Every movie involving superheroes requires an origin story, and "Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief" has a doozy. The Greek gods on Mount Olympus sometimes descend to earth to have children, you see, and these half god, half humans are demigods. They live among us. One is Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), who is the teenage son of Poseidon and Sally Jackson (Catherine Keener). But he doesn't know this. I wonder if his mom noticed. Kind of a letdown to discover Greek gods are runaway dads.
Percy finds he can think best when underwater for 10 minutes at a time. Poseidon was the god of the sea, you will recall. His best buddy is Grover (Brandon T. Jackson), who is revealed as a sort of assistant demigod assigned to watch over him. His teacher is Mr. Brunner (Pierce Brosnan), who is actually Chiron, a centaur. Give Brosnan a lot credit for wearing the back half of a horse as if he'd been doing it for years.
The movie, based on a novel by Rick Riordan, has fun working out modern parallels for Greek mythology. Percy, for example, thinks he is dyslexic, but it's only that his eyes instinctively turn English into Greek letters. That's no help in class. After learning of his real identity, he goes off to Chiron's demigod training camp with Grover, and he becomes friends with Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), a demi-goddess if ever I've seen one.
The plot heats up. Zeus (Sean Bean) and Poseidon (Kevin McKidd) meet atop the Empire State Building to discuss Zeus' missing lightning bolt, which he believes Percy, Poseidon's son, has stolen. (The story requires a certain suspension of disbelief.) Why, when or how he allegedly might have done so begins as a mystery to Percy, but eventually the situation leads to slam-bam special-effects sequences, as the gods and demigods do battle.
As described above, a person engaged in discharging duties in Kṛṣṇa consciousness is also called a perfect yogī or a first-class mystic. But there are others also, who perform similar sacrifices in the worship of demigods, and still others who sacrifice to the Supreme Brahman, or the impersonal feature of the Supreme Lord. So there are different kinds of sacrifices in terms of different categories. Such different categories of sacrifice by different types of performers only superficially demark varieties of sacrifice.
In this verse also the word bhajanti is used. Therefore, bhajanti is applicable to the Supreme Lord only, whereas the word "worship" can be applied to demigods or to any other common living entity. The word avajānanti, used in this verse of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, is also found in the Bhagavad-gītā. Avajānanti māṁ mūḍhāḥ: (BG 9.11) "Only the fools and rascals deride the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Kṛṣṇa." Such fools take it upon themselves to write commentaries on the Bhagavad-gītā without an attitude of service to the Lord. Consequently they cannot properly distinguish between the word bhajanti and the word "worship."
Eons before the start of the series, the Mantra Deity, Chakravartin, bestowed Mantra unto a singular group of mortals who progressed and eventually transcended their limitations. These evolved beings known as Demigods established an empire upon Gaea and came to be worshipped as Deities by the humans who were not influenced by Mantra. The Demigods set up a hierarchical system and human would serve as the lower class providing their prayers in aiding the Demigods to protect Gaea from the malicious entity known as the Gohma. As the lower class of Shinkoku, the humans were mainly controlled by the Demigods, who they willingly accepted and worshipped. While they lack the ability to manipulate Mantra themselves, they are granted Mantra by the Demigods as a source of power for their technology. This caused an industrial boom, and the human population grew to over 5 billion. Due to the government by the demigods, no civil wars occurred among humans, but they were always under the threat of attack from the Gohma. The level of advancement in civilization in each human city is highly dependent on its location.
500 years later, the people of a village from the colder regions of Gaea have enshrined Asura's remains after his first battle with Yasha. Just as the rest of the humans, these villagers blindly worship the gods and accept death as a blessing to purify their souls. However, after the exploits of the demigod Asura and Mithra's tale of Asura's exploits to future generations of humans, humankind was finally free to progress on its own will and came to worship Asura as a savior of humanity.
