ततः परं ब्रह्मपरं बृहन्तं यथानिकायं सर्वभूतेषु गूढम्। विश्वस्य एक परिवेष्टितारमीशं तं ज्ञात्वा अमृता भवन्ति ॥ 7 ॥            You are the Supreme Brahman, infinite, yet hidden in the hearts of all creatures. You pervade everything. They, who know You, are free from the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. (Svetasvatara 3 : 7)            परमात्मा सब प्रकार से सब काल में मुक्त और शुद्ध है। वह अपरिमित और अनन्त होते हुए भी सभी प्राणियों के हृदय में छिपा हुआ है। परमात्मा को जानने वाले व्यक्ति ही जन्म-मरण के चक्र से मुक्त हो जाते हैं।

Enduring grace of God

 

CHENNAI, OCT. 13. To attain communion with God, aspira need to meditate on the Supreme Being by focusing on 1 essential nature, the divine attributes, the spiritually enchant­ing form and on His divine sports. Intense spiritual devotion " a mystical experience enjoyed by a rare tew and not all are e blessed. However, all seekers find the devotional outpouring of saints, celebrating god-experience, to be both uplifting and emulative; therein lies the perennial appeal of works such a: the Bhagavatham or the Divya Prabhandam. Imagining him self in the role of Yashoda, the mother of Lord Krishna, Pe-riazhwar, expressed his intense devotion, enjoying the deeds of Krishna the child, thereby focusing on the Lord's divine attributes, Sri Asuri Madhavachari, said in his discourse. The saint eulogises the Lord, skilfully interweaving deeper realities with seemingly ordinary occurrences. The call to get a staff for Him is but a reminder to the devotee that the wielder of Sri Chakra can protect the "flock" everywhere. Krishna extent His grace to the Pandavas for no other reason but that they believed in Him, trusted Him and stayed true to virtuous ct duct. He who gives to those who appeal to Him also gr Himself totally to those men of wisdom who want nothing other than His grace.

 

It is the misguided who harbour ill-will towards the Su preme. It was Kamsa who obsessively thought of death and destruction, and his evil designs rebounded on him, with hi death wish refracting on him. His emissary nf evil, Bakai ura the mammoth ogre that he was, attacked Krishna in the guise of a huge crane, and swallowed Him. However, the crane soon spat Him out, writhing in unbearable agony as if he had con­sumed fire. For do not the Vedas identify Him as the one from whose face fire originates? Tearing up the crane into two was child's play for the Omniscient one who played with birds, sported with Gopis and indulged in numerous pranks.

 

The evil-minded, lacking the spark of divinity, will harbour vicious thoughts when thwarted. Kamsa, unable to grasp the divine supremacy of the Lord thought the best way to attack his enemy was to remove His friend, which would weaken Him; hence he orchestrated an attack on Balarama, by Denu ka who assumed the form of an ass only to come to grief. Thiru-mangai Azhwar, in his devotional thrall, sought liberation for the express purpose of staying in proximity with the Lord. Andal too sought such an experience, as did Brahma.
