
      radiation.Now person of calibre,having the power to infuse into the
      image the
      spiritual force,are rare,although the process of Pran Pratishta stll
      continues as
      a matter of mere farmality.The result is that the places and images
      thus
      charged thousands of years ago,have by this time,almost lost all
      their effect
      and consequently no practicle gain is derived by those going there
      for
      devotion and worship.It is,however,beyond doubt that the process was
      introduced only for the people of the lowest standard with little
      brain who
      could not otherwise devote themselves to the lord in any way.It is
      but certain
      that the practice,if tenaciously followed to the last,defeats its
      very purpose.and
      does not provide any spiritual advantage Saint Kabir has nicely
      expressed
      the idea in the following.

      "if by worshipping stone one can reach God I shall be ready to
      worship a
      mountain.But for this purpose the grinding-stone which grinds the
      corn to
      feed the world may be better."(CONT.)
