INDIA is said by good authorities to have a population of at least two hundred and forty millions, the larger portion of whom accept Brahminism as their religion. According to this religious system there are several

[graphic][ocr errors][merged small]

principal gods, and under them no less than three hundred and thirty-three million inferior deities. Images of these gods are found everywhere, and as if there were not enough of these to worship, the Hindus bow down before monkeys, and serpents, and stones. In the picture above there is repVOL. LXXV.


resented a little child taking his first lesson in idolatry. His mother bas brought him to an image of Ganesha, and holds up his hands towards the hideous idol while the lad draws back in terror. Is it strange that te is frightened ? Some of the converts from heathenism have told of the

agony of fear they had in their childhood when first brought into the presence of a monster idol. They were never told of a God who was gentle and loving. He was only hateful and ugly, like his image, and the only reason for worshipping was to escape his wrath. In the picture here given of Ganesha, he is represented with a better form than commonly. He is said to be the son of Siva, one of the principal gods, and to be master of all evil and mischievous imps. As these imps are sup posed to do all the harm they can, whoever wishes success in his plans must invoke the aid of Ganesha. If one is to take a journey, or make a trade, he must pray to Ganesha or he will be hin

dered. One of our HINDU WORSHIPING THE SUN AND HIS TOOLS. missionaries says that carpenters, when they have finished a day's work, will take a bandful of mud and shape it rudely into an image of this god, setting it on guard over night lest some imp destroy the work. Ganesha is always represented as a bloated dwarf, with four arms and an elephant's head and trunk. The story about him, which is believed by the Hindus, is that when a child he angered one of the principal gods who cut off his head, but the murderer being sorry for what he had done, sought to replace the lost head by giving Ganesha the first one he met with. This happened to be an elephant's, and he placed it upon the shoulders of the boy. Better than the worship of such hateful beings is the homage a Hindu sometimes pays to natural objects. These objects, at least, are sinless. The picture here given


of a Hindu worshipping the sun and his own working tools was drawn from a real incident. A missionary, at Madras, once met a road-mender kneeling at sunrise before his pick and crowbar. When told that this worship was folly the man replied, “Without these tools I could not do my work,



and without the sun I could not see to do it. Since, therefore, I get my bread by them, it is only right that I should worship them." But many of the Hindus are learning of the true God, and a better service than that of idols. The verses on the next page tell a pleasant story of a lad who does not now bow in terror before Ganesha, but looks in love to Jesus Christ.
