O Purusha, You are the bestower of all kinds of aspirations and You fulfill the desires of Your devotees effectively. At the same time You are the giver of the ultimate benefaction-Moksha and in order to bestow that You make the soul to go through the sadhana path and make them experience the truth deeply, thereby cleansing all impurities. As Your nama, Shree Hari reveals, You then relieve them of ignorance and suffering for eternal time . You are the only One who has the power to accomplish this wonderful task for innumerable deserving souls, that too ,endlessly . All other entities have to bow down to Your will and perform as per Your diction always. So complete is Your All knowing, Masterful control on everyone as well as their sense organs and mental faculties.
One who worships Hari as Purusha, the complete One and the giver of highly sought after benefactions , such a one shall obtain the state of freedom from bondage, complete in own’s own self and will be filled to the brim of all experiences one desires. One will have no need to hanker for anything more in this world . Not just in this world but for eternal time too, the final beatitude where there is flawless existence by the grace of God is also obtained by the grace of Lord Purusha. For He makes the jiva perform the required contemplation and makes one a knower to the best of one’s capacities and then moves them towards a state of perfection from where there is no return.
The best of what we have, the best of our experiences which make one happy have all been bestowed on us, by this Purusha who is One and only entity capable of such showers of grace. By doing the upasana of Hari in this manner we remain ever-thankful to His compassion.
We need to note that it is the expression of gratitude to recognize the source of benefactions and that recognition coupled with wonder at His magnificent abilities of complete control on everything gives bliss to the person who feels that thankfulness.
Just being grateful for the small things in life bestows happiness on the one who practices being grateful. Today’s research on the methods to be happy clarifies this point. The source of all benefactions is Hari . Indeed,he neither has a need for any praise or offering, but He sees to it that those who contemplate on His glory obtain the resultant benefits. He being the sarvagnya knows exactly what is required at what time by which soul and He bestows it accordingly. Being the Hrishikesha, the controller of our indriyas and mind, He leads the soul to perform the required contemplation and hence Dasaru calls on Him and surrenders to His overall control on our indriyas. This address of Hrishikesha also discloses the intent of entreating Him to guide the sense organs so that they lead us towards acquisition of knowledge about Him.
