‘Food Security’ of Birds & Animals

Recently Indian government passed “National Food Security Act” which aims to provide food grains guarantee to all of the India's 1.2 billion people. Similarly World Health Organization (WHO) in its World Food Summit has defined “Food Security” as existing “when all people on this earth, at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”. So basically it has been thought by the Governments & Organizations around the world that all humans on earth should have ‘Food Security’ at all times till they live on this Earth.

Now just look around your house, near trees etc. & see how many birds live on these trees? Similarly just imagine, how many insects, animals etc. live near your place. In fact if you just calculate, all these birds, animals, insects etc. living in places around your house are much much more in numbers than humans living around you. If there are around 7000 Million humans living on this earth then there are many many times more, birds, animals, fishes, insects etc. living on this earth. In fact al these species are so much in number that we cannot calculate their number.

Now who provides ‘Food Security’ at all times to all these innumerable numbers of birds, animals, fishes, insects etc. on this earth? No Government or Organization on this earth ensures that all these species living on this earth get ‘Food Security’ at all times while they live on this earth. Then who in this universe is ensuring that all the species born on this earth get enough food daily till they live on this earth in their lifetime. Are you not amazed, how these infinite species are getting their food sustenance on this earth. Who is ensuring & providing daily food to all these species?

In fact “Almighty God” & all powerful Lord who has Created all these infinite number of species is only Sustaining all of them. God only is providing daily food to all these species. God only is ensuring ‘Food Security’ at all times while these species live on this earth. God only is the creator & sustainer of all these species on earth. So all these birds, animals, fishes, insects etc. living on this earth are sustained by God only.

God is all powerful. He is almighty. He is the Lord of the Universe. Oh Lord! You are the sustainer of all human beings & all species. Once Rukmani, wife of Lord Krishna asked Him to give her a proof that He as the Lord of the Universe is ensuring food to all the species born in this universe. On this Lord Krishna pointed to a stone & asked Rukmani, to bring that stone to Him. When she brought that stone, Lord Krishna asked Rukmani to break that stone. When she broke that stone, she found an insect sitting in that stone & that insect was having a piece of grain in it's mouth. On seeing this Rukmani praised Lord Krishna that really, as a Lord of all creatures, He is providing Food Security to all beings at all the times in this universe.

God also is the remover of the agonies & sorrows of His devotees. A devotee who is immersed in the devotion of the Lord reaps the fruits of Lord's love & blessings. Such a devotee enjoys the Joy, prosperity & health in life. God enters the home of such a devotee & always protects that person & his/her family.

Below are few verses of Bhagwat Gita in which God illustrates that He is the creator & Sustainer of all the Universes.

"yad yad vibhutimat sattvam
srimad urjitam eva va
tat tad evavagaccha tvam
mama tejo-’msa-sambhavam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 41)

"Sri Krishna said: Know that all opulent, beautiful and glorious Universes & creations spring from but a spark of My splendor."

"yac chapi sarva-bhutanam
bijam tad aham arjuna
na tad asti vina yat syan
maya bhutam characharam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 39)

"Sri Krishna said: Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all Universes & existences. There is no being—moving or nonmoving—that can exist without Me."

"aham atma gudakesha
aham adis cha madhyam cha
bhutanam anta eva cha" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 20)

"Sri Krishna said: I am the Super Soul, O Arjuna, seated in the hearts of all living entities. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings."

So let's all worship that almighty & all powerful Lord who is of the Creator & Sustainer of all Universes & all beings. He is called by different names in the world like, Rama, Krishna, Shiva, Allah, Jesus etc. So let's pray to that one God who is sustaining all of us.

Jai Shri Krishna
