We find several similar evidential examples in the Itihāsas and the Purāṇas, as well. The conclusion that comes out of these is that, one must establish an intimate connection with the Supreme Self (Paramātmā), that is the abode of all (sarvādhiṣṭhāna), the all-powerful (sarvaśaktimān), ordainer and controller of the world (jaganniyantā), by seeing that It alone pervades all that is moving and unmoving (animate and inanimate, sentient and insentient).
By means of upāsanā prescribed in the scriptures, one becomes unified (devoid of any difference or separation) with the Supreme Essence, thereby mastery over the material elements — fire, water, air etc. — is naturally established, and by gaining authority over the threefold course of movement in time viz. past, future, present, one attains to Lordship over the whole of creation.
