The sentiments of
thanksgiving and gratitude for the Creator are present within every person. It
is these sentiments which give rise to worship. In other words, the urge to
worship the Almighty is naturally found in every person. The nature of this urge
is such that if it is not disciplined, it might cause great imbalance: Man is
prone to extremes. In the absence of any stipulated amount of worship, he would
have either ended up doing too little or would have gone to such extremes as
monasticism. To both these, history bears ample witness.
