However, less intelligent persons, without knowing this fact, worship demigods for temporary benefit. Therefore they fall down to material existence and do not achieve the desired goal of life. If, however, anyone has any material desire to be fulfilled, he had better pray for it to the Supreme Lord (although that is not pure devotion), and he will thus achieve the desired result. #/p# #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_24"#TEXT 24#/span##/h4# #div class="devanagari"# #dl##dd#अहं हि सर्वयज्ञानां भोक्ता च प्रभुरेव च ।#/dd# #dd#न तु मामभिजानन्ति तत्त्वेनातश्च्यवन्ति ते ॥२४॥#/dd##/dl# #/div# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#ahaṁ hi sarva-yajñānāṁ#/dd# #dd#bhoktā ca prabhur eva ca#/dd# #dd#na tu mām abhijānanti#/dd# #dd#tattvenātaś cyavanti te#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #p##i#aham#/i#—I; #i#hi#/i#—surely; #i#sarva#/i#—of all; #i#yajñānām#/i#—sacrifices; #i#bhoktā#/i#—the enjoyer; #i#ca#/i#—and; #i#prabhuḥ#/i#—the Lord; #i#eva#/i#—also; #i#ca#/i#—and; #i#na#/i#—not; #i#tu#/i#—but; #i#mām#/i#—Me; #i#abhijānanti#/i#—they know; #i#tattvena#/i#—in reality; #i#ataḥ#/i#—therefore; #i#cyavanti#/i#—fall down; #i#te#/i#—they. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# #p#I am the only enjoyer and master of all sacrifices.
