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

GOD says that those who are clever creatures with wisdom, the culmination of their intellect lies in the fact that they should attain GOD from their destructive and unreal human body. The creature is born in the world and attempts to achieve a lot. Though he acquires worldly things through his efforts, but all this is meaningless because he misses to attain GOD. He does not even try to attain GOD in his lifetime. We have got his human life only to achieve GOD.

Therefore attempts to attain GOD should be the biggest goal of our life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. The human body is best means provided by Almighty GOD to attain GOD.

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

GOD says that the one who self-surrenders to GOD, GOD gets very pleased with him. GOD frees him from all bondage and provides him salvation. GOD says that such a creature attains GOD and becomes united with GOD. Shelter of GOD and self-surrender before GOD is of great importance. When we become dependent and dedicated to GOD, then GOD accepts us. The shelter of GOD and self-surrender to GOD is the culmination of devotion. The creature should always attempt to reach this culmination by undertaking devotion.

Therefore the creatures should accept the shelter of GOD and offer a self-surrender to GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must take the shelter of GOD and make a self-surrender to GOD.

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

After listening to the detailed message of GOD, Shri Uddhavji folded his hands in greeting and fell in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD and asked Him what is GOD’s order for him now. GOD said to him to go to Badrikashram and reside there and to contemplate the teachings given by GOD by experiencing them thoughtfully. The thing to note here is that we should contemplate the preaching of GOD in solitude. We also listen to GOD’s preach in Srimad Bhagwat Geetaji and in other scriptures but forget them after listening to it. It is compulsory to contemplate and think about the preaching of GOD in solitude then only they show their effect and do our welfare.

The creature should not only listen to the teachings of GOD just for the sake of listening but contemplate them thoughtfully in solitude.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD’s teaching and preach must be contemplated thoughtfully in solitude.

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

After completing all the works of His pastime GOD finally decided to go back to His dwelling. When GOD left the earth then with GOD truth, religion, patience, glory and grandeur also went away. One principle is rendered from this fact that wherever GOD resides, virtues also resides there. Therefore if we want to bring virtues in our life then we have to bring GOD in our life. When GOD will come in our life by devotion then with GOD all virtues will also come as the shadow of GOD. There will be no other effort required to call those virtues.

Therefore there should be only one aim in life that by devotion GOD comes in our life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. If we bring GOD in our life through devotion, all virtues will automatically come in our life.

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

GOD Shri Shukdevji gave a detailed description of Kaliyug (modern era) in reply to the question of King Parikshit. Kaliyug will become such a huge burden because in Kaliyug neither there will be religion nor virtue will remain. In such situation to protect the religion and virtues, GOD will take incarnation. GOD is ubiquitous and Almighty. GOD is the true owner and protector of this world. Therefore GOD will take incarnation to protect sages and decent persons and will cut their bondage and set them free from the cycle of birth and death.

GOD always comes to protect religion because religion is dependent on GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD protects the religion and virtues in all eras.

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

As long as the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD Shree Krishnaji were on earth, Kaliyug (modern era) was not able to come on earth. When GOD will again take Shree Kalkiji incarnation in Kaliyug then Kaliyug will wind up and Satyug will begin. It renders a principle that till GOD resides on the earth, Kaliyug does not have any impact. The same principle also applies to our life that till we live in the contiguity of GOD, the defects of Kaliyug will not be able to affect us. As soon as we lose the contiguity of GOD, we will have the influence of Kaliyug’s defects.

Therefore to avoid the defects of Kaliyug in life, it is mandatory to remain in the contiguity of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must always remain in the contiguity of GOD so that virtues reside in us.

Praise of GOD is the destroyer of all the abominations. Therefore big saints and great people purify their voice by praising GOD. By praising GOD the creature gets ultimately blessed. Those who keep the unique loving devotion in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD, they should regularly listen and narrate the divine praise of GOD. Singing the praise of GOD is the surefire means to avoid the pitfalls of Kaliyug (modern era). When the devotion towards GOD arises in our heart then our heart automatically starts enjoying the praise of GOD.

The creatures should make a sequence of praising GOD and listening to the praise of GOD in their daily life.

GOD is the supreme Father of the whole world. GOD is the ultimate master of the whole world. By bowing down their heads in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD, all dedicate their everything to GOD. After dedicating his everything to GOD a creature gets blessed. GOD’s grandeur is infinite. We cannot even imagine the grandeur of GOD. Therefore, we must dedicate our everything to such a supreme Father and ultimate master whose grandeur is infinite. But we will only be able to do so after the awakening of devotion inside us.

Therefore the creature must dedicate his everything to GOD by awakening the devotion towards GOD in his heart.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must surrender our everything to GOD who is our supreme Father.

At the time of death, if the creature is able to pronounce the name of GOD then he becomes free from all his deed bondages and attains the best position. But for doing so we have to practise pronouncing GOD’s name from starting. It is not possible that suddenly at the time of death the creature can pronounce the name of GOD. But the one who chant the name of GOD from starting, for him this becomes possible.

Therefore the creatures should practice pronouncing the names of GOD since his early life, so that he can succeed in doing so at the time of death.

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

There are many flaws in Kaliyug (modern era). In Kaliyug there is place defect, there is thing defect and on top of all there is defect in creature’s conscious. But when GOD comes and resides in the heart by devotion then because of the contiguity of GOD all the flaws are destroyed immediately. GOD comes and resides in the creature’s heart because of listening, chanting, contemplating and worshipping GOD’s form, quality, pastime and name. When this happens, the creature retires from all the faults of Kaliyug. Also, what is the matter of the sin of one or two births, GOD also destroys the heap of sins of thousands of births. As soon as GOD resides in the heart of the creature, all the inauspicious things of Kaliyug are eradicated forever.

Therefore the creature must bring GOD in his heart by taking the shelter of GOD’s devotion.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD eradicates the heap of sins of thousand of births of a creature in a split moment.

GOD Shri Shukdevji says that from studies, austerity, pranayama, pilgrimage, fasting, donation and chant etc, by any means, there is no such purification of the heart of the creature that happens automatically when GOD resides in his heart. The simplest means of enabling GOD reside in the heart is the devotion of GOD. When GOD resides in the heart of the creature due to devotion, then the soul of that creature gets completely purified. The heart of all devotees of GOD is pure because they take the shelter of devotion and get success in making GOD reside in their heart.

Therefore the creatures must try to make GOD reside in their heart by undertaking devotion in life.

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

Though Kaliyug (modern era) is filled with big flaws. But a very important merit of Kaliyug is that in Kaliyug it is very easy to attain GOD. In Kaliyug only by chanting the name of GOD we can attain GOD. It is so because in the flaws of Kaliyug it is very difficult to do meditation, Yagna, service and worship of GOD, therefore only and only by chanting the name of GOD we get such result which we attain in other era by performing big means. In Satyug the mean to attain GOD was the mediation of GOD, in Treta it was worshipping of GOD by performing big Yagna and in Dwapar the means was ritually performed service and worship of GOD.

Therefore after getting birth in Kaliyug we should undertake the simple mean and should keep an aim to attain GOD in life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. In the modern era the means to attain GOD is kept very simple and easy.

GOD is the only shelter for all creatures. GOD is the shelter of all the powers also. It is not possible for anyone to completely describe the pastime narration of GOD. Any deity or scripture is unable to fully describe the pastime of GOD. GOD Shri Shukdevji says that in SriMad Bhagwat MahaPuran he has described the GOD’s pastime in much brief because to completely describe the pastime narration of GOD is not possible even for him. GOD’s pastimes are infinite therefore whatever description we find in the scriptures is only in brief.

That is why we should firmly endorse the fact in our heart that the pastimes of GOD are infinite and whatever we hear is merely a brief description of them.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. No one can sing the complete glory of GOD and no one can completely describe the pastime narration of GOD because they are infinite.

When Shri Markandeya Muni saw that GOD has pleasingly come to give him vision then he respectfully stood up and greeted GOD by lying down on the floor. He was so thrilled by the vision of GOD that his entire pores and all senses were spirited. His body became blithe, tears started splashing from his eyes, which blocked his eyesight vision. He bowed his all organs in front of GOD and welcomed GOD with his joyful voice. He offered a seat to GOD, washed the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD and worshipped GOD. While doing so he was feeling like GOD is showering His grace on him.

There is no such place where GOD is not there. GOD is in all Form means in everyone’s form GOD is there. Other than GOD there is nothing in this world. GOD is world master means the first master of this world is GOD. GOD is master of all the masters. GOD must be worshipped supremely means GOD is the most appropriate to worship. Nobody is worthy of worship except GOD. GOD is pure form means GOD is the only one who is pure in this world.

Shri Markandeya Muni visualized GOD everywhere. He visualized GOD in the fire, in sun, in the moon, in water, in the earth, in the air, in the sky and even in his heart. The entire world appeared to be Godly to him. He visualized GOD everywhere and worshiped GOD only by the mental things. It is a very high position of devotion that we can visualize GOD everywhere and we become capable of the mental worship. It is a much higher position that a creature becomes capable to do the mental worship of GOD instead of worshipping Him with the worship material.

The person who achieves such a high status of devotion becomes blessed.
