    tAmevavidadhAmyaham
    I am in everyone’s heart as the Supersoul. As soon as one desires to worship the demigods, I make his faith steady so that he can devote himself to some particular deity.

    Endowed with such faith, he seeks favours of a particular demigod and obtains his desires. But in actuality, these benefits are bestowed by Me alone.

    Worship the Creator

  • 19. DO ALL RIVERS LEAD TO THE SEA?
    Different types of worship mentioned in Vedic texts
    Krishna desires direct worship, not indirect worship
    Small rivers fail to reach the sea, some reach, some don’t
    No guarantee for
    worshippers of devatas
    It depends on the sincerity of their worship
    Plan is to elevate people
