In the first step we display trees,plants etc.At the top most step we place God’s and Kalasa.So,we should understand that life is a steady develoopment.We should not go downwards from human level we should raise ourself to Mahan level and then to level of god and finally merge with Sakthi.

That is JEEVATHMA AND PARAMATHMA should merge togeather
