GOD says that the creature should always be dependent on GOD. There should not be any bigger aim of the creature than surrender to GOD. We should undertake the religion, deeds and wealth only for GOD. The creature who is able to do so achieves the loving devotion of GOD. Devotion is that means which leads us to GOD and brings us into His shelter. GOD immediately adopts the person who takes the shelter of GOD by devotion and becomes dependent on GOD while living in the world.

Therefore the creature should take the shelter of GOD by undertaking His devotion.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD said the above words to Shri Uddhavji.

GOD says that devotion comes from Satsang (Religious discourse). When we listen about devotion in Satsang then love towards GOD arises in our heart. Then we are attracted towards GOD and we try to achieve GOD through devotion. When we achieve the devotion of GOD then we start worshipping GOD. When we continuously walk on the devotional path we start experiencing the contiguity of GOD. Devotion teaches us to visualize GOD everywhere. A true devotee views GOD in all living and non-living things. The devotee views the world as full of GOD.

Therefore a creature must undertake devotion and achieve the contiguity of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. A devotee visualizes GOD everywhere.

Shri Uddhavji asked GOD that what are the characteristics of a devotee then GOD told him several characteristics. Among those, one characteristic is that the devotees only trust GOD. A devotee has tremendous faith on GOD. Even in the biggest calamity, his faith from GOD never diminishes even slightly. It is common among all the devotees that they trusted only GOD. They considered the world for the sake but as a giver, they always saw GOD. The one who trusts only GOD, GOD does everything for him. GOD showers His grace and mercy on such devotees forever.

Therefore the creatures must keep trust only and only in GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

The devotee should see that his attention should never divert from GOD. The one who continuously contemplates GOD is dear to GOD. The devotee should dedicate whatever he receives to GOD and then accept it as an offering from GOD. Devotees must always dedicate all the things to GOD. The devotee should create a relationship with GOD and should do his self-surrender to GOD.

Doing self-surrender to GOD is the matter of pride for a devotee.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD said the above words to Shri Uddhavji.

GOD says that the creature should dedicate the one thing to GOD which he loves most. The creature comes in this world and slowly he gets trapped in the fascination of different things. Some things are very dear to him and he cannot imagine his life without them. True devotion is that GOD should be most dear to us and we must happily dedicate our dearest thing to GOD. When GOD observes that we have dedicated our dearest thing to Him, He becomes happy. It is our submission to GOD that other than GOD nothing is dear to us. Then GOD graces us and makes our dearest thing infinite times more fruitful.

Therefore the creature must dedicate his dearest thing to GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Nothing in the world should be dearer to us than GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD said the above words to Shri Uddhavji.

In this verse GOD has stated the glory of Satsang (Religious discourse). Satsang destroys all the indulgence of this world. GOD is not as pleased with yog, religiousness, self-study, austerity, sacrifice, fasting, charity, yagna, pilgrimage and rules as He is with Satsang. GOD says that it is not related to one era, it is applicable on all era’s. By Satsang even demons, monsters, animals, birds, human beings, and people of Rajoguni and Tamoguni nature have also achieved GOD. GOD has given a long list of those who have achieved GOD through the influence of Satsang. After giving the list, GOD said that there are many more who have reached GOD due to Satsang and have been blessed. With Satsang we can seek GOD with utmost ease.

The glory of Satsang is immense and the creature should take advantage of Satsang to engage his mind in GOD.

How much Gopis love GOD, GOD Himself describes this fact here in His words. GOD says that as the rivers lose their name and form after their union with ocean similarly Gopis even forgot their existence in the divine love of GOD. Gopis became so much rapt in GOD’s ultimate love that they even forgot this world, other world, body, husband and their son. Even after the separation from GOD, Gopis still contemplated GOD. GOD also remembered Gopis forever and was bonded in their love.

Devotee and GOD have such a relationship that devotee remains rapt in GOD and GOD remain rapt in the devotee.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

Similarly, there is no existence of this world without GOD but when the world is not there GOD alone leaves without the world also. This world is the form of GOD only because without GOD there is no existence of this world. Therefore scriptures and saints have seen this world full of GOD and in every living and the non-living thing they visualized GOD.

When Rajogun and Tamogun are decreased then the unrighteousness caused by them also gets ceased. Therefore we should only consume virtuous things so that it increases Satvgun. When Satvgun is increased then the creature receives the devotion of GOD. The tendency of devotion will only be upon increase of the Satvgun in the creature.

Therefore the creature must keep virtuous daily routine so that he can proceed on the devotional path.

GOD says that the seeker must try to engage his mind in GOD slowly and carefully according to his power and time. GOD says that while exercising like this, the seeker should not panic at his failures, but should engage himself in the same practice with more devotion. When we try to concentrate our mind on GOD, our mind runs towards the world. We should make effort to constantly pull our mind out of it and put it in GOD. Once the mind starts to rest in GOD, then the seeker will feel so much ecstasy that his mind will never go in the humdrum world again.

Therefore the practice of engaging the mind in GOD should be started as soon as possible.

GOD says that the devotee who has dedicated his heart to GOD in all ways, experiences ecstasy, which the desirous creatures cannot find in any way. Such devotees always experience the contiguity of GOD and experience complete satisfaction every time and for them, all the corners of this world are full of pleasures. GOD says that those devotees who have devoted themselves to GOD they even do not want the post of GOD Shree Brahmaji or the post king of Deities Shri Indraji. They neither have the wish to become an emperor nor do they want to become the owner of Rasatal which is even better than heaven. These devotees do not have the desire for accomplishments and even salvation.

GOD says that GOD loves such loving devotees so much that He even do not love His own soul that much.

Here GOD has stated with paramount importance the glory of devotees who are devoted to GOD. We cannot think ahead of the feeling that GOD has expressed in this verse for His devotees. How much GOD loves His devotees and how much He honors them, it is to be seen here. GOD says that those devotee who forgets everything and only and only remains absorbed in meditation and contemplation of GOD, GOD walks behind that devotee constantly. GOD walks behind them with the thinking that the dust of the feet of that devotee should fly on to GOD and GOD becomes pure. GOD is the true idol of pureness, and the deities and all the creatures of the universe are eager to achieve the dust of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. Even then, GOD expresses such emotion that reveals the glory of devotion.

GOD always gives a lot of honor to His devotee and there is no one else who is dearer to GOD than His devotee.

GOD has expressed how much change GOD’s devotion can bring in a creature in this verse. GOD says that the seeker who has just started walking on the devotional path and has not been able to win over his senses, worldly subjects pulls him again and again and attracts him. But if that seeker does not leave the devotional path and continuously proceed on that path, then he defeats the worldly subjects by the ever increasing devotion. Devotion is so much capable that the worldly subjects cannot attract the seeker undertaking devotion.

Therefore the creature must adopt devotion in life and turn his life towards GOD.

In this verse, GOD states the glory of devotion. GOD says that like the flaming fire burns a large pile of wood and converts it in ash, the devotion of GOD completely burns all the sins of the creature. The power of devotion is so great that the sins of the devotee are automatically destroyed and that soul becomes pure. This is because the devotion dedicates the devotee to the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD and it this is only possible when the soul becomes pure after getting rid of sin.

Therefore, in order to be free from sins and to gain the contiguity of GOD, we must undertake the devotion of GOD.

GOD becomes pleased so soon with daily increasing unique loving devotion that no other mean has such capability. Therefore, the means of devotion is best and superior to all other means. Therefore, we should keep devotion as the main means because devotion has the capability to attain GOD.

Therefore, the creatures must move forward on the devotional path and try to attain GOD in life.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD said the above words to Shri Uddhavji.

GOD says that the creature who undertakes devotion, he becomes free from the desires and attains GOD. As the devotion of GOD increases, so the dirt of the mind is washed away. Without devotion, our mind contemplates the subjects and our mind gets stuck in the subjects. But the person who contemplates GOD with devotion, his mind is absorbed in GOD. If that happens then the worldly subjects and desires cannot drag him towards them. The best means to be free from the worldly subjects and desires is the devotion of GOD.

Devotees are so much attracted towards GOD that the attraction of world becomes feeble for them.
