What do you mean by the real worship?
What do you mean by the real worship? Worship means service and sacrifice of every body and every thing for the sake of the Lord so that the Lord is pleased by such real love to Him. Worship means practical expression of the divine love or devotion towards God. The main essence of such divine love is the sole aim to please the Lord and not to please himself or any other related soul. This means that the essence of worship is sacrifice for the sake of God and not sacrifice to please yourself or any other related soul. Such divine sacrifice is like the light.
When the light disappears, the darkness enters. The darkness is the selfishness which is extended towards ones own family or relatives or caste or Nationality or religion etc. These are the grades in the darkness only because all this is related to souls only and not to God. The darkness is getting diluted as you proceed from yourself to the society. The weakest darkness is still not light. But since concentration of darkness is decreasing by such dilution, it is appreciable. But you should not forget that you are still within the boundaries of darkness only. Thus, the power in your social service cannot save the society. A spoon of sugar cannot change the taste of the ocean.Only the Lord can change this ocean of salt-water in to the ocean of nectar.
