What to ask from God?


Jai Srimannarayana!

Excerpts from HH Chinna Jeeyar Swami’s Pravacanamu on 23rd May ‘10.

(Telugu pravacanamu  translated to English)


The present day life has become highly artificial. We are mistaking it as modern civilization. The wants of public have increased manifold. A simple naïve, contended villager has limited wants and prays at the village temple. His prayers are for the continued welfare of God.  But, sophisticated urban man have too many wishes and try to pray God to grant all of them at the earliest.

We should rise to a level that we should be able not to ask anything from God! By praying God for our desires, we are conditioning his Grace, Compassion, energy and abilities. The meaning of  ‘Sevas’ in the temples signifies this aspect.  If you are doing   ‘Kalyanamu’ of Laxmi and Narayana or Sita and Rama, we are bringing together the universal Mother and Father. With this our wishes will be fulfilled because ‘Amma’ (Mother) knows your wants and they are given by (Father) ‘Ayya’. By arranging the marriage of  RAMA as bridegroom and SITA as bride we are seeking

 “Jagat Kalyanamu”. It includes me, you and all those which sustain the world (Jagat). So, if entire universe is taken care of, you and me are also obviously taken care of.

It is meaningless to seek boon from God as He knows what to give, how much to give and when to give. Henceforth, when we visit a temple, start praying for the ‘Mangalam’ of God. Then automatically, your wishes will also be granted. He will take care of all   your both immediate and long term needs. Then can  we do  try to rise to that level!
