God pervades his whole creation.

Image may contain: one or more people and outdoor

"It is very difficult to worship an unmanifested God or the God who is invisible (Avyakta Brahman). It is much easier to focus your mind and senses upon a manifested from of God and worship him. Each image is a manifested form of God only. Since God has no specific form, any image that you create or use to worship him qualify as his form only. You may either consider it symbolic, or representative or a living embodiment". ~~ Bhagavad Gita
God pervades his whole creation. He is hidden in all. Therefore, if you are determined and focused, you can find God in any object upon which you set your mind. It is what we learn from yoga. For a self-realized yogi, the omnipresence of God is not a mere concept, but an experiential reality. With the help of yoga, it is possible to experience oneness with the object of your concentration. That object can be anything. It can be a stone, a tree, the Self, or an image of God. In that effort, by withdrawing your mind and senses and making them still, you can bridge the gap between the subject and object and subjectively experience the object as if you are absorbed in it or as if you are its very essence or it is your very essence. If that object is God or any of his forms, it is even better because you can experience oneness with him. Thus, although image worship may appear to be too simplistic or primitive, it is the best way to prepare yourself for the practice of yoga and enter the essence of God which is hidden in everything to experience him as your very Self.! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ•‰๐Ÿ“ฟ๐ŸŒ€๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
