TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD performs several tasks of devotees and even provide them with salvation, but He doesn't provide devotion with ease. Devotion is even greater than salvation, this fact is rendered here.

By providing salvation a creature is also free and even GOD is also free from the creature. But by providing devotion, GOD comes into the bondage of a devotee. Therefore devotion is extremely rare and only rare people get it.

So a creature should always try to achieve the devotion of GOD and should proceed in that direction because the place of devotion is the highest.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. Devotion is higher than salvation and therefore we must try to practice devotion in life.

His love towards GOD increased very fast and finally his heart became calm. Because of GOD's love his body was excited by ecstasy. His eyes were filled with tears of love for GOD. He engaged his mind on the divine lotus feet of GOD and engaged himself in devotion. He was so overwhelmed that he even did not remember about worldly prayer.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Bharatji who left his kingdom and his sons for GOD's devotion, after coming in forest his heart got stuck in a baby deer. He got so much trapped in the pampering of baby deer that he even forgot GOD. Even in his last time his heart was engaged in that deer.

After his death he got the body of a deer, but because of his past devotion, his past life's memory was not lost. He regretted that why he degenerated from the GOD's way. He patiently excluded the attachment of this world and made his life successful by engaging his each moment of life in worshipping of GOD by listening, thinking and chanting the qualities of GOD. But because of ignorance, he missed his aim due to a baby deer.

In the society of great people always there is a talk about the qualities of GOD, because of which their mind never goes towards worldly desires. A principle is rendered here that if you want to keep your mind away from worldly desires then you have to engage it into listening, thinking and chanting the narration of GOD.

When you daily listen to the narration of GOD, it purifies our intellect and diverts it towards GOD. So we should make it a rule in our life that we will daily listen to the pastimes of GOD in the form of narration so that our mind will be engaged in GOD and will not indulge in worldly desires.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. Our mind should not be engaged in worldly desires, instead it should focus on GOD.

One should cut the bondage of fascination by using the sword of knowledge received from the discourse of recluse great people. After it by singing and listening to the pastimes of GOD, they will continuously remember GOD. Because of this they will easily cross the worldly ocean and reach GOD.

Whose mind is engaged in GOD's service, in their vision even salvation becomes extremely ill relevant . GOD's devotion is at the highest pinnacle and in comparison to it salvation is extremely secondary. Those who undertake devotion of GOD never desires salvation. Salvation is always available for them without any demand. Those who undertake devotion automatically becomes eligible for salvation. They don't need to make any efforts for salvation.

But a devotee assumes salvation as insignificant and denies taking it. Those who perform devotion of GOD they get so much ecstasy in the devotion of GOD that even salvation fades away in comparison to it.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. Devotion is the pinnacle whereas salvation is extremely secondary to it.

When at King Bali's place GOD lifted his divine lotus feet to take three feet land, it reached till Brahmalok (Place where GOD Brahmaji resides).

Pure water of Mother Shree Ganga which is equivalent to nectar, on touching it destroys all the sins of this world. But it is possible only when we have complete loyalty, faith and devotion in Mother Shree Ganga. The water of Mother Shree Ganga always remains pure. Even science is not able to understand this fact that how a water is so pure even after several years. It is a clear small miracle of Mother Shree Ganga which can even be seen today also.

Indian scriptures have considered Shri SuryaNarayanji (Sun) as a conscious form of GOD. In SriMad Bhagwat Geetaji GOD has described Shri SuryaNarayanji as His power. Shri SuryaNarayanji is the soul of all realms. We cannot imagine life without the heat and light of GOD Shri Surya.

There is legislation of prayer and worship of Shri SuryaNarayanji. Whenever GOD has taken incarnation in human form He woke up daily in the early morning and prayed and worshipped Shri SuryaNarayanji. Shri SuryaNarayanji is also the first spiritual master. So we should consider Shri SuryaNarayanji as a conscious form of GOD and should daily wake up in the early morning and worship him and should provide arghya (a process in which we take water in our hands and offer with respect to GOD Sun) to Him.
