Hindu is any and every living being (having Atma):
Atma (Spirit) is a part of the Parmatma (God) and all living beings have the Atma (Spirit). The Atma never dies but the body does. Every Atma keeps getting reborn as the object of the Atma (Spirit) is to purify itself to merge back with the Parmatma (God). Keeping in mind the Karma (act) the Atma does, with the help of its body and mind, it moves (is reborn) from one body form to another and the best earthly form is the human body.
1. Oneness Of Life By Munnan
All living things have the `Atma’,
Which be a part of the `Parmatma’,
And if of a whole they be a part,
So nothing living does be apart. 
Munindra Misra © - Poetry 1969 - 1979
In the human body all have a right to believe in God (Astic) or not believe in God (Nastic). If you believe in God, God can be depicted in lifeless form or with life; formless (Nirakar) or with form (Akar) as:
LIFELESS - Stone
LIFE FORM - Tree/Plant - Bird - Fish - Animal - Human
UNIVERSAL FORM - Sun - Planets - Moon
ELEMENTS - Air - Earth - Water - Space - Fire
Thus in-reality worship in any manner or even no worship is acceptable. Rebirth stops when the Atma (Spirit) merges with Parmatma (God) attaining salvation.

Why do you worry unnecessarily?
Who do you fear needlessly?
Who can kill you - none surely,
The Atma never dies - certainly.
Whatever happened was but good,
Whatever happens will be good,
Whatever be happening is but good,
The past, present, future be good.
For what is past - do not regret,
The future should not worry beget,
The present is passing - no regrets,
Be not lost in emotion or body quest.
What have you lost for which you cry,
What had you brought whose loss you fry,
You created nothing that was destroyed,
You lost nothing but just earthly toys.
To this world you had brought nothing,
From this world you will take nothing,
Whatever you have got be from here,
Whatever you give will be from here.
Whatever you give or take - be from Him,
Empty handed you came and return to Him,
What be yours today was else's yesterday,
And be of others but the following day.
Your basic thought of happiness be -
Its possession as though it be Divinity,
And this happiness will be but surely,
The cause of your sorrow unfailingly.
The cause of sorrows be thought only,
Thought of proclaiming it yours truly,
Its loss, ownership causes sorrow, joy,
In these material thoughts you fry.
Change be but the Nature's rule,
Let death not make you a fool,
In death but life does ever be,
But Man sees this not clearly.
In a second the master you be,
But the very next a slave surely,
Big or small, yours or mine,
Remove from thought and mind.
Then but yours be all beings,
And you of all the living beings,
No sorrow or joy you be seeing,
Sublime songs forever singing.
Even not yours does be the body,
Neither you belong to this body,
It but be from fire, water and air,
Earth and sky - created and cared.
Surrender to Lord and then pose,
For that be your sum best repose,
Those who know this support - surely,
Be free from fear, worry, melancholy.
Body will return to its elements surely,
Cry not when this happens inevitably,
Only the `Atma’ does live infinitely,
Ponder but then who do you be?
Before the Lord surrender fully,
This the best rapport be undoubtedly,
You came from Him most certainly,
And return to Him you must surely.
All acts that you do - ever remember,
Be but by His will - else you slumber,
Dedicate wholly your acts to Him,
And free yourself from rebirth and sin.

Anger makes a dull man witty,
But keeps him poor in eternity,
A man shrinks when he be angry,
And grows in tranquil serenity.
When anger flow in the body,
You lose your temper – your folly,
When distempered – a tragedy,
You lose reason – a calamity.
Anger at lies last in infinity,
Anger at truth be momentary,
Speech – when you be angry,
Will but make you feel sorry.
It is not worth to be angry,
And any threat is a folly,
Reason is your tool mighty,
Think of consequences finally.
Anger causes resentment only,
A headache and tension clearly,
Forgiveness propels growth surely,
With laughter and lightness totally.

Defeat nothing but education be,
First step to betterment clearly,
For it a stride was for victory,
And not just lazing in no activity.
Some defeats more triumphant be,
Than those who attained victory,
A battle lost can be no tragedy,
When the war is won eventually.
Defeat but just be your mentality,
Else you still win with your clarity,
For every breath you take clearly,
Attains you your victory finally.
Any victory be but momentary,
And violence a pit for tragedy,
Prefer defeat to triumph surely,
Than defeat injustice by evil purely.

A second insult be just a stiff apology,
As the first be when hurt was the party;
Damages for aggrieved no medicine be,
But healing from hurt - the desire only. 
Apology an egotism wrong side out surely.
Apology a good way to have last word clearly,
The right sort of people want no apologies,
And the wrong sort take a mean gain cruelly. 
A good rule in life - never apologize initially,
Unless accused never defend unnecessarily,
A request or `please’ may surmise firstly,
And never apologize unless you feel sorry. 
True remorse but never just a regret be –
Over consequence but over motive truly,
Proper action needs no account definitely,
And any excuse but ever ruins an apology. 
An apology - but like a lovely flower be,
Changing the clumsiest moment graciously,
An apology - the superglue of life be,
Repairing just about anything resolutely.
