The devotion to God should be based on absence of aspiration for any fruit in return. This point is the life of the entire devotion. In all most all the cases the devotion is based on the need for God’s help in the materialistic life or in getting protection from the hell after death. Such need based devotion will lead to atheism one day or other because atleast after sometime, God will keep silent towards such need based devotion. When God becomes silent and the need for God disappears, the devotion also vanishes like the useless tail in the case of human being in the process of evolution. The tail is well developed in the case of animals because it is needed to throw away the flies.
