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

GOD says that those who offer their deeds to GOD and whose times is spent in listening and discussing GOD’s pastimes such people leading a worldly life do not get trapped in the bondage of deeds.

All our deeds must be offered to GOD. This is the easiest way to escape from the bondage of deeds. Secondly, our routine should be such that our time is spent in listening to GOD’s narration and discussing about GOD. The saints do so. Leading a worldly life, whosoever is able to do so does not get trapped in the bondage of deeds. Therefore a creature must surrender his deeds to GOD and spend his time in GOD’s pastimes and discussion about GOD.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. Deeds surrendered to GOD does not trap us in the bondage of deeds.
  2. With devotion, we must listen to GOD's pastimes and make a habit to discuss about GOD.

GOD shows the way of salvation and is the provider of salvation. The last manhood of human life is assumed to be salvation. We achieve salvation only by GOD's grace.

The happiness of the GOD must be the goal of devotee’s life. Devotees don't have any other desire other than the happiness of GOD. GOD should be happy with us, this is the only wish of the devotees. GOD should be happy with us, this is the only boon which they ask from GOD. Nothing is left achievable in this world after the happiness of GOD. A true devotee continuously tries for the happiness of GOD in his entire lifetime. His only goal is the happiness of GOD and he puts his entire life at stake to achieve this goal.

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

Prachetas asked from GOD that until a creature is enticed by the illusion and do wander in this world as per his deeds, till then he should get discourse of GOD. Discourse of GOD by GOD's devotees frees us from all types of bondages.

For a single moment of discourse, heaven and salvation are nothing for the devotees, then human desires are countless in these regards. In the society of devotees there are fascinating narrations of GOD daily and only by listening to them our heart gets purified. To sing the glory of GOD again and again without any expectation is the only shelter of devotees.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

The creature should regularly praise the GOD as per his intelligence. GOD gets pleased by praise. In SriMad Bhagwatji, Shri RamCharitManas and in other Puranas (scriptures) we can read the praise of GOD sung by saints, deities and devotees. Whichever praise is dear to us, we should select it and regularly sing that praise in the morning and evening in front of GOD.

In this world only that mind is successful which is engaged in GOD. In this world only that voice is successful which sings the glory of GOD.

The resources by which we cannot achieve GOD, that practice has no benefit. The objective of all the resources is to achieve GOD. Practices are performed only to achieve GOD. Those resources by which we cannot achieve GOD are meaningless.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Saint of Deities Shri Naradji said the above words to Prachetas.

Once GOD is satiated the whole world is satiated. As by watering the root of the tree, its trunk, branch, sub branch, etc all are nutrified and as by taking food our all the senses are satiated similarly by worshipping GOD everyone is worshipped.

After satiating GOD by worship there is no need to satiate anyone else. So a creature should concentrate his mind on GOD and should satiate him by his service. There is no need to make efforts to satiate everyone again and again because satiation of GOD is satiation of this world.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. When we satisfy GOD we satisfy everyone.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Saint of Deities Shri Naradji said the above words to Prachetas.

Saint of Deities Shri Naradji has given three clues by which a creature can please GOD. When we assume the world as Godly and show mercy towards creatures, then it pleases GOD. When we assume satisfaction as wealth and are satisfied with whatever we get then it pleases GOD. When we free all our senses and make them calm from worldly desires then it pleases GOD.

So a creature should have mercy on creatures, should be satisfied with whatever he gets and retrench his senses from desires and engage them in GOD. To engage the senses in GOD and retrench it from desires is a form of devotion by which GOD is pleased very soon.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We should lead all our senses towards GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Saint of Deities Shri Naradji said the above words to Prachetas.

Saint of Deities Shri Naradji says that when a creature is free from all his desires then his heart gets purified. By such purified heart when he continuously cogitates GOD, due to which GOD is attracted towards him and GOD starts residing in his heart. By vindicating devotion GOD never leaves his heart again.

When GOD catches a creature by looking at his purified heart and devotion, then he never leaves him. Saint says that GOD knows only to catch, not to leave. So a creature should try to make his heart purified and awaken his devotion.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. With a purified heart devotion comes in our life, which in turn brings GOD in our life.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shree Brahmaji said the above words to Priyvrat.

Any body holder creature cannot avoid the legislation of GOD. GOD's legislation cannot be avoided by austerity, nor by education, nor by the power of meditation, nor by the power of the mind. GOD's legislation cannot be avoided by the power of wealth or religion. GOD's legislation cannot be avoided with the help of self or someone else.

This principle is rendered in Shri Ramcharitmanasji along with SriMad Bhagwatji. In Shri Ramcharitmanasji it is clearly written- It so happens, what GOD has planned. GOD's legislation is final and it is rectified only by the grace of GOD else it is not possible for anyone to overcome it.

Then he damned himself and said many bad words to himself. Then by GOD's grace his inner sense woke up again.

He distributed his kingdom into his sons, left his entire wealth and adopted reclusion and started following the way as guided by the saint of deities Shri Naradji by remembering the pastimes of GOD.
