In this universe, there are so many people who do not get any respect from others – the downtrodden, half-fed, half-naked humanity. You are to pay respect to those downtrodden people. You are to elevate their standard, their socio-economico-cultural standard.
If you do not pay respect to them, how can you serve them? You are serving the downtrodden people by ascribing Godhood to them.Reprinted with permission of Ananda Marga Central Publications.
