How Does One Make Equals With God in Worship, Obedience, Submission?
A person makes equals with God by doing the following acts:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
