Harry Kipling (Deceased) works this way, with some creative upshots from Simon Spurrier. A householder is permitted to enjoy conjugal happiness on one night in a month.

Matthews, Charles D. “An Examination of the Character of the Jewish High Priesthood from Ezra to the New Testament Times.” PhD diss., Southern Baptist Seminary, 1945. Worship is a transforming experience in which the finite approaches the infinite. Worship of the said deities is often done through the aid of pictures or icons (murti) which are said not to be God themselves but conduits for the devotee's consciousness, markers for the human soul that signify the ineffable and illimitable nature of the love and grandeur of God.

It is to the immortal glory of India and the world at large that the Gita heartens all with the magnificent ideal of the union of man with God even while living in the world and discharging his duties in a spirit of self-sacrifice, non-attachment and surrender to God.

Gates, Susa Young. “Importance of Record Keeping.” Utah Genealogical and Historical Magazine 5 (January 1914): 16-19. It is not also a transformation of God, as curd is of milk.

The heat of the sun does not affect the head directly. They are believed to live in a higher realm as one's guardians or custodians. Mindful of these specific problems, popular piety in many places has inspired acts of worship as well as displays of charity which provide assistance to pregnant mothers, encourage adoption and the promotion of the education of children. 114.

There are eight resurrectional troparia corresponding to the eight modes of Greek chant used in our church. It is no use insisting people to follow now those old laws which have become obsolete. When we are attached to our current circumstances in life, and when Lord Shiva dutifully changes them, we feel sorrow. We presume we are impressing high heaven by attending churches in large numbers. The fasting which is done in these or other cases is called Tapas, a term which includes all forms of ascetic austerity and zealous Sadhana such as the sitting between five fires (Pañcagni-tapah) and the like.
