Jayapataka Swami: You say, I do not know still if I have some trouble or need something? Should I pray to the Lord for the same? I don’t understand the question. You first say, I don’t know if I need anything, should I pray to Kṛṣṇa for that? If you don’t know, how do you pray? and Lakṣmī said, anyway even if you knew, since Kṛṣṇa is the Supersoul, He knows everything, about what we want, what we need. So, we don’t have to bother Him, telling Him we need this and that. He can naturally fulfill what we need, but if you don’t know what you need, how can you ask anyway? But even if you knew or think you know, Kṛṣṇa knows better than you, what you need. There is an example where one may say, I want ten thousand rupees. He gets it and ‘it’s not enough’. Then he says, “I want a lakh of rupees”. Sure enough. But he cannot buy a car. “I want a crore of rupees”. So, he goes again and again to Kṛṣṇa. He says that this person needs 3 crores, if I give him 3 crores now, he will get detoured. So first of all, “I will purify him and build him up. Then give him the three crores!” So that is the difference between Kṛṣṇa and other devas. Devas might give whatever we ask. But that may not be enough. Then we go again and again to bother. But Kṛṣṇa knows what we need, we don’t have to ask for anything. We rather try to please Him, and he will give us what we need, better not to want anything material.
