There is no need to search for God,
since he is everywhere and in everything.

The mood that is predominant in Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of spiritual devotion) strongly relates to Shringara (Love), but also includes other Rasas such as Peace and Wonder. The Love of the devotee is as real as in other types of Shringara, because the deity (including depictions such as pictures or sculptures) is seen as more real than anything else.
The advanced bhakta (devotee) bypasses the addiction problem that is typical for other types of Shringara, because he or she feels that God is always around and available. Everything is God, so only unity is seen, even in the diversity of life.
Bhakti Yoga is a very difficult path for the modern mind, because it requires the intellect to stop doubting God and Love without expectation. That is why in Bhakti Yoga the Bhava or mood of devotion must be maintained at every moment. Always keeping the place of worship clean and beautiful is a first but essential step in that direction.
