The supreme lord rescues his devotee from the ocean of birth and death. a soul suffering in material existence can never save himself from the ocean of repeated birth, old age, disease, and death. but if he comes to understand god to be the absolute truth, the cause of all causes, he surrenders to him and invokes his mercy. then the lord lifts his long-lost devotee out of the ocean of misery and takes him back to the eternally blissful spiritual world.
increase your anxiety to serve him. this is a real asset. this eagerness to love god is not available even after many, many lives of pious activity. so if you have a pinch of that anxiety to serve god, you should know that you’re most fortunate. “to anyone who is engaged with love and affection in my service, without any hypocrisy, i give the intelligence by which he can come back to me.” by going back to gods abode, you will never return to this miserable material world. so surrender to god, he will enlighten you and your life will be successful .
lord vishnu saved gajendra from the clutches of a crocodile. gajendra eulogises shri narayana who alleviates the miseries of all. he called out to the gracious god ; "oh lord! you are the omnipotent god guiding all deities. you create, sustain and annihilate, the only lord possessing the threefold power. saviour of all creatures! please save me from the firm grip of the crocodile.” on hearing the pitiable cry of his devotee, the merciful lord vishnu descended to the spot on his garuda. shri vishnu rescued his devotee by striking his discus on the head of the attacking crocodile, and granted elephant moksha.
the indisputable truth that is apparent from the story is, ‘god delivers his devotees from the clutches of the wicked.’ herein, the twofold mercy of the lord can be observed. the crocodile in its previous birth was a gandharva by the name huhu. he was cursed by devala, another gandharva, for some reason by which he had now taken the form of a crocodile. lord vishnus discus redeemed it from the curse. it assumed the resplendent form of a gandharva, paid his obeisance to the lord and returned to his region.! ✨🐘🕉👁🌷🔆🐚🌀🍃💕🔔🐊📿🌲🙏🏻✨
