EVOKING GOD

We all know that God is omnipresent; He is there in all that exists in this universe. He takes care of each one of us every moment of our life. He is there for us whenever we need Him, but does not interfere in our day-to-day affairs.

There are times when life catches us up in its web and puts us in drastic situations, from where there seems no rescue. It is in situations like these that we get carried away and the fear of the unknown forces us to wander to different avenues to get solutions to our problems. The fact, although is, that no one but God can bring an end to all our difficulties and the problems we may be facing and we should thus just strive to attain His grace to get out of such challenging moments. The only way we can do this is by `Evoking God’. When we attempt to do so, we request Him to be on our side in onerous times or for that matter in all times, so that we can face those situations with ease and are able to get through the testing times without feeling the pain it infuses.

This may sound amusing but this can surely happen. If we request God to be always by our side and to keep us in His divine shadow then He surely stands by our side and makes sure that we cross the toughest of the bridges with the ease, which is formidable to even contemplate. But if we do not feel the need of His presence then He will watch us from far, attempting to fight all the battles the life puts us into.

The biggest example of this was an incidence in Mahabharata. Yudhishthira, the most decorated king of the Pandava dynasty once asked Krishna that why were they not stopped from playing the game of dice and getting into the resultant acts that ruined their life and led to the war of Mahabharata and why did He came to Draupadi’s rescue minutes after the shameless event started happening.

Krishan said, ‘ Dear Yudhishthira, all of you five brothers were so engrossed in the game of gambling that you became unaware of its repercussions. You were so ashamed of your acts that you didn’t want me to witness it, so I stayed away and watched you go in darkness. But when Draupadi called for my name, I immediately responded and was there in seconds to protect her. So, it is only when the devotee calls for me with pure heart and devotion and invites me to be by his/her side that I respond and help them to be safe and happy, elseways I stay away and just watch everything.

Evoking God, thus, is the easiest solution to all our problems and it surely works, if attempted with a pure conscience and utmost faith, and if it happens then the need to worry just fades.

`THE DIVINE PRAYER’

`Om Jai Jagdish Hare’ is a beautiful  Hindu benediction which talks of the glories of God and the more I recite this prayer each day, the more I have started to understand the meaning and the power of every word that is sung in it.

For the love for God and for the benefits of all fellow readers & bloggers and in order to explain the power it holds I am making a humble attempt to describe this eternal prayer verse by verse so that it’s essence reaches to everyone.

Om Jaye Jagdish Hare, Swami Jaye Jagdish Hare
Bhagt Jano Ke Sankat, Das jano ke avgun ,Khshan Mein Door Kare

O my great God, my beloved, you vanquish the difficulties and the ills of your true devotees in fraction of a second. You are always concerned about all the beings you have brought into this world and make sure that all their problems end with a blink of an eye. My Swami ! you are merciful and are a cause of everyone’s happiness.

Jo Dhaywe Phal Pave, Dukh Vinse Man Ka
Sukh Sampati Ghar Aave, Kasht Mite Tan Ka

Whoever worships you with a pure heart and complete devotion ,you take away all their sadness, bestow their houses with abundance and positivity and put an end to all their woes.

Maat-Pita Tum Mere, Sharan Gahun Kiskee
Tum Bin Aur Na Duja, Aas Karun Jiskee


You are my mother as well as my father and are the only one for me. I have nobody else on whom I can rely .Parents are the only ones on whom the child has utmost trust and there is none as dear as them. So,for me it is just you and nobody else.
Tum Puran Parmatma, Tum Antaryami
Par-Brahm Parmeshwar, Tum Sabke Swami

You are the supreme and are omniscient.You are the most superior Godhead and the lord of all.You are omnipresent and omnipotent.

Tum Karuna Ke Saagar, Tum Palankarta
Main Moorakh Khal Kami, Mein Sewak Tum Swami,Kripa Karo Bharta ॥

You are a sea of mercy,are compassionate and are the nurturant ;one who is running the complete show and takes care of everyone’s well-being. I am a fool who commits thousands of mistakes each day.I am the servant and you are my lord ,always keep me under your shadow and keep me blessed.
Tum Ho Ek Agochar, Sabke Pran Pati
Kis Vidhi Milun Dayamay, Tumko Main Kumti

You are inconspicuous and you are the conscious of every being. O, merciful! Please guide as to how a wicked like me can meet you. Show me the path to enlightenment and your attainment. Guide me,so that I can come to your abode and never come back to a human life.
Deenbandhu Dukh Harta, Thakur Tum Mere, Swami Rakshak Tum Mere ॥
Apne Hath Uthaao, Apni Sharan Lagao,Dwar Para Main Tere ॥

You are the friend of ill-fated and you render them from their woes.My lord, my protector, please open your hands and embrace me ,I am fallen on your lotus feet.
Vishay Vikaar Mitaao, Paap Haro Deva॥
Shradha Bhakti Badhaao, Hirday Prem badao,Santan Ki Sewa॥

God bring me out of my material pains,take away all my sins and increase my devotion and love towards you and make me considerate and empathetic towards all.Make me compassionate like yourself so that I can feel the pain of others.

Tan man dhan sab kuch hai tera,swami sab kuch hai tera ॥
Tera tujko arpan kya lage mera॥

O lord! This body, this heart and this money, all that I possess is yours, nothing is mine, so I dedicate all to you. Almighty! May be late, but I have got this realization that the whole world is run by you and we are mere puppets in your hands and that is why I consecrate all; my life and all that I possess to you.

Om Jaye Jagdish Hare, Swami Jaye Jagdish Hare
Bhagt Jano Ke Sankat, Das Jano ke Avagun,Bansariwala Door Kare

GOD

Problems force us to look up to GOD and depend on HIM instead of depending on our own self. There are times when we realize how powerless we are to help ourselves and it is then that we put everything into the hands of GOD and understand that HE is the only one who can save us from every crisis that comes forth us.
