Devotion helps you attain the bliss of merging with God most easily by channelising towards Him the mental agitations, the sensory and emotional urges. The various modes of worshipping the Lord in temples depict this concept. You will find various ceremonies, from ‘awakening of God’ in the early dawn to ‘putting the Lord in bed’ late at night. These ceremonies are intended to heighten and promote the devotional trends of the wavering mind. Each incident helps sublimation of the appropriate emotion, in a peculiarly charming manner. In the sublimity of that experience, the agitation of lower emotions decline and disappear. The mundane and vulgar feelings of ordinary life become elevated to the status of worship and dedication to the Almighty Presence. The Lord evokes in you the emotion you associate with Him. When the Lord is conceived as the Most Loved One, as Jayadeva, Thukaram, Surdas, Radha, and Meera conceived Him, He manifests Himself as the nearest and the dearest and showers bliss!
