[gita-talk] Why is God partial ? Yet, says He is the same to all beings ?


Shree Hari  

Question ‒  The Lord declares,  'I am the same to all beings.  But those who worship Me with devotion,  they are in Me and I am also in them (Gita 9/29).'  Why is God partial ?  If He is partial,  why does he declare that He is the same to all beings ?

Gita Talk Moderators,   Ram Ram


God partial नहीं है। वह सभीके लिये समान है। 
क्या सूर्य partial है जो उसे ही दिखायी देता है जो आँखें खोलता है जबकि उसे दिखायी नहीं देता जो आँखें नहीं खोलता है (बंद रखता है)?


Hari Om

Can there be a more childish Q than this ? !!! Why does He declare what to His children, are the children competent to grasp that ? No... They are are typically brat children, in fact. These children know only to find faults with their elders, and that is what is called their wisdom. Ha....!!!

Any way ... !!! Let us still address the Q....!!!!

Understand what is Equanimity first. Does Equanimity mean "same conduct to all" ? No... !!! That is equanimity of DEATH ( Yamaraja). That cannot be the equanimity of Paramatma. In essence God is "samoham sarvabhuteshu" - but the devotees realize " Mayi te teshu capyaham" . It means that though Lord equally pervades all beings, YET ONLY DEVOTEES REALIZE THIS FACT; OTHER BEINGS DO NOT REALIZE IT. Though God is in all equally, but who realises that? Do we all realise that ? We are busy in using our minds and arguing more, isn't it ? Actually, it is only when devotees realize this fact, that His grace specially starts reflecting in them. But who understands this ? Only those, whose I-ness has come to an end !!! How do you approach Him ? Think of that !!! If you approach Him with devotion He especially gets reflected in you, but if you do not approach Him with that sentiment, though He is equally in you, He does not get reflected in you especially. This is the theme of this verse. Any takers ? 

As a good conductor of heat, or electricity, conducts heat or electricity, but some other substances, do not conduct at all. The defect does not lie, with the source of energy, but with the instrument !!! Isn't it ? So pay attention to the substances and not to the source of energy....if you can. 

Jai Shree Krishna

Hello there,

God is not partial. If you do not want to "think about God" and pray then why should God think about
you? Why should God make "no difference" between people who do "Thinking Divine, 24/7" and
people who do not?

Bye. Good luck!


Shree Hari Ram Ram
