Worshipping Earth

One day Swami Vivekananda was talking about various kinds of worship prevalent in different countries. All of a sudden Latu Maharaj asked him:
“Brother, you have travelled far and wide and have heard and seen so much. Have you seen people in any country worshipping the earth?”

Swamiji was little surprised and asked, “Why are you asking such a question?”

Latu Maharaj replied: “For this reason: Whatever we see around us has sprung up from this earth. All our wealth and splendour have been taken out of her heart. All that we eat, wear, all that we treasure in our houses and that which makes us think ourselves superior to others has come from her. So I am wondering if people worship the One from whom they get everything they want and enjoy.”
