Why deity worship is essential and not optional-SP

March 12, 2012 in Articles, Damaghosa Dasa by Nityananda Rama dasa

Devotee (1): Srila Prabhupada, if Krsna is   everywhere, why do we

stress the importance of living a very strict life   in the temple

atmosphere?

Prabhupada: But have you got the eyes to see Krsna   everywhere?

Devotee (1): No, Srila   Prabhupada.

Prabhupada: Then you must attention give to   temple. When you have got

the eyes to see Krsna everywhere, you may   not require temple worship.

But why do you try to imitate that? You have no eyes to   see that. Yes.
