Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals :Ch-6. Part -9.
Chapter-6. Lord Sri Krishna – The Purna-Avataram
Thus to worship God is to worship the whole world and to serve God is to serve humanity, and vice versa.
That is why we are sometimes told, "Janata janardanah; manava seva madhava seva," etc.
These sayings have a great significance and a meaning behind them.
Janata and Janardana, Manava and Madhava cannot be identical except in terms of the perfection or Purnata of God.
Thus our communion with God is simultaneously a communion with everything in the world.
Thus, this is an occasion for us to strengthen ourselves spiritually.
Spiritual strength, of course, is the real strength and real power that we are seeking.
