Why return again and again to these ideas? For a bhakta, only the Divine Presence — in whatever form that Presence is worshiped — is truly worthy of his or her attention and adoration. Yet, so much of each day is spent in activities that are, seemingly, other than “divine.”
So, a bhakta’s daily practice is to “Divinize” all of life — to see the Divine wherever the eye or the hand falls, and in whatever happens as the hours pass by. Br. Shankara discusses how saints, swamis, and other seekers have accomplished this grace-full feat.
