Kalpa-vriksha which means “the tree which makes manifest whatever you imagine under it” clearly refers to the power or faculty of imagination which is the basis of all creative work. The wonderful achievement of modern Science in producing such a large number and variety of things by churning the Ocean of physical matter and force are possible because mankind has already evolved the faculties of desire and imagination to a high degree. When higher mental and spiritual faculties have been evolved it will be possible to churn the subtler realms of Nature and make manifest the Divinity which is present potentially in man.

This hymn throws light on the different aspects of Divine Power in its philosophical and religious aspects and raises the heart of the devotee to the highest state of exaltation. The tone of the hymn also shows that the attitude of the Devas had been raised from the personal to the universal level.
