Deity Worship

Keshava

This plays a large part in the overall picture of traditional Bhakti Yoga practise, though in the western evolution of the Bhakti movement kirtan singing is more widespread. Deity worship is more specialised and is usually undertaken by devotees who have gone more deeply into Bhakti Yoga as a spiritual path and have taken on a religious way of life. There is great potency in this form of worship, and it can take a high level of commitment. ISKCON, the Hare Krishna movement are masters of this practice.

Developing Personal Practise

ShivaListening to devotional music is a great way to immerse yourself, the long term effect of which is to change the background noise of the chattering mind to the transcendental vibration of the Holy Names. Imagine waking up in the morning to the already present sound of the Holy Names cascading through your mind instead of an accumulating list of things to do clambering for attention.
