Deity worship in vedas

Many people also attend this temple to get darshan of the single Deity of the 6 feet tall Lord Balarama.Dauji is the Deity of Lord Balarama that was originally installed 5,000 years ago by King Vajranabha, Krishna’s great-grandson.Near this kund is a temple to Harideva, and in the bazaar is another temple to Banke Bihari.So, Deity worship as seen in the temples has been around for thousands of years.From the other side of the temple you can see the Deity of Revati, Lord Balarama’s wife.For example, meditation was the recommended process for Satya-yuga, when people lived much longer and Could sit in meditation for long periods of time.Then in Dvapara-yuga it was best to engage in elaborate worship,with opulent offerings to the Deities and prayers and mantras sung to the Deities.Then in Treta-yuga it was best to engage in various and extravagant rituals, havans,yajnas, or fire ceremonies.So, all of these processes have continued down through the ages to some degree or another.Nearby is the Balabhadra Kund or Kshira (milk) Sagara (sea) where the Deity of Lord Balarama had been hidden during the Moghul invasion.(Bhag.) In fact, King Vajra established a number of Krishna deities in the area.By Stephen Knapp There have been some people who have declared that the worship of Deities or images or the murtis in the temples is but a recent invention of Vedic culture. It is true that according to the different yugas or ages (such as Satya-yuga, Treta-yuga, Dvapara-yuga,and Kali-yuga) there are different processes for spiritual development that have been more recommended than others.However, in Kali-yuga, though we still see all of these processes used, it is now the chanting of mantras, that is the most highly efficient and recommended process of spiritual growth in this age.East of Mathura is Vrindavana, and in Vrindavan is the Radha-Govindaji temple that is another of the seven major temples of Vrindavan.
