An altar is usually associated with religion and is most often in the form of a table where sacrificial offerings are made to God. In Christianity, bread and wine are offered to the Lord. In the Krishna Consciousness movement, various foods are offered and kept in front of the deity of Krishna. As these sacrifices are meant to please the Lord, they are spiritual. One is enjoined to follow certain prescribed procedures, with love and devotion being the most important element.
