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

GOD defines the senses of the soul as evil because it never gets satisfied. GOD says that the creature who wants his self-welfare should never enjoy the pleasures of his senses. As much as we enjoy pleasures from the senses, the craving increases and our senses remain insatiable. The correct use of senses is to divert them towards GOD. When we divert our senses towards GOD then they automatically retreat from pleasures. There is no other way to remove our senses from the subjects. For example, the duty of our ears is to hear. But if they do not listen to the useless things of the world, and instead listen to the praises of GOD, then they will never be interested in the talks of the world.

The true achievement of human birth is that the creature puts all his senses in the service of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must employ all our senses in the service of GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Shukdevji said the above words to King Parikshit.

We hear a lot from our ears. But in reality, the only thing to hear is the narration of GOD’s pastime. Other than the narration of GOD’s pastime and the praise of GOD whatever we listen is a waste. The one who starts getting interest in the narration of GOD’s pastime and the praise of GOD will not be interested in waste worldly discussions. The person who listens to the narration of GOD’s pastime and praise of GOD, with a true heart, blesses himself. The second thing that has been said in the verse is that only GOD is the provider of love and salvation. Those who love GOD, GOD give them the gift of His supernatural love.

Therefore the creature should love GOD so that his liberation from the worldly cycle becomes possible.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. If we love GOD, He will give us a gift of His supernatural love.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD told the history of a Brahmin of Ujjain to Shri Uddhavji.

The Brahmin of Ujjain had a lot of money which was destroyed. Because of this, he became reclusive from the world and he dedicated his remaining life to GOD. The ultimate result of charity, observance of religion, rule, the study of Vedas, good deeds, celibacy etc is that our mind should be able to fully concentrated on GOD. Putting the mind in GOD is the greatest victory of the mind because the nature of the mind is that it longs for the world and when it gets a chance it runs towards the world. Therefore the mind should be pulled from the world and must be concentrated on GOD.

The creature who puts his mind in GOD, he becomes very dear to GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should pull our mind from the world and focus it on GOD.

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

Here GOD tells us what kind of world people get from performing which deeds. Here GOD clearly states that only by devotion the creature can attain the supreme dwelling of GOD. Only devotion has the capability to ensure the supreme dwelling of GOD for the creature. By other means, a creature can attain other worlds but the supreme dwelling of GOD is only and only achievable through devotion. Therefore after getting birth as a human, the creature should undertake devotion of GOD in his lifetime, so that he can get the contiguity of GOD in life and in the end he can attain the supreme dwelling of GOD.

We should make the goal of achieving the supreme dwelling of GOD in life and should try in this direction.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Only devotion can lead us to the supreme dwelling of GOD.

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

GOD says that when the creature worships GOD selflessly, he should be considered as virtuous. When there is the primacy of virtue in the creature then he is attracted towards GOD. Because of virtue only, the creature wants to come in the contiguity of GOD. GOD’s selfless devotion is the indicator of an increase in virtue. The creature should continuously undertake the devotion of GOD so that his virtue can increase. Increase in virtue diverts the creature towards GOD and blesses him. Virtue is the means to attain GOD.

Therefore the creature should continuously try in this direction that there should be the primacy of virtue in life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Virtue increases in the creature who undertakes the devotion of GOD.

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

GOD says that when the person practices the religion and dedicates his deeds to GOD and performs his deeds with selflessness then that deed becomes a devotional deed. We should take special care of the fact that our deed should be religious. Second thing, our every deed should be dedicated to GOD. We must be cautious that there should be no such deed in our life which we have not dedicated to GOD. Third thing, our every deed should be for the happiness of GOD and should be selfless. No selfishness should be linked to our actions.

GOD is pleased with the devotional deeds performed by the creature, so the creature should always perform devotional deeds.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must dedicate our selfless deeds to GOD.

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

GOD says that the creature can attain salvation through devotion. The most accessible means of attaining salvation is the devotion of GOD. On the strength of devotion, the creature becomes eligible for salvation. Devotion has the capability to lead us towards salvation. The creature is born in innumerable species in the world and attains death. This cycle of birth and death continues. But after getting birth as a human being, the creature who undertakes devotion of GOD obtains the salvation post and forever becomes free from the cycle of rebirth.

Therefore the person who desires to escape from the worldly cycle and desires salvation should undertake devotion of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Devotion towards GOD leads us to salvation.

GOD says that getting the human body is very rare. After wandering in several species we get this rare human body. It is GOD’s great grace that the creature is born as a human being. Therefore, the human body should never be wasted in vain. This human body is most suitable for undertaking means of attaining GOD. No means is possible from another body in any other species. Therefore GOD says that the intelligent creature should use the human body in undertaking devotion of GOD.

The best use of this human body is to undertake devotion of GOD from this human body.

GOD says that the thoughtful creature should keep his life equipped with Satogun (virtue) by great caution. They should keep the primacy of Satogun in their life and should win over Rajogun and Tamogun. The thoughtful creature should control their senses and engage them in GOD. The best use of our senses is that we should serve GOD by them. The creature should undertake the devotion of GOD by keeping the primacy of Satogun and keeping his senses in control.

The creature who is engaged in the devotion of GOD attains GOD.

GOD says that the human body is the main means of attaining GOD. Only by means of the human body, we can attain GOD. It is not possible to attain GOD from any other body other than the human body. Therefore, the person who undertakes devotion of GOD with a true love after receiving human body achieves the pleasure form of GOD. The creature should make the right use of the human body only to attain GOD. If we have acquired anything else by acquiring the human body, then it is secondary because our main objective after receiving the human body must be to attain GOD.

Therefore the creatures should try to attain GOD through the means of devotion from this human body in life.

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

GOD says that saint persons never expect anything. They can do so because their mind is engaged in GOD. When we give GOD the place in our mind, then there is no vacancy for any other subject matter. GOD is hidden in our heart, but when the GOD appears in our heart due to devotion, the subjects and the desires disappears from our heart. Then our heart is filled with supreme peace and we can always visualize the presence of GOD every time and everywhere in all.

The hidden GOD appears in our hearts by devotion and gives us ecstasy.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

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

In this verse, GOD explains the importance of His narrations. GOD says that the narration of GOD is ultimately beneficial for the creatures. Listening to the narration of GOD leads us to visualize the nature, effect, grandeur, mercy, kindness and compassion of GOD. When this happens, the natural love for GOD awakens within us. The awakened love for GOD leads us to the path of devotion that leads towards GOD. Those who listen to the narrations of GOD, all their sins and worldly distresses are destroyed. One who listen or sing the pastime narration of GOD, he becomes of GOD and a unique loving devotion for GOD awakens inside his heart.

Therefore the creature should make the rule of listening to the narration of GOD in life.

GOD says that the person who has attained the devotion of GOD has become a saint. After getting devotion, there is nothing left for him to achieve in the life. There is no bigger achievement for a creature than achieving the devotion of GOD. Whatever the world gives us or whatever we earn in the world are all secondary because the devotion of the GOD is paramount. Getting the devotion of GOD is the biggest achievement in this world because the devotion of GOD leads us to attain GOD. Therefore the devotion is the highest achievement.

After getting the human birth, the creature should keep the paramount aim of achieving the devotion of GOD in his life.

There is a detailed legislation in the scriptures for the worship of GOD for fulfilling desires. For ritualism also there is big legislation. But GOD says that those who are selfless devotees of GOD if they worship GOD even by their feeling then too GOD happily accepts it. The selfless devotees can please GOD by worshiping GOD in their heart. GOD is very accessible to the selfless devotees and gets pleased by them very soon. Selfless devotion is the paramount means. By selfless devotion, we can please and achieve GOD very soon.

Therefore the creature must undertake selfless devotion of GOD and must please GOD.

GOD reveals the importance of reverence and devotion in this verse. GOD states this fact here that how easily He gets pleased with reverence and devotion. GOD says that when a devotee offers water to GOD by keeping devotion in his heart then GOD accepts it with great love. On the other hand, if any non-devotee of GOD even offers a lot of material without any reverence, then GOD is not satisfied with it. The live example of this is that GOD ate the banana peel offered by Viduraniji and rejected Chhappan Bhog (fifty six type of delicious eatable items) of Duryodhana because Viduraniji had an immense reverence for GOD which was absolutely not there in Duryodhana.

Therefore we should keep unlimited reverence and devotion for GOD.

We should listen to the pastime narration of GOD and even narrate it to others also.

By forgetting the interruption of the world, if we become rapt in GOD, then only our life will be successful.

GOD says that we must praise and worship GOD by the psalms made by sages, saints and devotees. By lauding GOD with psalms we praise GOD which leads to our ultimate welfare. We must pray to GOD that He should be pleased with us. When GOD gets pleased with any creature than that creature experiences bliss and bliss. We must pray to GOD that we achieve the grace of GOD. We must remain in GOD’s vision and GOD’s grace is always available to us, such efforts should always be made by the creature. We must greet GOD by completely lying on His feet. The more we bow to GOD, the more we will rise in the world.

Praising GOD, praying to GOD, receiving the grace of GOD and bowing down to GOD, all these are a part of devotion and one should adopt them in his life.

This is one of my favorite verse because here self-surrender is rendered. GOD says that the creature should bow his head in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD and should pray to GOD to please rescue him from drowning in this worldly ocean. We must pray to GOD that in this worldly ocean death form crocodile is always behind the creature and can catch the creature anytime. We must pray to GOD that the creature surrenders to GOD after being frightened by this adversity. No other can protect the creature from this adversity, therefore, we should pray GOD to protect us.

By accepting the protection of GOD, we can become rest assured because GOD accepts our full responsibility.

Here GOD renders the selfless devotion. GOD says that those who worship and pray to GOD selflessly they achieve the devotion of GOD. When we remain selfless in our worship and prayer then GOD gives us the donation of devotion which is the biggest of all donations. There is no bigger donation than devotion which a creature can receive. Donation of devotion is the biggest donation given by GOD but we can get it only when we remain selfless. When we are full of desires then GOD fulfills our wishes but when we remain selfless then GOD gives us the donation of devotion. GOD says that after getting the donation of devotion a creature can achieve GOD by devotion.

Therefore the creature should always keep the objective of achieving the selfless devotion of GOD in life.

As the devotion arises inside us, our disorders start getting destroyed.

If we want to remove our disorders then we have to achieve the contiguity of GOD.

GOD says that like the fruit of a tree, the destruction of the human body is also inevitable. GOD says that even after continuous yog practice for many days we cannot save the end of the body. Therefore, the most meaningful use of the human body is that it should always be used only for the attainment of GOD. The human body is the best tool provided by the GOD to attain GOD. Therefore, the wise man should keep the attainment of GOD as the goal of his human body.

Even after getting human body if we have not attained GOD then our birth as a human will be a waste.

Shri Uddhavji says that GOD gives everything to His dependents and who surrenders exclusive to GOD. GOD gives everything whatever is possible to his surrendered devotees. GOD loves His surrendered devotees very much and sacrifice everything for them. It is a different matter that true surrendered devotees of GOD do not take anything from GOD. GOD gives the donation of Himself to such selfless surrendered devotees. Therefore to accept the shelter of GOD is the biggest achievement of a creature. Upon accepting the shelter of GOD, GOD carries the entire obligation of that creature.

Therefore the creature should undergo a complete surrender to GOD and become assured in his life.

This verse is dear to me because a devotee's feelings is expressed here. Shri Uddhavji says to GOD that he not only worships the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD but he worships the Dust of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. His sense is that he does not have the eligibility to worship the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD, so he worships the Dust of Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. The result of worshiping GOD or the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD is multiple times but even if we worship the Dust of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD then too we will be blessed. Then there is nothing in this world that remains unavailable to us.

Therefore the creature should worship and devote himself to GOD to make his life blessed.

The creature cannot live without performing deeds in this world because every time some deeds are performed by him. In such situation, if every deed is performed for GOD and by dedicating it to GOD and by remembering GOD then it becomes the best deed.

We should undergo such practice in life that our every deed should be for GOD,
