The Hindus have learned this idea most wonderfully and practiced it most splendidly. They have begun by molding the God of clay, and have put Him in a shrine and have said, "This is the God of clay we have made with our own hands and worshipped it." That is the symbolism. That is the symbol of the worship of God. If we do not make God of clay, we still must make him, for in order to know God we must make him first. Then God will come in the shrine which He has made. The Hindus make a rehearsal by going in the temple of a stone god. In this age they say, "A personal God! Never we can think about it. It is the simple ones who are holding that faith in a personal God thousands of years."
