The Creative Use of Forms in Devotional Worship

The Material Basis of Spirituality Science. The Rational Basis of Idol Worship. The Lord of Spring Season. Lord Madhava with Goddess Madhavi: In the Divine Song called Bhagavad Gita, Chapter X, ‘The Infinite Glories of the Ultimate Truth’-‘VIBHUTI VISTARA YOGA’ describes the LORD God Creator’s Infinite Divine Attributes, in verse # 35, Lord Krishna describes Himself as The Lord of Spring Season – The Flowery Season: “Rtunam Kusumakarah.”

What it is to be a Substance? and What it is to Exist? We need to establish knowledge about the man and the world on a firm basis and the information it provides must be tested for its accuracy and consistency with an external reality. We have to make the fundamental distinction between the living and the non-living matter. The scientific advances of the 19th and 20th centuries reinforced the materialistic position concerning the basic similarity of organic living and inorganic physical matter. The man is viewed as a product of natural evolution and is thought to be subject to the same laws of Physics and Chemistry or mechanistic principles.

The Material Basis of Spirituality Science. The Rational Basis for Idol Worship. The creative process called Ritual in the worship of the Creator.

We need a methodology to study philosophy and to understand philosophical statements. Logical Positivism, also known as Scientific Empiricism aims to clarify concepts in both everyday and scientific language. It describes analysis of language as the function of philosophy. This analysis of language and of concepts is important to understand questions of belief and ideology which affect what we think we ought to do individually and socially. I would use this method of ‘Applied Philosophy’ to analyze the concept of Spiritual Optics, the Spiritual Connection between Energy and Life. The Laws of Thermodynamics are important unifying principles of Biology. The First Law of Thermodynamics, also known as the Law of Conservation of Energy, states that Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Spiritual Optics accounts for the capacity of photoreception and the term Spiritual Light refers to the creation of Light by God to begin the designing of Matter and the designing of the Living Matter. The man describes God as the Creator but the worship of God is not easy as God is not an Object that the man can manipulate. The man devised the rituals of God worship using his creative abilities to seek the Creator who remains aloof, distant, separate, and even disinterested or uninvolved with his own acts of creation.

The Material Basis of Spirituality Science. The Rational Basis of Idol Worship. Essence and Existence. Lord Shiva’s Essence in this idol/image is described as “ARDHANARISHWARA”, Half-Male and Half-Female, A perfect Union of Matter, Energy, and The Energy Controller.

The knowledge of Vedic thoughts and concepts spread to Greece and Europe shaping the thinking of Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Moses, and the various Old Testament prophets and Prophet Muhammad condemn idol worship for reasons shared by the Indian philosopher Dayananda Saraswati, the founder of Arya Samaj and other Indian thinkers like Kabir, and Guru Nanak. People like the Sultan of Ghazna invaded India to prove that idols that the Hindus worship are mere stones.

The Material Basis of Spirituality Science. The Rational Basis for Idol Worship. I acknowledge the spiritual nature of the matter without concern for the forms created using matter such as soil, stone, metal, or wood.

In the context of idol worship, I ask you to recognize the writings of Benedict Spinoza who was expelled by Jews as heretic. I can smash stone idols into pieces. But, I can neither create matter nor destroy matter. For God created Matter, the man cannot doubt God’s existence unless and until man can create or destroy matter. It is rational to attach God’s presence to Matter and to visualize God’s presence in stone idols carved by man.

Simon Cyrene

The Material Basis of Spirituality Science. The Rational Basis for Idol Worship. The man’s physical existence on the surface of a fast spinning celestial object demands the operation of Force/Power/Energy that can impose its veil to defend the man from experiencing the reality of earth’s speed which makes earth an inhospitable place.
