A devotee’s glory is more significant than his own supremacy proves Bhagwan Vishnu

The utmost dear thing to Bhagwan Vishnu is the devotion of his devotee. The devotee’s pure devotion is glorified by the Almighty in all ways, wherein a simple pure prayer is answered and supported by him in such a way that it becomes an inspiration for the entire mankind to follow the steps of devotion. In his various incarnations, he has given a message to mankind that he is always there for his devotees and glorify them through their deeds.
Glorifying Prahlad’s devotion – The mighty demon Hiranyakashyap was crushing down all the goodness of the world, but he could not crush down the devotion of his son towards Bhagwan Vishnu. Whenever Prahlad was harassed by the demons, Bhagwan Vishnu steps closer to him and sends signals to the demons that their end was near. The final outcome of testing Prahlad’s devotion was to reveal his ferocious form as the Narasimha Avatar and killing Hiranyakashyap. By acting through the devotion of Prahlad, Bhagwan Vishnu not only kills the evil forces, but also but also glorifies the devotion of Prahlad to the world.
Becoming the faith of Hanuman – When Shri Ram gives his signet ring to Hanuman, he was very well aware of the fact that it was Hanuman who would find out Mata Sita’s whereabouts. He boosts Hanuman’s strength by giving him the ring signifying his belief in Hanuman. This gave Hanuman the determination to search for Mata Sita at any cost and also gain the power to leap the mighty Ocean to reach Lanka. With Shri Ram’s encouragement, Hanuman reaches Mata Sita, destroys the city of Lanka and sends a warning message to Ravan too and finishes his task given. Shri Ram with his ardent affection for his devotee thus glorified Hanuman in a way that no other could ever surpass his strength or power.
Giving courage to Arjun – In the Geeta, Bhagwan Krishna says to Arjun, “Get up and prepare to fight”. The evil forces are already destined at my will, you are an instrument to fight” Arjun was worried about killing his kith and kin in the final Kurukshetra War and decides to quit fighting. Bhagwan Krishna becomes the guiding factor for Arjun and discourses him about the cycle of life and death which actually is controlled by him and how a human needs to do his karma and leave the result to the Almighty. With the guidance of Bhagwan Krishna, Arjun exhibits unbeaten valour in the war which makes him one of the greatest warriors of Mahabaharat.
Whenver there was a need to destroy evil forces the Almighty chose to appear and act through his devotees who are his main weapons. But, they are not just mere weapons, but representations of people who have totally left their egos and surrendered themselves to the feet of the Almighty. Although Bhagwan Vishnu already sets what is going to happen in destiny, he loves to give the credit of the final outcome to his devotees rather than himself which make our belief in him stronger.
