Yoga of Devotion :Wsdom Stimulus 123 : Application of Bhagvad Gita in Self Management

Sri Krishna , further explains on the question of which form of worship is
better – with form or without form ,which was put by Arjuna, that one leads to the other. He describes that worshipping form , one moves to the essence of the form and decodes the perception of reality which is inside the form .Infact , that is the time , the seeker experience the reality in imperishable, unthinkable , eternal ,immovable and unmanifested way. The form is the way to get this perception of reality .Once the sense control is established by this way, and he becomes equipoise, seeking common welfare, he is the one, also moves to the consciousness of Bliss which is represented by Sri Krishna .

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.

In these two form of worship, he again puts a sequential question that who is better versed in Yoga – One who worships the form, or the one who worships the formless ? For centuries ,I think this is the question, which have been time and again asked by number of sincere spiritual seekers .
