Saints only seek the company of GOD. They only want to achieve GOD and work only to achieve Him.

Those devotees who undertake devotion of GOD without any expectation and demand only GOD from GOD, GOD accepts his bonding. So a creature should undertake the devotion without any expectation which is the supreme pinnacle of devotion.

Those who take the shelter of GOD their welfare is inevitable. It is an eternal principle that those who take the shelter of GOD their welfare is certain.

No one can beat the person who is in the shelter of GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Vritrasur said the above words to the King of Deities Shri Indra.

When the war between Deities and demons was about to happen, GOD blessed Deities and suggested them to fight with a weapon created from the bones of Saint Dadhichi. Vritrasur was aware of this fact, so he said to King of deities Shri Indra that in whosoever favor GOD Shree Hari will stand victory, wealth and all virtues will reside in his favor. It is an eternal principle and even war of Mahabharata is a live example of this. GOD was in favor of Pandavas and in opposition there were many powerful fighters and a bigger army then Pandavas but Pandavas got the victory.

In whosoever favor GOD is the victory, wealth and all virtues automatically appear on that side.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. In whosoever favor there is GOD, victory, wealth and virtues lie in his favor.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Vritrasur prayed above while visualizing GOD in the battlefield.

Our mind should continuously remember the blissful qualities of GOD. This is a very higher stage of mind that instead of engaging into worldly matters, it remembers GOD’s virtues. Our voice should sing the praise of GOD’s virtues. Only that voice is blessed which sings the praise of GOD’s virtues. Our body should be engaged in the service of GOD. The body which is engaged in GOD's service is blessed.

So a creature should engage his mind in remembering GOD's qualities, sing the glory of GOD from his voice and serve GOD from his body.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We should remember and sing the glory of Almighty GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Vritrasur prayed above while visualizing GOD in the battlefield.

Though Vritrasur is a demon still the way he prays to GOD is very touching. Vritrasur says that apart from GOD, he does not want the rule of heaven or Bramhalok (Dwelling of GOD Shri Brahmaji). He does want the empire of entire earth or monopoly kingdom of underworld other than GOD. Other than GOD, he does not want any of the attainment from various attainments that can be achieved from yog. Even he doesn’t want salvation other than GOD. He wants only and only GOD. This feeling is very rare in the life of a devotee but only this is the symbol of true devotion.

So a creature should undertake devotion without any expectation and should not desire or ask anything from GOD other than GOD.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. A true devotee seeks only GOD from GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Vritrasur prayed above while visualizing GOD in the battlefield.

Vritrasur says that as the featherless child of bird who don't know how to fly await for their mother very impatiently in their nest, similarly I am also waiting impatiently for GOD. Vritrasur gives second example that as hungry calves are eager to drink the milk of their mother similarly Vritrasur is also eager for GOD. Vritrasur gives the third example that as a isolated wife awaits to meet a migrant husband similarly Vritrasur is also awaiting to meet GOD.

To achieve the proximity of GOD there should be such yearning inside us then only it is possible to meet GOD in life.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We should have a yearn to seek GOD in our life.

Vritrasur says that he should get his next birth amidst GOD lovers and only he should have the friendship with GOD lovers. Vritrasur says that he don't want any relation of any type with those people who are engaged in body, wife and son because of subjugation of illusion. It is an eternal principle that whosoever’s company we do keep we also become like them. So we should keep precaution that we should only keep the company of those people who are in the contiguity of GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shri Shukdevji said the above words to King Parikshit.

By remembering and praying to GOD in the battlefield Vritrasur wanted to leave his body because as per his opinion it was best to achieve GOD after death. Instead of achieving the kingdom of heaven after defeating King of Deities Shri Indra, he was more interested in achieving GOD after death.

Vritrasur showed an immense desire to achieve GOD abandoning the splendor of heaven. A creature should also try to achieve GOD by sacrificing worldly desires and splendors then only his birth will be successful.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We should sacrifice worldly pleasures and desires and instead seek GOD.

GOD controls everyone. Like a puppet is in the control of its controller similarly every creature is in the control of GOD. The controller controls the puppet and makes it dance in the way he wants. Similarly, as GOD wants, this world reacts in the same way.

All the creatures of this world are in the control of GOD. GOD's dominance is universal. Every creature of this world has to accept the authority of GOD. No one is free in this world. Everyone is dependent on GOD.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - King of Deities Shri Indra said the above words to King of Demons Vritrasur in the battlefield.

Vritrasur's feeling towards GOD was extraordinary. He had uniquely devoted himself to GOD. Because of his devotion towards GOD he had crossed the illusion of GOD so he was truly a great man. Vritrasur had loving devotion in the divine lotus feet of GOD, the owner of supreme welfare. So he had no interest in worldly pleasures. Like a person travelling in the ocean of nectar has no concern with water filled in a dig similarly Vritrasur who was engaged in devotion has no concern with worldly pleasures.

A creature should also detach from worldly pleasure and move on the path of devotion then only his welfare will be certain.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We should undertake the path of devotion and detach from worldly pleasures.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - King Parikshit asked the above question to GOD Shri Shukdevji.

Persons who are seeking salvation in this world are rare. Among thousands of people who seek salvation, there is only a rare one who gets salvation or accomplishment. But among those million who get salvation or accomplishment, it is very difficult to find a peaceful minded great man who is only devoted to GOD.

It is very difficult to find a true devotee. The place of devotion is very high in comparison to salvation and accomplishment. GOD easily gives salvation and accomplishment but it is very difficult to achieve devotion. So a creature should proceed on the path of devotion and make his birth successful.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. To make our human life successful we must progress on the path of devotion.

The reason of all grief, attachment, fear and sorrow is our mind. So a creature should engage his mind and intellect in GOD then only prevention from grief, attachment, fear and sorrow is possible.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION

Those who chant GOD selflessly, GOD gives Himself to them mercifully. GOD is under influence of His devotee and those who are selfless devotees, He even gives Himself to them. So saints and scriptures had said that don't ask anything from GOD, seek GOD from GOD.

GOD accepts the bonding of a true and selfless devotee and gets tied in his bonding. So a creature should devote himself selflessly to GOD so that due to grace, GOD accepts his loving bonding.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. GOD gives Himself to His selfless devotees so we must seek GOD from GOD.

The mere sight of GOD emaciates all the sins of a creature. Even by listening to the name of GOD, we become free from the bondage of this world. There is so much power in visualizing GOD, chanting and listening to GOD's name that it emaciates our sins and gives us salvation from this worldly ocean.

Therefore the saints had sung so much glory of visualizing GOD, chanting and listening to GOD's name. So a creature should daily visualize the idol of GOD, chant the auspicious name of GOD and listen to the chanting of GOD's name.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We must visualize GOD, chant and listen to the chanting of GOD’s auspicious name.

GOD is the soul of the entire world. Therefore whatever the creatures of this world do, GOD is aware of everything. GOD resides inside everyone in the visionary form of soul. Whatever a creature thinks or does, GOD is aware of that thing. Whatever we do or think GOD knows everything. We can't hide anything from GOD. Therefore scriptures have said that GOD is omniscient.

So a creature should think good and perform good deeds because GOD is witnessing everyone.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD said the above words to King Chitraketu after his prayer.

The individual soul is the part of GOD. But a creature forgets the form of GOD and assumes that he is different from GOD. Then only he gets engaged in worldly things and he receives births after births and deaths after deaths.

We should never forget that we are the part of GOD. A part in never different from a whole. When we see ourself connected with GOD then we become free from this worldly ocean. But when we assume ourself different from GOD then we get engaged in worldly things and are trapped in the cycle of birth and death. So a creature should connect himself with GOD then only his salvation is possible.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We should be able to connect ourself with Almighty GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD said the above words to King Chitraketu after his prayer.

In the human species, GOD has given intelligence and knowledge to humans. Those who are unable to know their self image of GOD even after getting human birth, they can never get peace in any species. We have got human birth for the union of "Individual soul" with "Universal soul". Those who do not try in this direction even after getting the human life, they have to wander in various species and even there they do not get peace.

So a creature should try to identify GOD after taking birth as human and should try to achieve GOD by devotion.

GIST FOR ALL REILIGION
  1. We must try to identify and achieve GOD after taking birth as a human.

Selfless devotion is at the highest place because as a result of this GOD donates Himself to devotees. GOD comes under the bonding of devotee and accepts his bonding. So a creature should undertake the selfless devotion of GOD and do not seek worldly pleasures from GOD.
