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."
