"By whatever form a man worships Me, in that form I reveal Myself to him," is the gist of a statement made by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. This is his way of saying what philosophy teaches, that the idea of God which a Man holds is not necessarily altered when he has a Glimpse or feels an inspiration, since these occur on the mystical level. Only philosophic enlightenment gives the double experience of raising man to the higher consciousness and correcting his intellectual idea of God at the same time.
