I found a practice: Get a picture that inspires you, put it on your altar and everyday look at that picture, and contemplate this concept of Bodhichitta, and pray for that deity to help you to understand it. Close your eyes and visualize that picture, that image, and make it real in your mind. Imagine that deity coming into your heart and mind, becoming you; you become that, so that deity can help you to act with love and compassion in a way a Buddha would, a way a god would. This is how you can start to teach your mind stream, by the intervention of these deities. They will help you. I am talking about truly elevated deities,related with the Christic path, the direct path.

If I choose Samael Aun Weor or Jesus and have Him in my heart all the time, then I must discontinue chanting om namah Shivai like I usually do? is there a way I can use this mantra (or other) with practice, or it's not recommendable?
For example if someone chooses Padmasambhava, can he chant his mantra together with this practice?
this mantra om namah Shivaya helps a lot, but I don't know how, when I used the mantra klim krishnaya...it helped me be more mindful, but is it right to change the mantra someone uses?

“Lord Krishna is the Prema aspect of Ishvara or the Lord. Lord Siva is the wisdom aspect of Ishvara. Devi is the Sakti aspect of Ishvara. Virat is the manifested aspect of Ishvara. Hiranyagarbha is the immanent aspect of Ishvara. Hanuman is the Rudra aspect of Lord Siva. Dattatreya is the combined aspect of (Trinity) of Ishvara. Brahma is the creative aspect of Isvara. Vishnu is the preservative aspect of Ishvara. Siva is the destructive aspect of Ishvara. Meditate on any aspect you like, attain union with the Lord and cross this ocean of Samsara.”

Under whatever name and form, it is Isvara who is adored. Worship goes to the Indweller, the Lord in the form. It is ignorance to think that one form is superior to another. All forms are one and the same. All are adoring the same Lord. The differences are only differences of names due to differences in the worshippers, but not in the object of adoration. The real Jesus or Krishna is in your own heart. He lives there for ever. He is your Indweller. He is your partner always. There is no friend like the Indweller. Resort to Him. Take refuge in Him. Realise Him and be free.” - Swami Sivananda


Therefore, you can continue with your mantra.

thank you very much! these days I am obsessed with the bhanjan of turkantam Shiva Maheschvara from youtube, which now I see is Mah+Ishvara. and I couldn't understand why I like it so much :)
I do not know if there is any benefit of singing these bhanjans, but it helps me be more close to god

What means prema aspect? So Ishvara is the Lord? I am christian, so I usually call Lord the Father, about whom Jesus spoke, that he does nothing without His Father. I know that its the same word in other language, our beloved Lord is Ishvara then
