The positive side of Puja.The world is full of different cultures, religions and political groups. People have their own notions about God and their ways of worshipping it. On the other hand there are the atheists who do not believe in any religion and reject the concept of God.
There may be conflicts and confrontations on this variations in beliefs of the people and many wars were fought in history for it only to come back to square one.
I have an observation that those who believe in God and regularly devote some time in prayers or Puja are immensely benefited by it. Contrary to the common belief and understanding, the benefit may not be coming from the almighty but actually derived from the discipline these people are following in their life. They have fixed time for their activities and Puja is an integral part of that. They know that they have to perform Puja at such an such hours and in that focus they will try to complete their quorum of other jobs by that time.
On the other hand the people like me will be waiting for the last hours to take up a job. This is the difference between those religious people and the common mortals like some of us.
Do you feel that people are benefited by such rigid rituals? Does such rituals train them better to struggle in life in comparison to other common mortals?
