Every religion follows certain rituals and customs which are practised very strictly by majority of the people. No matter what religion you follow you offer prayers and respect to a divine form which is God.
Few ethical people ignore worshiping idols and other forms and seek God in the form of mediation or through realistic activities. Since the Vedic age there are many rituals and practices followed by Hindus every day. Some rituals are practiced daily and others depending on the planetary influences. Rituals are performed to make the body and soul attain peace and harmony.
