INTRODUCTION

(4) Antaryami aspect of God: To conceive God in the form which abides in the region of the heart of the devotee, which stays with the individual self as its friend in all its experiences such as Heaven, Hell, etc. and is perceptible only to the Yogins. In this aspect, God exists in atomic form and invisible to normal modes of perception. But He may become manifest when onemeditates on Him with proper concentration of mind and controlling the intellect.  

(5) Archa Form: This is the most important of various aspects of God. Sri Srinivasadasa, a great Vaishnavite Acharya, states in his memorable Yatindramatadipika: "What is called Archavatara is that special for  which, without remoteness of space and time, accepts for its body any substance  chosen by the devotees and 'descends  into it with a non-material body; He becomes dependent on the worshipper for bath, food, sitting, sleeping, etc. lie bears everything and is replete with knowledge and other attribute, He is present in houses, villages, towns, sacred places, hills, etc."
