Guhan (though Sri Ram endorsed Guhan as brother in Kamba RamayaNam) Valmiki writes
RAmasya Athma Sama SaKhA
Guhan is an Athma level equal friend to Sri Ram
Bhakthi requires submissive nature.
Friendship requires equality (Samathvam) nature
Athma “Sama” SaKhA because friendship demands equality
How come Friendship with VishNu is submission (Bhakthi rooopaapanna gyAnam?)?
When we consider Vishnu as my friend, we consider equal to him.
Samathvam vs Bhakthi?
How Samathvam is equated to Bhakthi by PrahlAdhan?
