Isvara the Lord, God, and Universal Soul
Pranidhanat by profound religious meditation, contemplation, prayer, renunciation of the fruits of actions
Or, the citta may be controlled by profound meditation upon God and total surrender to Him.
To contemplate on God, to give up one's self to Him, is to bring everything face to face with God. Pranidhana is the giving up of everything - one's ego, all good and virtuous actions, pains and pleasures, joys and sorrows, elations and depressions to the Universal Soul. By giving up the aspirer's ego is obliterated, and the grace of the Lord pours down upon him like torrential rain.
