Before discussing how we can help serve the Deity, we should understand why we should want to. The process of Arcana or Deity worship is very important for anyone who wants to learn to love Lord Krishna. Love only has meaning with a personal relationship with the Lord. Due to our contact with the material world for a very very long time, we have forgotten our eternal relationship with the Lord. We cannot even see the Lord in his original spiritual form, so how can we develop any kind of personal relationship? The answer is simple. We need to engage in Deity worship.
There are many levels of Deity worship allowing anyone to benefit from this relationship. Simply to come and see the Deity in the temple is service, but it is proper that whenever you come to visit a special personality, especially the Lord or his pure devotee, you should bring some gift or render some practical service. To the right is a general list of services that you can render according to our position and the commitment that you have made toward the path of devotional service. . The main point is that we all need to be connected to the Deity through some kind of service.
