Hindu’s receive a lot flak for vigrahaaradhana, (I some how hate the term Idol Worship). People donot understand the fact that we see the divinity inside the moorthi and worship the divinity. Some how any adherents of Abrahamic faiths don’t get this and derive a lot of pleasure in mocking us.
Here is an awesome speech by Swami Chinmayananda on this subject.
I liked Swamiji’s logic. The way he bought out the facts was awesome.
