TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Kapilji said the above words to Mother Devhuti in his preach.

Here GOD renders a fact. GOD states that devotion is bigger than salvation.

Whose mind is engaged in GOD and who concentrates on GOD, devotion arises inside them. Devotion holds the highest place and it is much bigger than salvation. Salvation is assumed to be the maid of devotion. The true devotee automatically receives salvation, he doesn’t need to demand that. But a true devotee never demands salvation, they continuously seek only devotion because devotion gives ecstasy. To enjoy devotion, devotees reject salvation.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. True devotees only seek devotion.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Kapilji said the above words to Mother Devhuti in his preach.

GOD says that His true devote only demands His devotion. His devotee never demands salvation or supreme position. But the glory of devotion is so much that despite not seeking it, devotion automatically gives them the supreme position.

Devotees never need to ask or demand something. They automatically receive everything. This is an eternal principle.

So we should continuously engage our lives in GOD’s devotion and our effort should be regularly in that direction.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Kapilji said the above words to Mother Devhuti in his preach.

Those who have made the only GOD their everything and those who live in the shelter of GOD, those devotees go to the dwelling of GOD. There all the divine enjoyments are available to them, they are not devoid of divine enjoyments. Even Godstime wheel does not affect the devotees.

So we should try to make GOD everything in our life. Only GOD should be our teacher, father, friend, deity & everything. Those who have assumed GOD as their everything, they go to the dwelling of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. With GOD, we should keep all our relations.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Kapilji said the above words to Mother Devhuti during his preach.

One who leaves his body, wealth, house and other collections and does GOD’s worship and devotion, GOD let him cross the deathlike worldly ocean.

It is GOD’s swore to let the devotees cross the worldly ocean. GOD has rendered the same principle in his preach here.

Only GOD’s devotion is the sole resource that can help us in crossing the worldly ocean. Otherwise, we again get trapped in the cycle of birth and death. We have to come again in the world in the form of any species as per our deeds. GOD’s devotion is the only way to escape from this.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Kapilji said the above words to Mother Devhuti in his preach.

A principle is rendered here. Death is the greatest fear, everyone thinks so and that is why everyone fear death. GOD says that by taking shelter of GOD we cannot get freedom from this fear. There is no other way from which we can become free from this greatest fear of death.

By devotion of GOD fear of death goes away because a devotee knows that in his last time he will receive the company of GOD and he will be blessed.

So we should take shelter of GOD in our life and should practice devotion.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Kapilji gave the above preach to Mother Devhuti.

Knowledge and Reclusiveness are assumed to be the sons of Mother Devotion. So the devotion which contains Knowledge and Reclusiveness gives true peace. To achieve such peace Yogis take the shelter of divine lotus feet of GOD by devotion which contains Knowledge and Reclusiveness.

Saints says that peace resides in the divine lotus feet of GOD but we search it in this world where it is not available.

It is an eternal principle that we can achieve peace by taking the shelter of GOD by practicing devotion.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We can only achieve peace through devotion towards GOD.

GOD tells about the biggest achievement of human life. GOD says that man can do his biggest welfare only when he engages his mind in GOD by deep devotion.

To devote our Body-Soul-Wealth in GOD by devotion is the biggest achievement of human life. GOD renders this fact in the above verse.

So we should engage in GOD’s devotion in our life and should concentrate our mind towards GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - We should contemplate GOD recognizing him by the knowledge acquired by Devotion, Reclusiveness and Concentration of mind that GOD is in our soul.

GOD resides inside us in one form. We should search GOD inside us rather than outside. To search GOD we should become introvert. GOD appeared to devotee Dhruvji first time inside his soul and then when he opened his eyes he saw the same vision outside.

So we should contemplate GOD by recognizing that He is inside us.

Our mind is engaged in thinking about luxuriousness. Our mind thinks about this world and worldly subjects. GOD says that an intelligent person is one who engage his mind in GOD rather than in worldly things. The source to control the mind is intense devotion and reclusiveness from this world. GOD says that we can control our mind slowly by intense devotion and reclusiveness.

So we should practice devotion of GOD and engage our mind in GOD. This is the only source of success of Human life.

Those who have received enlightenment continuously engage their mind in GOD. As a sleeping person is never harmed by the dream he saw while sleeping similarly GOD says that those who have engaged their mind in GOD such self raising saints are never harmed by nature.

To engage the mind in GOD by the way of devotion is the best to escape from all the repugnance. But we engage our mind in this world and experience distress. All we have to do is to engage our mind in GOD. GOD had said to Shri Arjunji in ShriMad Geetaji that “Give your mind to Me (GOD)”.

We should always try to concentrate our mind in GOD by practicing devotion.

Here a fact is rendered that of whom we should meditate. GOD says that we should consider GOD in the form of a statue in front of us and meditate on Him. We should meditate on the face, eyes, body, hands and divine lotus feet of GOD. We should meditate on each and every divine organ of GOD. Every organ of GOD is so pleasant that we should only meditate on them one by one.

The clue is that only GOD is meditable so devotees should meditate only on GOD.

Two facts are remarkable here. First, GOD is eager to bless His devotees. It is GOD's nature to bless devotees. When we approach GOD we are sure to receive His blessings. As it is true that the Sun will give shine similarly it is true that GOD will give His blessings. All we need to do is to reach Him by devotion.

Secondly, GOD is not only worshipped in this world, but He is worshipped in this entire universe. GOD is worshipped in every planet and in every era at all times. Only GOD is worshipped everywhere. GOD’s glory is spread over the entire universe. So He is worshipped continuously everywhere. We should also devote our life by worshipping GOD. We should develop a habit of worshipping GOD in our life.

It is said to meditate on the eyes of GOD and the glory of GOD’s eyes is also described here. GOD’s eyes are meditable and they shower love and blessing. As we meditate on the divine eyes of GOD, the love and blessing increases every moment. Visualizing the eyes of GOD calms all the three fires of devotees.

So by the mean of meditation we should visualize the divine eyes of GOD. When we go to temple, we should visualize the eyes of GOD. Visualizing them is blissful in all ways.

Our mind is always eager to see the world but by means of meditation we should intake the image of GOD in our heart so that the wish of visualizing this world dies down.

In this world it is only GOD of whom we should meditate and visualize so we should never wish to visualize any other thing other than GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Kapilji gave the above preach to Mother Devhuti.

GOD has told three categories of devotees. The individual who loves GOD by keeping the feeling of anger, violence and arrogance is a Tamas Devotee. The individual who worships GOD by wishing for worldly attachments, fame and grandeur is a Rajas Devotee.

But the individual who worships the GOD to decay his sins and assumes worship to be his duty is a Satvik devotee meaning Best devotee. We should worship GOD by becoming platonic, we should assume so that it is our duty to worship GOD. Whatever deeds we do for GOD, we should dedicate such deeds to GOD.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We should worship GOD as a duty.

GOD says that as the flow of Shri Gangaji (Holy river of India) flawlessly goes towards the ocean, similarly those who only listens to the qualities of GOD their mind gets attracted towards GOD. They start loving GOD platonically and exclusively. These are the symptoms of devotion.

Loving GOD platonically and exclusively is the superiority of devotion. Platonically means loving GOD without any desire. We should love GOD platonically without desiring money, son, grandchildren, pleasure and wealth. Secondly, exclusive love means loving only and only GOD with full immersion. If devotion is true, platonicity and immersiveness both involves automatically in GOD’s love.

GOD defines the superiority of the platonic devotee that he wants nothing other than GOD’s service. He refuses to reside in the dwelling of GOD, when given the opportunity. He refuses even GOD like luxury, GOD like beauty and even refuses salvation, when offered.

Platonic devotion is the best devotion. After reaching there no wish remains from GOD, only GOD is sought from GOD. Those who have achieved GOD has achieved Him because of platonic devotion.

Platonic devotee wishes only GOD and GOD’s service. The life in which platonic devotion enters that life is blessed.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Kapilji gave the above preach to Mother Devhuti.

The entire world is full of GOD. We should visualize GOD in every creature. Sri Tulsidasji has written in Shri Ramcharitmanas that he feels entire world full of Shri Ram. Saints has visualized the World Owner (GOD) in the world. Sri Prahladji (Great devotee) visualized GOD in a Pole and GOD appeared from the Pole. GOD resides in all living and non-living things.

GOD says that who does not believe this and only visualize GOD in idols is like doing Havan (offering prayers to GOD in front of the fire) from ash.

So we should feel GOD everywhere, then only we should assume that our devotion is proven.

GOD says that we should perform religious rituals and idol worship till such time when that soul is not able to visualize GOD in his heart and in every creature.

The aim of religion and aim of worship is that we should be able to visualize GOD in our heart and in every creature of this world. Saints have visualized GOD in every living and nonliving particle. The entire world is full of GOD and He even resides in our heart also. When these two things are proved, a devotee gets blessed. So visualizing GOD in our heart and in every creature, must be our aim.

All the scriptures say that human life is very rare. Here GOD himself renders this fact that Human life is best. After taking birth in all species we get birth as a human. So we should utilize our human life in achieving GOD by practicing devotion.

GOD says that the plants of botany hold fruits, flowers and medicine timely because of fear of GOD. Because of GOD’s glory rivers flows and ocean lives in its limit. Because of GOD’s fear fire lightens and the mountains and earth, does not sink in the water.

The basic thing is that everything is in the control of GOD and all things are managed by GOD.
