A Quote by Sol Luckman on consciousness, human potential, enlightenment, unity consciousness, healing, whole, power, worship, and false god

Human consciousness, not technology, is the key to true enlightenment. Reliance on something outside ourselves such as a technological device to heal us, or make us “whole,” is at best giving away our power, at worst worshiping a false god.

A Quote by Sharma on worship, prayer, and karma

Puja (worship) is offering to God, prathana (prayer) is demanding from God. When we pray by offering all our karma and even ourselves to God, the prayer fruitifies.

A Quote by Swami Vivekananda on universal, god, shiva, and worship

"This is the gist of all worship: to be pure and to do good to others. He who sees Shiva in the poor, in the weak, and in the diseased, really worships Shiva. And if he sees Shiva only in the image, his worship is but preliminary. He who has served and helped one poor man seeing Shiva in him, without thinking of his caste or creed or race or anything, with him Shiva is more pleased than with the man who sees Him only in temples"

A Quote by Terry Pratchett on humour, atheism, gods, polytheism, life, and worship

Rincewind shivered.  He was not, of course, an atheist; on the Disc the gods dealt severely with atheists.  On the few occasions when he had some spare change he had always made a point of dropping a few coppers into a temple coffer, somewhere, on the principle that a man needed all the friends he could get.  But usually he didn't bother the Gods, and he hoped the Gods wouldn't bother him.  Life was quite complicated enough.

Terry Pratchett (1948 -)

A Quote by W. E. B. Du Bois on motherhood, world, and worship

All womanhood is hampered today because the world on which it is emerging is a world that tries to worship both virgins and mothers and in the end despises motherhood and despoils virgins.

A Quote by unknown on church, golf, and worship

I suppose a fellow can worship on the golf course - but it's almost as unhandy as playing golf in church.
