between the individual's energy and the cosmic energy. Whenever
there is balance is disturbed, a person suffers physically and
Worshipping helps in correcting this balance as it generates
positive energy and helps in avoiding negative thoughts. This is
especially true in Indian context as both yoga and meditation are considered to be an inherent part of worshipping.
However, worshipping helps in healing when it is closely associated
with the spiritual practices. By merely resorting to rituals one
may not get desirable results. Though there are some rituals, such as
sitting in a particular yogic posture while praying to the God that
has a positive effect on one's health.

have been traditionally used for worshipping in India. These are
scientifically designed instruments. They help in increasing the
concentration of mind and relieve one of stress resulting in
recovery from any illness at a much faster pace.

the God. The sound generated by these hymns creates vibrations, which
help in turn release lot of positive energy in and around a person.
This helps greatly in reducing the pain and suffering.

those who donít worship.
The former also lead a relatively less stressful life than the
latter. Those who worship regularly have a faith in God that helps
to deal with stress, which is a result of various insecurities that
one faces quite often.
