How to Develop Appreciation for Deities? – By Radhanath Swami

Question to Radhanath Swami: How to develop appreciation for deities?

Radhanath Swami: Srila Bhaktisiddanta Saraswathi Thakur, a prominent saint and ourparam guru, instructed us, “Do not try to see Lord Krishna. Try to serve Lord Krishna so that He wants to see you.” We should not think the deity as an object of our enjoyment. We should approach the deity thinking we are an object of His enjoyment.
