According to the Vedas, they have given a description what does God and His great devotees look like. And it describes that because God is omniscience and omnipotent, that if one makes a form in His image, according to the scriptures and begins to worship installed according to the Vedic rites; that He Himself manifests within that very form. He is personally present; that is much different.
