There is no greater devotee than Hanuman and Gopikas. Both have worshipped their contemporary human incarnations only, which were Rama and Krishna respectively. Hanuman did not worship the statues of Vamana or Parusurama who were the past human incarnations or the statues of heavenly energetic forms like Vishnu, Shiva etc., or the formless God. After completing the learning from the god-sun, He did not say that He was Brahman already but He became the Brahman finally by serving the contemporary human incarnation. The present Advaita Scholar is reverse to this who says that he is already Brahman and never became Brahman! Hanuman did not go to temples and pilgrimage, never chanted any mantra, never did any penance etc. He simply recognized the human incarnation in His generation and served Him in whatever way the Lord required.
The same Hanuman lived after Rama also till the next human incarnation came. During the time of the next incarnation, Krishna , Hanuman was worshipping Rama only in His mind. But Krishna corrected Him and made Him a devotee of the contemporary incarnation again. Similarly, Gopikas did not worship the statues of past human incarnation like Rama or statues of Vishnu etc., and did not do anything except worshipping their contemporary human incarnation by offering butter, by dancing with Him etc. These Gopikas reached the highest Goloka. These Gopikas were the ancient sages who wrote the Upanishats, which form the basis for Advaitins.
As Gopikas also, they retained their previous knowledge about God and cannot be treated as illiterate (Mahatmya Jnana"Narada Bhakti Sutra). Pandavas who recognized their contemporary human incarnation but could not do total sacrifice for the Lord due to limitations of justice, could go only up to heaven. Every devotee in Hinduism has digested these three epics thoroughly and the essence of these is very very clear. What more proof is required for the concept of the contemporary human incarnation than this? Everywhere in Gita, the worship of Krishna was stressed which means the worship of the contemporary human incarnation.
The worship of alive human form of God is far better than worshipping the energetic forms and worshipping the dead human forms (Devan Deva Yajo Yanti Pitrun Yanti Pitru Vratah" Gita). The word "Pitru" here can be taken as the past human form of God who was the real father of the soul. Jesus referred to these alive people who worship the past dead forms as dead because they should go to the past in the same state of dead to get the effect of contemporary human incarnation (Let the dead burry the dead").
One cannot argue that it is impossible to please God in human form by such total sacrifice of work and fruit of work. This argument is not correct because such total sacrifice is possible in the case of the children. It is not possible only in the case of God. If it is really impossible by itself, it should have been impossible in the case of the children also. People want the highest fruit through the easiest path. Hence, they have changed the very goal itself.
Suppose it is very difficult for you to travel to Delhi . But you want to go to Delhi . Then, you name a nearest village as Delhi and reach that Delhi . Now you are satisfied that you are in Delhi . You will say that there is no Delhi other than that village. Generations have passed and after a long time, that petty village stands as Delhi . People do not know even the existence of the real Delhi . But the truth is that that petty village can never be Delhi and any numbers of people of any number of generations staying in that petty village are not the citizens of Delhi . This is the power of truth and the incapability of the tradition.
People want the grace of God by theoretical devotion like prostitutes or want the grace of God by investing some work or wealth like business people. The difficulties in self less service and in doing sacrifice of work and wealth without aspiring any fruit in return to the contemporary human incarnation lead the people to investigate a new comfortable God with a comfortable path. This new God is formless or a statue and the path is theoretical meditation or theoretical devotion with sacrifice of little work in leisure time or with sacrifice of little wealth to escape the tax problems.
