Important thing is the person interested in following this path should
have very strong emotional bond with the object of faith. The flow of
emotional energy is directed to this object. Mostly people suppress
their emotions and that often reflects in the form of physical and mental

the purification of inner self.
Continuous meditation of God or object of faith gradually decrease the

or even pain and induces strong bonds of love. Slowly the practitioner
looses the self identity and becomes one with the object of faith, this
