How Does One Make Equals With God in Worship, Obedience, Submission?

A person makes equals with God by doing the following acts:

  1. Praying, adoring, bowing and worshiping the natural things like air, water, fire and things which are man-made viz. stone carvings, statues, images, graves of saints or pious men, etc.
  2. Ascribing divinity to humans by calling them God’s son or wife or His descendants or claiming that they possess qualities similar to that of God.
  3. Worshiping angels (devtas) viz. Agni, Vayu, planets (grahas), who are in fact just God’s creations just like many of His other creations, who sincerely obey Him and have no free-will of their own.
