Prabhutah: One who is endowed with wisdom, greatness and Knowledge

The Supreme Lord Krishna is known as Sat-Cit-Ananda where Cit means Knowledge.

sac-cid-ānanda-maya haya īśvara-svarūpa tina aṁśe cic-chakti haya tina rūpa (CC Madhya Lila 6.158)

The Supreme Personality of Godhead in His original form is full of eternity, knowledge and bliss. The spiritual potency in these three portions (sat, cit and ānanda) assumes three different forms.

One who is affluent, ever-full, and well-endowed with wisdom, greatness, and other qualities.

sarvasya cāhaṁ hṛdi sanniviṣṭo mattaḥ smṛtir jñānam apohanaṁ ca
vedaiś ca sarvair aham eva vedyo vedānta-kṛd veda-vid eva cāham (BG 15.15)

I am seated in everyone’s heart, and from Me come remembrance, knowledge and forgetfulness. By all the Vedas, I am to be known. Indeed, I am the compiler of Vedānta, and I am the knower of the Vedas.

The Supreme Lord is so full that for the deliverance of the living entities,  He is the supplier and digester of foodstuff, the witness of his activity, and the giver of knowledge in the form of the Vedas and as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Śrī Kṛiṣhṇa, the teacher of the Bhagavad-gītā. He is worshipable by the living entities. Thus God is all-good; God is all-merciful.

So not only does a living entity enjoy or suffer in this world according to the dictation from the Supreme Lord situated locally in the heart, but he receives the opportunity to understand the Vedas from Him. If one is serious about understanding the Vedic knowledge, then Kṛṣṇa gives the required intelligence.

The Supreme Lord in His avatar of Lord Hayagreeva saved the Vedas and hence He is known as the giver of Knowledge.

Jnananandamayam devam nirmala sphatikakrutim,
aadharam sarvavidyaanaam Hayagreevamupasmahe.

I worship Lord Hayagreeva, who is the very form of knowledge, pure as a crystal, and who is the support of all knowledge.

He is known as Vaagishwara, the Lord of Speech. Anyone who wishes to advance in knowledge should pray to Lord Hayagreeva.

Lets chant the Holy Name of the completely Knowledgeable Lord and ask for that Real Knowledge to be given to us, which is to understand Him and give us the proper wisdom to use all our resources in his Devotional service always. May we be bestowed with that knowledge which is Real and leads us towards the Supreme Lord always.
