"How to worship God in man? Worshipping an image is easy. You can give plenty of food, and you can
take the food back home too. But when you worship God in man, a different method is needed. That is
beautifully expressed by two great words in the sloka: dana-manabhyam, 'through dana, gift, and mana,
respect. Remove their wants. If they are uneducated, give them education; if they are suffering, give
them consolation; if they are helpless, help them. In this way practice dana. And while doing so, show
mana, respect to them. Don't throw a coin before a person with disrespect. So, dana must be combined
with mana. Arhayet danamanabhyam. arhayet, worship (me there); not merely serve."
