The Paramatma : Overseer And Permitter
Krishna explains about the activities of the Paramatma in our :>ody in the Bhagavad-gita (13.23)
upadrasta anumanta ca bharta bhokta mahesvarah
paramatmeti capy nkto dehe 'smin purusah parah
"Yet in this body there is another, a transcendental enjoyer who is the Lord, the supreme proprietor, who exists as the overseer and permitter, and who is known as the Supersoul."
The Paramatma is thoroughly aware of whatever we think, feel and will, because He is the overseer in the body. So we should not foolishly think, " I am alone, I can think whatever I want, I can do whatever I want." We should become conscious that the Paramatma knows even the thoughts that are going on in our mind. Therefore even in our thoughts we should become pure and gentle, what then to speak of in our words and actions.The Paramatma has complete knowledge of the unlimited desires in our minds and He awards us accordingly. If we desire to do pious activities, He gives us the necessary directions and takes us to the heavenly planets. If we perform some sinful activities, He takes us to the hellish planets. If we are searching for a guru who will give us blessings for material prosperity, He will take us to a cheating guru, who will take some money from us ana give us blessings for material prosperity. If we are hankering know the ultimate truths of life and are ready to live according to them, then He will give us direction to approach a bona fide guru coming in parampara. Thus the Paramatma oversees our desires and accordingly grants permission.
