Offering prayers has long been a widely practiced ritual across so many cultures. It gives us a way to express our faith and gratitude towards the Almighty. It was always intended for our spiritual evolution as a society. But with the passage of time, the deep meaning associated with it seems to have faded away. Today, praying has been reduced to an empty act performed only for accumulating more and more Punya or good fortune. Whether it is in a temple, mosque, church or any other place of worship – people still use words like Krupa, Rehmat, Mercy, Benevolence, Blessing etc. in their prayers. Though what they are actually expecting is a raise in their Punya so as to fulfil their materialistic ambitions. Such has been the norm, that having a good fortune is being mistaken for having Krupa. But receiving the fruits of your Punya and receiving Krupa are both fundamentally different.
Krupa is something that is not a consequence of our deeds. It is an expression of unconditional love and compassion from a purer source, one that cannot be exhausted. Think about it – an enlightened Guru, who is just steps away from dissolving into that infinite bliss, has dedicated her life to be a guiding light for us. How could that Krupa ever be finite!
Krupa manifests at much deeper levels. It transforms us from within, and prepare us for such experiences that no external pleasure can ever match. The influence of Krupa on a seeker’s life is not limited to the physical realm. It cannot be ascertained with worldly benchmarks, for it has the power to liberate us from all worldly affluence.
It is only because of an enlightened Guru’s Krupa, that a path is there in the first place! Krupa is the most powerful driving force a seeker can receive while traversing the spiritual path. It is the invisible benevolent hand that helps us rise every time we stumble or fall. It is what eliminates our tendency to deviate and slip back to our vices.
