    Re: Loving God - Two ways

    Namaste Saidevo,

    I bow to the higher wisdom of our shashtras, and thank you for taking the time to list the shalokas/text relevant to the issue. Ultimately the following goes a long way in reconciling the differences.

    Anirvan, thank you for your inputs.

    Pranam.

    Yes there is. Adi Shankaracharya has put it in one of his prayers.

    Could there be a 3rd way ? to adore Him as my very own Self? Then I carry the ~temple~ with me every moment
    of every day no matter where I put my feet.

    praṇām
    It is in shiva manasa pooja by shankara

Any time the expectation is not met, prize not awarded, demands unfulfilled, the love and affection goes down a notch.
    Thank you for your most illuminating thoughts. I realise now that this is how I approach God and I humbly believe this is a most unsatisfactory way in which to approach the almighty.

    I will endeavour to be more humble in my approach to the Lord and try to accept what happens to me with gratitude.

    Hari Om.
