TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - The King of Ushinar country was killed by the enemies in war. His queens sitting near his corpse were mourning. Shri Yamrajji saw this and came there in the guise of a child and gave the above preach to the queens.

GOD protects us in the womb and also protects us throughout the life. When a child is in the womb then GOD protects him. Just think that no one is having reach till womb other than GOD. Protection is another thing, even no one has a approach till there. GOD protected King Parikshit from Brahmastra (divine weapon) directly by entering the womb.

So we must have faith that the GOD who protected us in the womb will also protect us in our life after coming out of the womb.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. It is GOD who protects us in the womb and throughout our life.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Saint of Deities Shri Naradji said the above words to King Yudhishthir. The above words are said in the context of great devotee Shri Prahladji.

Saint of Deities Shri Naradji says that there is no need to listen or tell anything about the qualities of Shri Prahladji for describing his glory. The glory of Shri Prahladji can be told and explained only by one quality i,e, he was a great devotee of GOD. He was having a natural and inbred love towards the divine lotus feet of GOD. For expressing the glory of Shri Prahladji only this much thing is enough.

To undertake devotion of GOD is the best and highest quality of all human qualities, this fact is rendered here.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great Devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words to his teachers Shand and Amark.

Shri Pahladji says that as iron is automatically attracted towards the magnet similarly because of GOD's will his mind is detached from the world and is attracted towards GOD. These are the symptoms of a true devotee that their mind never gets engaged in the world because GOD is the center of attraction for them. Devotee engages his mind in GOD by diverting it from the world. This is the criterion of a devotee that where his mind is engaged, if it is engaged in GOD then only we should assume that his devotion is proved.

So a creature should concentrate his mind on GOD by diverting it from the world.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should divert our mind from the world and concentrate it on GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words to his father Hiranyakashyapu when he was asked what his teachers have taught him.

Shri Prahladji gave the representation of Navadha Devotion (Nine types of devotion). There is so much glory of Navadha Devotion that in every main scriptures you can find the rendering of Navadha Devotion. Saints says that from Navadha Devotion if even one type of devotion is proven then the creature gets salvation. GOD Shree Ramji said the same thing to Bhagawati Shabari that among the nine types of Navadha Devotion those who perform even one type of devotion they are dear to GOD.

Shri Prahladji says here that if someone performs Navadha Devotion with full dedication towards GOD then he assumes that it is the best means to seek GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. If anyone undertakes devotion, he becomes dear to GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words to his classmates in gurukul (ancient hostel type school).

Shri Prahladji says that human life is very rare in this world. But after getting the human life if anyone undertakes devotion then it is possible to achieve GOD. But no one knows when our human life may come to an end, so intelligent creatures never leave devotion for young age or old age but they start devotion from childhood to achieve GOD.

This is a very true thing that we leave devotion for older age. In old age, our body and memory do not cooperate with us and we are unable to undertake devotion. So we should undertake the path of GOD's devotion right from the childhood age then only our human life will be successful.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must not leave devotion for older age but devotion must be practiced since childhood.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words to his classmates in gurukul (ancient hostel type school).

Human life is very rare. After wandering in countless species, GOD mercifully gives us human life. After getting this human life taking the shelter of Divine lotus feet of GOD is the only success of human life. Here "only" word has special significance. Shri Prahladji says that the only success of human life is to take the shelter of Divine lotus feet of GOD. We assume the success of our human life in earning our prestige, money, business, beauty but in the true sense, the success of human life is in the shelter of Divine lotus feet of GOD.

So a creature should undertake devotion and take the shelter of GOD and make his human life successful.

Shri Prahladji says that the person who is engaged in his own family and waste his precious life in their upbringing, he destroys the real objective of his human life. The real objective of human life is to achieve GOD. We have got this human life for the union of "individual soul" with "Universal Soul". After taking birth as a human being we get trapped in wasteful worldliness and thereby miss our objective of human life.

So a creature should be alert and aware of his objective of human life so that he can make his life successful be undertaking devotion of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should identify the real objective of human life which is to achieve GOD through devotion.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words to his classmates in gurukul (ancient hostel type school).

GOD is the repository of all beauties, sweetness and grandeur. GOD is the only pleasure form which can be experienced. Illusion has hidden His grandeur. As the illusion is renounced we can visualize GOD and His grandeur. Illusion's work is to keep us away from GOD therefore until the illusion is renounced, we cannot experience the pleasure form of GOD.

So a creature should undertake the devotion of GOD so that he can be free from illusion and can experience the pleasure form of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Devotion frees us from illusion and enables us to experience GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words to his classmates in gurukul (ancient hostel type school).

Shri Prahladji says that when GOD is pleased there is no such thing which is unachievable. When GOD is pleased our desire is fulfilled before the desire. Before we desire for anything that thing automatically becomes available to us. Another thing Shri Prahladji says that after intake of the nectar of Divine lotus feet of GOD and after chanting the name and qualities of GOD there is no necessity for salvation. The result of these means is even bigger than salvation.

So a creature should please GOD by devotion so that he can achieve ecstasy.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words to his classmates in gurukul (ancient hostel type school).

Shri Prahladji says that in scriptures religion, wealth and desires are described. In scriptures, self knowledge, rituals, logic, penalty policy and various sources of livelihood are described. But if all these things are helpful in surrendering ourself to GOD then only they are true and meaningful else all of them are meaningless. We should accept this as a principle that if any manhood does not take us to GOD then it is meaningless.

So a creature should only hold that means which let him reach before GOD. Only devotion is that means which helps us to surrender ourself before GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. If any manhood does not take us towards GOD then it is meaningless.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Those who undertake devotion after winning over desire, anger, greed, attachment, pride and envy they achieve an exclusive love in divine lotus feet of GOD in return of devotion.

There are six enemies who create an obstacle in union with GOD. These six enemies are desire, anger, greed, attachment, pride and envy. Before winning them union with GOD is not possible. The best way to win them is by devotion. As the devotion towards GOD will increase inside us, the power of these enemies will automatically decrease.

So a creature should undertake devotion of GOD so that exclusive love in divine lotus feet of GOD can arise inside him.

Shri Prahladji says that there is no special hard work involved in undertaking devotion of GOD who is residing in our heart. It is very simple to undertake devotion of GOD. GOD is a loving friend for every creature and is also our soul. It is so foolish to run behind enjoyment materials like wealth, women, son, palace, earth, treasury, honor and other things leaving GOD. All these things are evanescent, and are destroyable so they cannot give pleasure to the human being. True pleasure is only in the devotion of GOD.

So a creature should distract his mind from all enjoyment materials and concentrate it on GOD then only he will be blessed.
