SYSTEMS OF VEDIC KNOWLEDGE
Our real role as human beings includes performing such rituals to link this physical world with the subtle realms beyond, without which we remain isolated in the darkness of the senses.

Hindu temples are scientifically designed instruments to gather and magnify our higher aspirations on a collective level. They serve to link the human world with the Divine world. The temple icons channel higher energies and deeper knowledge to us. They allow astral forces to become embodied in the physical world. They allow the Gods to descend and work among us. The great temples of South India are probably the best example of this. I keep many murtis (Hindu icons) in my home, which is a kind of temple. I have Shiva, Devi in many forms, Ganesh, Hanuman, Vishnu, Shiva, Rama, and more.  They serve as a constant reminder that we are not alone but live in a universe permeated with Divine forces. I see no contradiction   between such images and the formless Absolute (Brahman). They represent the many sides of Brahman which is infinite.
