TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Sanatkumarji said the above words to King Prathu.

In this verse the importance of surrender to GOD is elaborated. There are several means to cross this worldly ocean, but they all are difficult and therefore it is not possible to cross this worldly ocean through them. It is because GOD is not there in the root of those means and so they are not sheltered by GOD.

But those who cross this worldly ocean by holding the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD, they easily cross it. So to cross this worldly ocean, we should only accept the shelter of GOD. As we take the shelter of GOD, GOD himself takes the responsibility of taking us to the other side of this worldly ocean.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

After achieving the human life we should not indulged only in worldly pursuits because this worldly pursuit will lead us towards our downfall and becomes a barrier in fulfilling the aim of our human life.
