The Yoga of Devotion : Wisdom Stimulus 122 : Application of Bhagvad Gita in Self Management
Sri Krishna, on answering the Arjuna’s question, on the comparative study between form and formless worship, indicates that worshipping with form is better option then worshipping without form . However he adds three important criteria’s – (1) Mind has to be fixed in Sri Krishna , (2) Consistency and steadfastness is required on the worship (3) Supreme faith is required towards Sri Krishna. If one worships Sri Krishna keeping these 3 criteria’s in mind then he becomes, a best yogi according to Sri Krishna’s opinion. By using the word his opinion, he also indicates he is not trying to impose worshipping him to anybody, but he is encouraging his worshipping, as that is one of the best ways to reach to perfection. He also indicates in some other places in Bhagvad Gita, that he encourages people to come towards naturally, when they are prepared.
