Srimad Bhagavad Gita (9:29)
The same am I to all beings; to Me there is none hateful or dear; but those who worship Me with devotion are in Me and I am also in them.
I am like fire: As fire does not ward off cold from those who are afar, but removes it from those who apporach, near, similarly I favour the devotees, not others.
समोऽहं सर्वभूतेषु न मे द्वेष्योऽस्ति न प्रियः |
ये भजन्ति तु मां भक्त्या मयि ते तेषु चाप्यहम् ||
samoham sarva bhUtEShu na mE dvEShyOsti na priyaH|
yE bhajantitu mAm bhaktyA mayi tE tEShu cApyahaM||
Sri Swamiji's song on the glory of divine name:
"Annai meera sendra vazhi edhuvae
Arumai guruvum seppu mozhi idhuvae
Tarunam idhai neer nazhuva vidadir
Hariin madiyil ammarnthidalamae"
Today is Narasimha Jayanthi. Lord Narasimha has incarnated just to make the words of His devotee Prahlada true.
Prahlada, blessed by his Guru Sage Narada, has always chanted the divine name of the Lord and was blessed to be seated on the lap of the Lord.
