TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Sri Gokaranji asked the councilors of The LORD as to why salvation was granted to Dhundhukari alone upon hearing the LORD’s tale and what was the reason of this bias when everyone heard the tale. The councilors of the Lord replied as above.

To know about this difference is important in this era (Kaliyug ) because, in this era this happens several times. We only listen to the LORD’s tale but do not hold it in mind, do not think of it, do not follow it in depth, hence it does not strongly get into our hearts and our effort thus goes in vain. Just like the knowledge which gets wasted when it is not acquired in a proper way. Just like whatever we listen, if not understood goes in vain. Just like prayer in which we do not have faith goes in vain. Just like the utterance of Holy chanting where we are not able to concentrate goes in vain.

We do not generate focus while acquiring spiritual knowledge, we do not focus while hearing the LORD’s tale, we do not generate faith in prayers, we do not concentrate during Holy chanting, therefore we do them in vain.

What a beautiful formula to be successful in the path leading us to the LORD has been revealed by the counsels of the LORD for the benefit of mankind through the tale of Sri Gokaranji and Dhundhukari.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. If we do not focus and concentrate in our spiritual endeavors , we will not be able to generate desired results from it. Our effort will therefore go in vain.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - See the wonderful results of devoutly telling and listening to GOD’s tale that GOD Himself appeared and by hugging Sri Gokaranji He removed the difference of creature and GOD. All the creatures of that village including dogs and pariahs attained salvation.

The first tale in which Dhundhukari attained salvation was also told by Sri Gokaranji and was listened by all but no one attained salvation because no one heard it with full devotion, full concentration and full faith. But in listening the tale second time no one made that mistake and so all attained salvation. All the animal species and even pariahs attained salvation.

The fact that faith and devotion in GOD automatically benefits number of people, is also exhibited in Sri Kevat context of Sri RamCharitManas. The merciful GOD automatically surmounted Kevat with his past and future generations. By interpreting that divine context and by visioning the mercy and grace of Almighty GOD, saints have stated that by the devotion of GOD, Kevat surmounted his past 21 and future 21 generations. Kevat only wished that GOD came to my ferry and so I can transport Him, similarly when I go to ferry of GOD, He should also transport me by His kind mercy. But GOD along with him transported his entire generations. The Formula is - As much as reverence, faith and devotion for GOD we have in heart, GOD’s grace gives us many many many times more auspicious results in life and afterlife.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We must hear the LORD’s tale with full devotion, full concentration and full faith in order to derive best results.
  2. The more faith, reverence and devotion we have for Almighty GOD, the more we are benefitted in life and in afterlife.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Prior to the beginning the GOD’s tale there is a law to praise GOD. The words of praise are so accurately and meaningfully selected.

We are sunk in worldly ocean and since we are subverted from the purpose of human life we are in poor condition. Even when we are carrying lots of funds and assets but we are poor because we have forgotten the aim of our human life.

Fascinating shark (crocodile) of deeds of this world is holding us. Attraction of worldly deeds has increased our engagement in earning money, increasing assets, increasing family and other likewise worldly activities. Our situation is also like Sri Gajendraji, who has lost the war of life with shark (crocodile) and now are on the stage of sinking. As GOD had given salvation to Sri Gajendraji, likewise GOD is also requested to give salvation to us. It is completely impossible to be free from the worldly ocean and fascination of deeds without the mercy and grace of Almighty GOD.

We should earn the mercy and grace of GOD by the means of devotion towards God, then only our human life will get success and afterlife will get salvation.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We have over-engaged ourself in worldly deeds and are trapped in worldly ocean and fascination of deeds. Only by earning the mercy and grace of GOD through devotion, can we fulfill our human life purpose and secure our afterlife.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - How meaningful facts that we often overlook.

While listening to GOD’s tales, psalms, hymns, and during chanting often we cannot forget the worries of this world, assets and children etc and cannot devote ourself to GOD by concentration of mind and therefore our efforts are not so fruitful.

The words of the prayer - “Tan man dhan sab kuch hai tera, tera tum ko Arpan kya lage mera” means body, heart and money is all yours, and what is yours is devoted to you, doing so costs nothing to me. We sing this prayer twice a day but it will be beneficial only when we will do like that. Above verse also supports devoting body and heart in GOD’s tale and listening to it with a pure heart (by discarding the desires and impurities of mind such as malice, pride, greed) which is considered to be most fruitful.

Whenever we are able to do like this in our life we definitely experience God’s companionship, mercy and grace. It's our fault that we cannot do this and that is why we miss the companionship, mercy and grace of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. If we are able to devote our mind, heart and body to GOD in devotion we will experience GOD’s companionship, mercy and grace in return.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD’s doors are always open for the salvation of the downtrodden, this fact is emphasized here. The world can close doors for downtrodden but GOD’s doors are never closed for them. GOD never closes His doors but we go astray, and go in the wrong direction and commits the crime of distracting ourself from GOD and His path.

Another thing, which is said is the receipt of imperishable fruit to downtrodden. Whatever we get in this world, can never be imperishable, it corrosion is natural. Only and only Almighty GOD is capable of giving imperishable fruit. We will get many parables in the GOD’s tales where GOD has donated imperishable fruit to His devotees. Sri Sudama Charitra is the live example of this.

The saints had interpreted that Sri Brahmaji wrote on the fate line of Sudamaji that “Sri (wealth) would decay” means wealth will never be with him, never stay with him. It happened so with Sudamaji that arrangement of two times food was not there, no roof was there at his home, clothes were rifted from so many places that one can forget the counting. But see the effect of GOD’s mercy that He inverted the fate line. GOD added in the words of Brahma that “Sri (wealth) would never decay”. Then with GOD’s inspiration, Sri Vishwakarmaji created Sudamapuri and Sudamaji received the wealth that never decayed.

We should always remember this golden example of GOD’s donation and should also remember that what Sudamaji did after achieving that much - GOD’s worship, chanting and service as he was doing earlier. This is the only way of continuing with the GOD’s mercy.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. Even if the entire world closed its door, GOD never closer His doors for the downtrodden at any time.
  2. Only GOD can reward us with imperishable donation. Whatever we receive from the world has to perish.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - The precious words of Vyasnandan (Son of Vyas) Yogeshwar (the one who sits in deep meditation) Sukhdev ji focuses that the LORD`s tales can only be tasted by the people living on Earth and nowhere else ( due to which even GODs of Heaven desperately wants to take birth on Earth).

Sukhdevji has therefore addressed the people living on Earth as “Bhagyawan” (Fortunate) and thus says that one should keep on tasting the LORD’S tales that glorifies the LORD. He adds that till the time one is alive, one should repeatedly listen to the LORD’s tales. Special emphasis has been laid upon the words- “Don`t leave it ever”.

The ocean of “Atamgyan” (Knowledge about soul), Vyasnandan (Son of Vyasji) Sukhdevji has obliged us all by emphasizing on the fact that would lead us to the path of welfare.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. People dwelling on earth has been called fortunate because they can hear the tales that glorifies the LORD. It has been emphasized that we must repeatedly listen to GOD’s tales till our last breath.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - When Vyasnandan (Son of Vyas) Yogeshwar (the one who sits in deep meditation) Sukhdev ji was singing the glory of SriMad Bhagwat Mahapuran, the LORD appeared with his counsels. Because of listening to LORD’s tales, all present got a vision of LORD which is so difficult to get. All were pleased and their delusion was destroyed. Then for the welfare of universe, Vyasnandan Sukhdevji established Devotion alongwith its sons Knowledge & Reclusiveness in the Holy Mahapuran once and for all. It is because of this that by practicing SriMad Bhagwatji the seeds of Devotion are shown in our heart and Divine knowledge ( the greatest of all knowledge) flourishes and temptation for the world is curtailed and reclusiveness sets in. And because of all this we become a true Vaishnava (disciple of LORD). The LORD also rests in the heart of the Vaishnavas.

This fact is also testified in another incident. Once Devarshi SriNaradji asked the LORD of a certain place (Golok, Saket, KsheerSagar) where the LORD dwells. In reply the LORD said that I always dwell in the heart of the devotees,as it is my permanent dwelling place.

Devotion makes us a true Vaishnava (disciple of LORD). It fills us with Vaishnava goodness. This Vaishnava goodness is most dear to the LORD. Sant Sri Narsiji had best portrayed the Vaishnava goodness in his immortal Bhazan (divine song) “ Vaishnava Jan To Tene Kahiye” . Mahatma Gandhi ( for whom in a tribute it was said that – generations to come will scarcely believe that such a superhuman in flesh and blood ever walked upon this earth ) who was a true Vaishnava loved this lyrics. Let us throw light on the Vaishnava goodnesss as described in Bhazan (divine song) “Vaishnava Jan To Tene Kahiye” –

He is Vaishnava
(1) who does philanthropy (human welfare) without any egotism (a) who knows the sorrow of people (b) who works to wipe out the sorrow (c) by doing so who do not generate any brag or arrogance
(2) who do not reprove anyone in the world
(3) who keeps his utterance and actions undisguised (without disguise)
(4) who looks to all being and living things with equal status
(5) who keeps his heart clear of any desires and fantasy
(6) who looks to other women as if he is looking to his mother
(7) who will not speak untrue words even with his tired tongue
(8) who will not touch other’s asset just as one does not touch burning coal for it will bring scar
(9) who will not indulge in temptation and illusions
(10) who practices true reclusiveness in his heart
(11) who will only and only sing the praise of Almighty GOD (will not sing praise of any earthly being)
(12) who keeps his heart clear of greed and evils
(13) who keeps his heart clear of ambitions, lust and anger

One who practices the above
(a) becomes so purifies as if all pilgrimages have come to reside in him
(b) one such person in the family redeems and uplifts the entire family with generations
(c) person with such Vaishnava goodness blesses the womb of his mother

Devotion has such great and infallible power that it fills our heart with the golden Vaishnava goodness which is so dear to the LORD.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Verse providing much solace to poor, distressed, trapped in illusion and people sinking in the worldly ocean. This Srigranth (SriMad Bhagwat Mahapuran) which have the capability of doing welfare of such people roars like a lion. By the roar of Lion, animals like sheep, goat and others run away. Similarly with the roar of Srimad Bhagwatji poverty, sorrow and illusion escape.

We only need to go to the shelter of the Srimad Bhagwatji - This Srigranth contains such magnificence and affordability that it empower our inner devotion and opens the door for a meeting with the LORD.

Here pay special attention on the word “elfin”. The illusion has been described as an elfin. But see our misfortune that because of this “elfin” we forget the aim of our human life which is to reach GOD by devotion.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We need to take shelter in the Holy Text as it repels poverty, sorrow & illusion and opens the gate for union with the Almighty GOD with its teachings of devotion.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Here two words are of special importance. First word “Bhavrog” (all diseases) - means all the diseases of this world. Not one disease, two diseases or some diseases but all diseases. Srimad Bhagwatji is the catholicon medicine of “Bhavrog” (all diseases).

Second word “Rambaan” (an arrow of LORD RAM) - means the arrow that can never fail. If it is fired, it will definitely destroy the target, no matter what the target is.

What a beautiful conclusion that this Holy Text it is the catholicon medicine which is able to defeat all the diseases of worldly ocean in Kalikal (modern era) just like “Rambaan” which defeats all that falls in its way. Srimad BhagwatMahapuran - A Catholicon medicine which never fails on worldly diseases.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - A verse which finishes the fear of hell immediately in one shot is very dear to me because it represents the power of devotion.

Sri Yamrajji ( the demigod of Hell) alerts his representatives that I owe the power to punish everyone but have no power to punish Vaishnavas (the followers of LORD) . What is its crux ? It is a provision that Sri Yamrajji punish us because of our crimes. If there is no crime then he cannot punish us. It is interpreted in SriMad Bhagwatji that GOD incinerate all crimes (of this life and past lives) of devotees in a moment.

LORD SRI RAMJI supports this fact in front of Vibhishan (Brother of Ravan) in his divine voice in this auspicious and immortal tetrastich in Sundarkand ( a chapter in Holy Ramayana) - “Sanmukh hoi jeev mohi jabhi, janam koti agh naasahi tabhi” meaning that the moment a creature surrender before me, I (the LORD) incinerates all his crimes & evil acts of umpteen births at that very moment.

As GOD mercifully incinerate the crimes of devotees, the punishment process of that crime automatically ends there. Now Sri Yamrajji cannot fire his Yamdand (weapon of Sri Yamrajji) on that devotee.

The above statement of Sri Yamrajji verifies the same fact in the above verse.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. When we surrender to Almighty GOD, He mercifully incinerates our crimes and evil acts of many births in a split second and therewith the punishment process of that crime or evil act automatically ends. Thus the fear of hell vanishes instantly.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - So many things about this verse of invocation are very dear to me. We will see it one by one.

GOD means who is responsible for the creation, operation and destruction. The English interpretation of the word GOD is G = Generator, O = Operator, D = Destroyer.

Who is not radical but is conscious, not dependent, but He is the light - GOD is in all of us in conscience form. But the creature is dependent, he is bounded but GOD is independent he is not bounded. Those creatures who are already dependent on each other i.e. one dependent cannot release other dependent. Only independent GOD can release dependent creature. GOD Himself is light, means He does not need light of others because he is the only source of all the lights.

About whom big-big scholars are also fascinated - lets leave aside big scholars, about whom Veda, Maa Saraswati, Devadidev Mahadev, Sankaadi Rishi also gets fascinates and calms down.

Because of His impact of illusion this false world is also looking true, only GOD is totally and utterly free from the illusion and illusionary works - None other is free from illusion. Deity, sages, seers, devotees are all trapped under the influence of Maya (illusion) at some moments and GOD’s grace and mercy had absolved them from it. If anyone is exceptionally free from this illusion then he was saved because of grace and mercy of Almighty GOD.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. GOD is the generator, operator and the destroyer.
  2. Creatures are dependent and only GOD is independent and therefore He only can release the dependent creatures.
  3. GOD is the only source of all illumination and lights.
  4. All creatures get trapped in worldly illusion only GOD is utterly free from it. It is only the grace and mercy of Almighty GOD which saves us from worldly illusion.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Here we get the interpretation of those who are the true lover of GOD. He who never gives up listening to the glorious tales of GOD are the true devotee. The best example is of Bhakt Shiromani Sri Hanumanji. When LORD Shriramji finally decided to go back to His own dwelling after completing the object of His incarnation, He prepared to take all the residents of Ayodhya along with Him but Sri Hanumanji requested LORD Shriramji to leave Him on the earth. When the LORD asked the reason, Bhakt Shiromani Hanumanji replied that He continually wants to imbibe the nectar of His Holy tales on earth.

Sri Hanumanji would always listen to Ramkatha (Tales of LORD ShriRam) while He Himself was a great character of that SriKatha (Holy tale). He has lively seen all the events described in the Holy tale and was also a character in it. But yet again His inner desire for listening to the tales of LORD again and again and constantly is still awake. This is the sign of a true devotee because while listening to the tales of GOD again and again we (devotee) experience new interpretations and new visuals. Saints always do so.

But in the mind of a normal creature the thought comes that I have listened to this tale once or twice and I know the story so why should I waste my time again and again.

Those creatures who feel like this should descend into the depth of the tale and should try to visualize the expressions because the LORD’s tale superbly excites His devotees. Each and every pore get blithe, vibrating pleasures in our heart rises. There is no other and greater source which provides divine excitement, vibration, rejoicing and make us holy. Neither in the past nor in the future a greater source than this is possible because GOD’s tale is the height of divine elated ecstasy.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

Pay special attention on some words. This Mahapuran (Great Mythological book) is very confidential and secret. This Mahapuran offers a direct experience of LORD’s appearance, and is the essence of the Vedas. It is a unique lamp which takes us out from the darkness of ignorance to the light of spiritual knowledge.

Every word of the verse is so very accurate and true - we automatically feel this while hearing the tale with true emotions.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Unique verse pointing towards the Bhagwat religion. Here we get the best interpretation of religion on the world scene.

Religion is that which enforces the devotion of GOD. Devotion which is selfless, ever and continuous. What is the result of such devotion - Real experience of delight nature of GOD in our heart, gratify the human life by direct vision of Almighty GOD. Union of “Jeev” and “SHIV” (creature and GOD) by the LORD’s audience is the true height of human life. ( How much money or reputation we earned in human life - is very minor and very dwarf standard to judge human life, which is prevalent in the present era. But in spirituality we will not get support for this parameter anywhere).

We do various religious rituals like yagna, narrations, chants etc but if they fail in attaining true affection towards GOD in our heart, or it fails in generating true loving devotion towards GOD, if those rituals does not blithe our pores then they are nothing more than the mere labor. Such rituals do not provide us with any special benefit.

Religious rituals should be done ontologically, purely, to generate loving devotional emotions towards Almighty GOD. It should not be done only as a mere routine activity. Only those rituals would prove to be beneficial and salutary if they are done with loving devotion towards Almighty GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - My favorite verse stating the source of enduring previous life’s accumulated Karmphal (opposite result of deeds done previously). The first thing that is mentioned here is knot of deeds are very hard. It is not possible to cut them by any other source or method. Discreet people cut this knot solely by “contemplating GOD”.

We will get these expressions in these lines of verse. “Contemplating (LORD) is my work, worrying (for me) is the work of GOD. If we contemplate the GOD by true heart HE takes the responsibility of our present, future and our previous life’s accumulated Karmphal (opposite result of deeds done previously).

Srimad Bhagwatji shows us the simplest way to be relieved, but if we do not follow it, do not contemplate GOD, do not hear the tales of GOD and the most important do not love GOD and have devotion for Him - we will continuously burn in the pyre of deeds. Such a person cannot be free from the boundation of the deeds, and because of it he will be engaged in the cycle of rebirth.

We have to cut the knot of the deeds by “Contemplation of God” to be free from birth cycle. This is the only way. Such a big secret has been revealed for the welfare of the public through the verse.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Here is a unique vision of Bhagvad theory. Hearing and chanting the glory of GOD makes us pure. If the heart is pure then God resides in the heart (GOD resides in each and every being but because of impure thoughts and behavior, GOD who is within us, is invisible to us). As the GOD dwells in heart, evil longings run away and holy thoughts and behavior automatically spreads inside us.

It is a divine theory that if the GOD resides in our heart then goodness automatically arises inside us and evils inside us automatically gets suppressed. In contrast when GOD is invisible from our heart then our goodness gets suppressed and evils are awakened. Saints has visioned this theory in the tale of appearance of LORD Sri Krishna. As the LORD appeared in jail in Mathura, bonds of Sri Vasudevji and Bhagwati Devki opened and Kansa's soldiers (Evils) went to sleep. As the LORD reached the Nand Bhawan and Sri Vasudevji came back with Maya (illusion), bondage again clinched him and the soldiers of Kansa got awakened.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - This verse states that by LORD’s loving devotion all the attachments of this world get destroyed, when the heart is filled with divine happiness then by GOD’s devotion we automatically experiences the GOD element. Pay special attention here that devotion is stated to be the source to destroy the worldly attachments. It is also stated that as our worldly attachments are destroyed, divine happiness spreads in our heart. But we search divine happiness in worldly attachments. How we can get a thing, where it is not available. Divine happiness and divine elated ecstasy can only and only be experienced in the element of GOD.

A legend heard by the saints is relevant here. All the qualities reside in divine feet of GOD. Once upon a time GOD lifted his divine feet and signalled all qualities to go on earth. Jagjanani Mata (Goddess) was sitting near by GOD, she saw that still something is struck under the divine feets of GOD. When she concentrated she came to know that divine happiness, tranquility and divine elated ecstasy are stuck to the divine feet of GOD. It meant that creatures can get divine happiness and tranquility if and only if they comes under the shelter of the divine feet of GOD. But when “divine happiness and tranquility” are not available on earth then how a man can achieve them here. But human is continuously searching these things in the wrong places (on earth) and is therefore wandering.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - This verse is very dear to me. It is a unique verse which opens mystery one by one. When we experience GOD in our heart at the same time all the misconceptions are removed, answers to all the questions are found, all doubts are cleared. Most importantly, all of our deeds boundations are emaciated. We cannot remove the boundations of our deeds on our own because as we do new deeds its boundation is ready at the same time.

It should be understood that Karma (deeds) and Karmabandhan (boundations of deeds) are born at the same time. When we do the deeds its boundation is ready. After being engaged in the boundation of deeds we continuously get involved in the cycle of rebirth. We endure our old deeds by taking birth, do new deeds in that life and again new boundations of deeds are ready for the next birth.

Doing deeds is the nature of the creature. He cannot leave without doing deeds. Doing deeds is also a religion compliant. Deeds are not prohibited anywhere, we will not get any preach about not doing the deeds. The path shown by religion is to do good deeds and do them by surrendering them in the divine feet of the Almighty GOD. The preaching of religion which we often miss - Boundation with GOD due to devotion, and then doing deeds for the GOD. After reaching such situation work done by us will never bind us. Here the bondage of the deeds is dropped and at the same time we are free from the cycle of rebirth.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. Doing good deeds and surrendering them in the divine feet of Almighty God will free us from the bondage of deeds and also free us from the cycle of birth and rebirths.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Here we get explanation of English word GOD. G = Generator (as LORD Brahma), O = Operator (as LORD Vishnu) and D = Destroyer (as LORD Rudra). Daily we read, speak and listen to the word GOD but if this explanation settles in our mind that the generator is GOD, the operator is GOD and the destroyer is GOD than we know our real status which is that we are nothing. Our capability is none. The ego of capability is the reason behind the downfall of creature. When we will determine in our heart that our capability is none then our ego can never grow. Such persons who will think so, will visions the power of GOD (not his power) at any height of his life.

The greatest devotee Sri Hanumanji presents this unique parable in Sunderkand of SriRamCharit Manas. While striding the sea, Sursa came before Sri Hanumanji and expanded her mouth to 16 yojan (unit of measurement) then Sri Hanumanji expanded His shape to 32 yojan. As Sursa expanded his mouth Hanumanji also doubled His size. When Sursa expanded her mouth upto 100 yojan, Hanumanji immediately tenured small shape and after entering Sursa’s mouth He came back. Saints have very beautifully interpreted that in the event of necessity Hanumanji expanded His size to double and finally by making himself small He preached to everyone that doubling or quadrupling the size was not His capability, it was the of capability of GOD. His capability was as small as His smallest size.

Person abiding so and doing so can attain the true height of life.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. GOD is the generator, operator and destroyer of everything. We must vision the power of GOD at all times in whatever we do.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - The interpretation of human bodied creatures with three main qualities is found here.

Those in which the Satgun (Good deeds) is the main quality, use the human body as a source of crossing worldly sea. Neither they waste their time in criticizing anyone nor in watching anyone’s fault. (Most humans have not fixed their goal of crossing the worldly sea in human life, therefore they are lying is useless activities like criticizing others, watching faults and are engaged in other worldly things). Satguni people spend their life in worshiping GOD and his forms because it is the only bridge for crossing the worldly sea. It is the only powerful source of disengaging from the cycle of rebirth and trap of 840 million species.

Whose main behavior is Rajogun (mediocre deeds) or Tamogun (evil deeds), worship GOD for wish of money, glory and children and engage their entire life in achieving them.

All three qualities are found in every creature. It is the need to enlighten ourself with Satgun because only it is capable of freeing us from worldly sea. For enlightening the Satgun we have to move towards GOD. As we go near to GOD, Satgun will increase. Similarly when we move towards money, glory and world our Rajogun and Tamogun will increase. Increased Rajogun and Tamogun will takes us towards money, glory and world.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. Satgun (Good deeds) in us bring us closer to Almighty GOD and therefore we must try to develop more Satgun in our lives.
