Idol worship: Fools think that I am equipped with a manifested form.
"Hindu scriptures very clearly state that MENTAL WORSHIP IS FAR
SUPERIOR TO WORSHIP OF IMAGES , but all worship starts with idols and
images. Ordinary people cannot conceive anything with out a form. Even
though JEHOVAH himself never defined WHO IS GOD even to Moses, in all
religions God is worshiped with a name and form.
In Raja Yoga, the scientific part of Hinduism, God is looked upon as if it is PURE ENERGY. In that part of Hinduism there is no mention of God with any name or form. In the UPANISHADS, God is described with metaphors such as NETI-NETI meaning NOT THIS and NOT THAT.
Even in the Bhagavad Gita, God said FOOLS NOT KNOWING MY TRANSCENDENTAL NATURE THINK THAT I, THE UNMANIFESTED AM EQUIPPED WITH A MANIFESTED FORM."

"I laud the seven-rayed, the triple-headed Agni all perfect...." (R.V.1: CXLVI: 1) Triad or Trimurti is the fundamental principle of Hinduism. It means three-in-one i.e., the reality has three faces yet in essence it is one. For example, the most sacred Sanskrit word: ''Om"represents the triad of Vishnu, Brahma and Shiva as well as the Hindu belief in three universes, and so on. Description of the god Agni as having three faces is the basis of the three-headed Shiva, who has been depicted as such on some seals found in the Indus Valley. It should be borne in mind that Shiva is a Vedic god, known as Rudra. He has been mentioned so often in the Rgveda that it is hard to call him a minor deity. Though there is no mention of image-worship in the Rgveda, the Shivite traditions represent the tampered form of the Vedic doctrines the same way as non-violence has become the basic principle of the modern Hinduism though the Vedas and Gita prescribe fighting for a righteous cause and declare it the greatest honour for a true Hindu."
