30. Philosophy of Idol Worship--3-2.

 3. A Medium for Establishing Communion With God-2.

    There are many who would glibly say : -

“Oh, God is an all-pervading formless Being. How can He be confined to this idol!”

Are these people ever conscious of His omnipresence?

Do they always see Him and Him alone in everything? No.

It is their ego that prevents them from bowing to the idols of God and with that motive they put this lame excuse forward.

    Empty vessels make much sound.

A practical man who does meditation and worship, who is full of knowledge and real devotion, always keeps silent.

He influences and teaches others through silence.

He alone knows whether an idol is necessary in the beginning of concentration or not.
