Pleasing Living Gods

You need please the God of Sun once in a year
You need please the God of Rain once in a year
You need please the God of Fire once in a year
You need please the Goddess of water once in a year
You need please the Goddess of wealth once in a year
You need please the Goddess of Knowledge once in a year
You need please the Goddess eliminating darkness once in a year
You need please the Goddess demolishing evil forces once in a year

You need please very angry God 'Shani deva' the saturn, once in a week
You need please all Living Gods around you every day and every moment.

    I (infact all of us) have never heard of any god's is only human nature to make any dead human or even animal a god or a demigod...and all the rituals and worships I feel are necessary as means to unite us for a disciplined moral code of social life...god fearing helps one to stay away from immorality let go 'pleasing living gods'....thank you (Report) Reply

    there is no pleasing or appeasing anybody living or mythical Gods. what living hell life would be if if one is an approval addict, or lives in fear of rejection.

    well said, Palas

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
