The Sanatana Dharma or eternal religion, as already mentioned, holds that ultimately each individual must have his or her own religion. We should each create our own Gods and scriptures. Ultimately the entire universe is our creation. Each one of us is entitled to worship the Divine in whatever form our heart seeks. Let be a stone, a tree, a cloud or let be Christ or Krishna, male or female, the most noble ideal or great concept, that is not the issue. What is important is that we really give our hearts to the Divine. The form is an aid and a catalyst and in the end must be dissolved into the universal Godhead.  

Bhakti Yoga is often related to Karma Yoga as it usually involves either service to the Divine or service to humanity. While devotion is the proper attitude of the soul towards the Divine, compassion is the proper attitude of the Divine and the awakened soul towards the rest of creation. True compassion is a Divine quality and can only come from an inner connection with the Divine. It is not to be confused with pity that looks down on others. It is a force of unity which respects the Divine power and intelligence in each and seeks to aid in its unfoldment.  Christianity itself is primarily a teaching of the Yoga of devotion. All the practices of the Yoga of devotion can be adapted to Christ, the Madonna or to the various saints of the Christian tradition.
