1> As told by shri Vishwanathan
"All ritulas we carry is nothing but to gain
strenths or materials to carry out living and Nothing
But it contradicts the statement of gita
where lord Krishna says that those who dont take
shelter to me and worship me they go again and again
in power of maya and take birth in this world again
"Daivi hyesha gunamayi mam maya duratyaya
Mameva ye prapadyante mayam etam taranti te"
so how can the worship of god and rituals intimately
connected with it are just to gain physical and
pshycologial strength to carry out living?
2> Though the supreme truth is one but to
understand it we have to take the shelter of worship
as though the electricity is same throughout, to take
its advantage or to use it we have to convert it into
some other form like light or kinetic.
similarly to understand the supreme brahman we have to
take the shelter some form of it as the supreme
brahman cannot be understood directly having this
and also as stated in gita the path of sankhya will
give only pain in due course of time as stated in
"sanyasastu mahabaho dukhamaptumayogatah"
therefore it is neccesary to take shelter of yoga to
attain the brahmana.
