886 – Bhagawan and Prarthana

Bhagawan is God and prarthana is prayers.

The Lord is Bhagawan (God) and is described as one who knows the cause of creation and destruction, the reason for the birth and departure of Jiva, the period Jiva has to remain on the earth due to his Karma. Bhagawan is not a Guru and this is explained in the Sanskrit literature. Vishnu Purana defines Bhagawan as he who understands the creation and dissolution, the appearance and disappearance of beings, the wisdom and ignorance.

Prayer is Prarthana and is a request for the fulfillment of any desire, be it spiritual or worldly. Prarthana is one’s direct line of communication with God and his Gunatita (freedom from all gunas) sadhu. Who is the Gunatita sadhu? He is not God, but God works through him.

We function with Bhagawan’s blessings and through prayers we seek his intervention in our lives, enabling us to perform our duties and live our daily life with awareness.

Dear Ones, look around you, Bhagawan is present everywhere. Be conscious of the divinity and appreciative of even a dead leaf.
