“BHA means creation, GA means protection and VA means change or transformation: Bhagavan is capable of all the three.- Bhagavan has seven characteristics; Aiswarya, Keerthi, Jnaana, Vairagya, Srishti, Sthithi and Laya. Whoever has these seven, you can consider as having Divinity in Him. Splendour, Prosperity, Wisdom, Nonattachment, Creation, Preservation, and Destruction - these seven are the unfailing characteristics of Avatars of the Mahashakti which persists fully when it has apparently modified itself with Mayashakti.
“Bhakti is really unswerving loyalty to God who is with a form, and attribute and a name. You can grasp with the reason that you are endowed with only concrete name-form-attribute-ful things. So, God has to appear before you with form, sakara, saguna, sarupa, so that you can love Him and serve Him and follow Him and get liberated by Him.
“Whoever with Viveka and Vairagya, and Vinaya or Vijnaana with discrimination and renunciation, with humility and wisdom are aware of the knowledge of Reality, whoever are always immersed in the contemplation of my leela, whoever dwells on my name at the time and under all conditions, and who sheds tears of love whenever the Lord's name is heard from any lip, they are my genuine Bhaktas.
The name Bhagavatha indicates the account of those who have contacted God and the Godly. God assumes many forms and enacts many activities. The Bhagavatha describes the experiences of those who have realised Him in those Forms and those who have been blessed by His Grace and chosen as His instruments.”
