Ishta Devata

Ishta devata (Heart felt divine being) is the essential nature of ones heart! Trying to discover that continuously, with or without external support, helps to align oneself in the direction of letting that manifest in the world!

svadhyayad ishta devata sanprayogah (Yoga sutras - chapter 2, sutra 44)
Self-study and reflection on yourself (svadhyaya) brings you into contact with the desired ideal.
