“Whatever power we have…..from the ultimate source that current is flowing”- Radhanath Swami
God is like a power house, electrical powerhouse. And we are all like different light bulbs. There are 50 watt light bulbs, 100 watt light bulbs, 500 watt light bulbs, 1000 watt light; according to our gunas, according to our karmas, and according to our perseverance, we may be very small light bulbs or we may be very great light bulbs; you may be Ph. D scholar, Nobel laureate, or you may just know basic arithmetic.
But whatever power we have at any level, it is coming from janmaadyasya yathaha—from the ultimate source that current is flowing. And every living being in the human form of life has the independent free will to use that energy and channelize it according to their desire. We could channelize it motivated by greed, lust, envy, anger, pride and illusion; or we could channelize that same energy with compassion, with love, with concern for others and with devotion. But that energy that everyone has is coming from the original source, janmaadyasya yathaha.
