Names of the Lord such as Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Indra and
others, are his forms such as the Hiranmaya, the mystic gold
form of the Upanishad, or the eight fold form Universal - Ashta-
moorti, all these are means of worship leading to the ultimate
Realization of the Supreme Truth - Sad Darsanam.   Worship by means of forms is indeed fruitful and has a purpose and usefulness of its own, whether these forms are imaged in the human mind,
such as Siva with his bull or Vishnu seated on the eagle.  Worship by means of names and forms is a help indeed to the realization of Brahman as our deepest being the Self.
