The attitude of the worshipper and the worshipped is truly the seed of Bhakti (Devotion). First, the worshipper’s mind is attracted by the unique qualities of the Divine. He tries to acquire for himself these special qualities of the object of his worship. This is Sadhana (Spiritual Practice). In the early stages of worship, there is clear distinction between the worshipper and worshipped. Later, as Sadhana progresses, the feelings of distinction will diminish. Finally when the attainment is reached, there will be no distinction whatsoever. To get there, one must have the firm faith in the Lord.
The only wish that is fit to be entertained in the mind of a devotee is the desire to realize the Lord in this very birth.
