The American Paradox
Since 1960,
 The divorce rate has doubled.
 The teen suicide rate has tripled.
 The recorded violent crime rate has quadrupled.

has sextupled.
 Depression has soared - to ten times the pre World War II level.

demigod worship

For one capable of scoring 80%, it is undesirable
Is demigod worship good or bad?
For atheists and materialists, it is recommended
For serious spiritual seekers, it is discouraged

The Vedic system of multi-level
worship bears testimony to:
1. A unique concern for the individuality
of the worshipper and
2. An unparalleled flexibility of the worshipable
in making himself accessible
