Worship, a Vedic ritual for the invocation of Divine energy and Grace.

These yagnas and poojas, there is some scientific basis to it. These rituals had some basis as a way of creating a conducive atmosphere for people. When people did not have their own ways to create an inner situation, others who knew how to create a conducive atmosphere made certain yagnas during the Vedic times.
Performing poojas still has not helped our country to be free from major problems like population and poverty. It is time we take our lives and our situations into our hands instead of always calling upon Gods to do this. Unless you become sensible, no holy men, no Gods, or enlightened beings are going to do anything for you. You may adore them, worship them or sing praises of them but you will continue to exist in the same misery. There will be no release.
