        The Light is pervading all,its very fine and intelligent.No beginning and no end-no shape.
        Idol worship is okay as it is a physical representation of the light.Yet one must remember the idol represents the Light.Move from shape to no shape. smile

    God is LIGHT becasue LIGHT is ENERGY and that ENERGY is all around us and in us,  We canot escape it.  Darkness is just without light and eventually light will overtake it and no one can stop that.  LIGHT = ENERGY = LIGHT.
    The thing is--energy is even in inanimate objects...

      Its a representation of the Light which is formless.
      The Muslims and Sikhs are against it because it could be misguiding.At the same time all is God so to worship anything as God is actually okay. smile
      The first Sikh saint the Prophet Guru Nanak was against all forms of idol and image worship but look what has happened with the Sikhs ,you have Gurudwaras made by the followers as a sign of respect.
      I dont see anything wrond in having a idol of Shiva or Jesus as both represent the Light ,man becoming God-man.The whole world is permeated by God but these spots become what s known as power centres,because holy ones have meditated there.

        We were debating earlier on the meaning "the finger pointing to the moon-dont concentrate on the finger or else you will miss out on the beauty of the moon".Similarily use the idol to go beyond.
        The Buddhists have mandalas intricate paintings on which they meditate .The monk must picturise the whole mandala which aids in improving your concentration powers.Ultimately it leads to one pointed concentration.According to Patanjali the father of yoga -seven breaths of one pointed concentration will  get you enlightened.
        Look at and an Indian idol and he or she will have four hands,just an example.This is symbolic-one hand will have a weapon showing the the aspect of the warrior-one can defend himself or herself,one hand will hold a book -showing knowledge,one hand a rose showing respect for nature and may be one hand showing a begging bowl- all comes from God.This is a complete human.
        The Prophet Buddha would along with his disciples beg for food at the end of the day and whatever came in their bowl they would say thank you and be gratefull to God the provider.smile

            I must add here.Hindus believe the idol can come alive.The god or goddess actually resides in it.Different idols have different powers. smile
