Hare Krishna dear devotees, my obeisances to all of you.
I have a question. In a lecture by HG Ravi Lochan Prabhu I heard that we should not concoct a form for the lord while chanting. Advanced devotees can directly see the lord and his pastimes, but we just end up mentally creating images. He said that we can instead meditate on the deity of the lord. Krishna's deities are non different from him,so yes we can do that, but my question is, what about pictures? I love a picture of the divine couple and sometimes meditate on it,but now I am confused because that too has to be the concoction of the artist. So should I stop meditating on the picture?
