Ishvara Pranidhana In Hinduism – Intense Devotion To God

Intense devotion to God is known as Ishvara pranidhana in Hinduism. Pranidhana means intense devotion. Ishvara is God. In Yoga Shastra God is not looked upon as the creator of the universe. Yoga shares most of its philosophical presuppositions with Samkhya. Yet, unlike Samkhya, which is frankly atheistic in outlook, the Yoga system recognizes God. His grace is obtained by intense devotion, and this grace helps the seeker to attain Samadhi. Patanajali has described God as purusha visesha (a special type of soul) who, unlike other souls, is ever free from afflictions (karma) and their binding effects (Yogasutra I.23-24). The Bhagavad Gita affirms such deliverance in the words of Sri Krishna Himself. There He says that He would deliver those who depend on Him from the ocean of birth and death because they surrender all their actions unto Him and constantly meditate on Him with single-minded devotion (Gita XII-6 and 7). But devotion to God is not the only way to attain the goal of Yoga
