"The time has come to understand that man's life-struggle is only man's own, his life cannot go on dependent on Ram. We all humans can rely on each other here, we all can protect each other as far as possible if we try with the right motivation. No one will come to protect man but man, so do not ignore the need to develop man's abilities by believing in vain in any other power. A sick person cannot get any help from large statues and grand worship houses, if we understood the possibility of this happening we would have rushed to these worship houses instead of hospitals when sick. There was a time when this used to happen, but there were no hospitals then. Now that our faith in hospitals has become strong governments should focus on improving hospitals instead of worship houses. And, at the same time, it is the responsibility of all of us to follow Purusharth (own effort and initiative) by giving Tilanjali (goodbye) to the tradition of worship and worship."  by Arvind Jaiswal (FB: April 24, 2021):     https://www.facebook.com/contact7839920315/posts/4101565373238945

Comment:

Religion is easy to understand and simple to practice. The religious leaders make religion unnecessarily complicated and overburdened, which keeps the ordinary folks occupied with rituals to the deity and chasing the swamis and gurus etc. for wisdom. People, Hindus for example, need to keep the following in mind.

(1) A Hindu is a follower of Hinduism which is rooted in the Vedas (Sruti) and Vedic philosophy, and the word Hindu originally might have signified a person partaking and benefiting from Indu (Vedic libation, Soma);

(2) Hinduism admits a three-fold Reality (Satya or Truth) comprising one Brahman (or God, having many names and forms), Atman (soul or souls), and Samsaara (the material world of five elements -- including Sharira or the human body comprising of Pinda or corpse, Manas or mind, Buddhi or intellect, and Ahamkar or ego);

(3) Hinduism considers equality of everyone, irrespective of one’s race (color and language), caste (occupation) or gender (sex);

(4) Hinduism believes in absolution of sins through prayer, and transformations in life according to the karmic law (cause and the corresponding effect) which also upholds that after death the soul transmigrates into a new body according to the accumulated effect of one's actions in previous life; and

(5) The ultimate goal of a Hindu is to achieve Salvation, through good deeds toward mankind and devotion and prayer to God, resulting in no more rebirths after death and the soul resting in peace and harmony with God.

Puja (simple and universal):

Work is worship (puja); work is perfection (siddhi).

Work, whatever it might be (high or low), is worship when it is done honestly / sincerely and as dedication to God:

"A person attains perfection when his / her work is worship of God, from whom all things come and who is in all." (The Bhagavad Gita: Ch. 18 - V. 46)
