Way of Worship Opposed to Scriptures Leads to Hell

In Gita Adhyay 16 Shlok 23, 24, it is stated that those who abandoning the ordinances of scriptures follow way of worship according to their whimsical desires {worship of the three gunas, Rajgun-Brahma, Satgun-Vishnu, Tamgun-Shiv, and other gods-goddesses, idol-worship, Pitra-worship, ghost-worship – to carry out shraadhs – offer pinds, worship of place of pilgrimage, circumambulation of Govardhan, to visit places of pilgrimage, to practice austerity, worship of peepal-jaanti, tulsi, jaap of naam without a guru, yagya, to give charity, goddess of Gurgaon, of Beri, of Calcutta, worship of Mata of Seenk Paathri, worship of tomb, Guga peer, baba of Johad (small lake), worship of a date (to keep fast of any type), worship of Baba Shyaam Ji and worship of Hanuman etc is known as ‘opposed to scriptures’.} neither can they become happy, nor attain liberation. Therefore Arjun, perform those actions which should be done according to the ordinances of the scriptures. For you, the scriptures are the only evidence. A wrong way of worship, instead of being beneficial, is harmful. Search for the Tattavdarshi Saint who instructs the true way which is in accordance with the injunctions of the scriptues. By doing bhakti of only the Supreme God, you will attain eternal peace, all the happiness and supreme salvation. (There is special evidence in Gita Adhyay 18 Shlok 62, Gita Adhyay 15 Shlok 1 to 4, and Gita Adhyay 4 Shlok 5.)
