In the whirlpool of fleeting sensual pleasures you have forgotten the purpose of life andgoal. You live more for the body than for the soul. In your pursuit after the phantom shows ofworldly vanities, you have annihilated the spiritual instincts and longings of the soul. What a sadstate! Mysterious is Maya! Mysterious is Moha! Open your eyes now. Wake up from the longslumber of ignorance. Realise the ultimate Reality and enjoy eternal bliss. Pathanjali (yoga sutras)

Questioner: Why do we worship God?

Krishnamurti: I am afraid we don\'t worship God. Don\'t laugh. You see, we don\'t love God; if we did love God, there would not be this thing we call worship. We worship God because we are frightened of him; there is fear in our hearts, not love. The temple, the puja, the sacred thread - these things are not of God, they are the creations of man\'s vanity and fear. It is only the unhappy, the frightened who worship God. Those who have wealth, position and authority are not happy people. An ambitious man is a most unhappy human being. Happiness comes only when you are free of all that - and then you do not worship God. It is the miserable, the tortured, those who are in despair that crawl to a temple; but if they put aside this so-called worship and understand their misery, then they will be happy men and women, for they will discover what truth is, what God is. ...
