|The author of the
Narada Sutras says: -
"Worship God at all times with all your heart and with all your mind. Glorify Him in
your heart, and He will soon reveal himself to you and you will feel His presence."
And the Bhagavan of the Gita says:-
"To those who are devoted to me and worship me do I give the steady mind by which
they come to me. Out of com passion for them do I dwell in their hearts and dispel
dark ness born of ignorance by the shining lamp of wisdom."
God reveals Himself to us in many ways. He takes on the form, which we have chosen, to
worship. If we worship Him as Siva, He will come to us as Vishnu. If we worship Him as
Siva, He will come to us as Siva. If we worship Him as Devi, He will come to us as Devi. Or if we
choose to worship
any of the Avatar forms, He will reveal Himself as such to the eye of faith. To Tulsidas
and Ramdas He appeared as Rama, to Vallabha and Caitanya He appeared as Krsna, and to
Ramakrishna Paramahamsa He appeared as the Mother, Kali.
Gita says: -
"Whatever be the form which a devotee seeks to worship with faith, I make his faith
steadfast in that form alone."
