TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words in praise of GOD.

Shri Prahladji says that though he is downright inept and unworthy but he is describing the glory of GOD as per his intellect. Because the effect of singing the glory of GOD is such that it immediately purifies the creature singing the glory. Therefore saints and sages have always sung the glory of GOD. By singing the glory of GOD devotees has purified themselves. Even scriptures and Vedas have sung the glory of GOD.

So a creature must listen to the singing of GOD's glory and if possible then he should also try to sing the glory of GOD as per his intellect.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words in praise of GOD.

Shri Prahladji describes here the condition of a creature in this world. Our mind is sunk in sinful desires. Because of desires and concerns, we remain undeterred. Tongue pulls us toward the delicious juices. Lust pulls us towards the beautiful lady. Skin pulls us towards delicate touch. Stomach pulls us towards food. Ears pull us towards melodious music. Nose pulls us towards fragrance. Eyes pull us towards beauty. Sense organs pull us towards desires. Our condition becomes like a man whose various wives drag him towards their bedroom.

The only way to escape from all these is to engage all our senses and desires with GOD, like engaging tongue in accepting the offerings of GOD, engaging ears in listening to the narration of GOD, engaging eyes in visualization of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must engage all our senses to visualize and experience GOD.

Shri Prahlad says that it is very difficult to cross over the brats of this world across this worldly ocean because they are disinclined from GOD and are trapped in sensual desires. For achieving the false pleasure of illusion they carry the weight of the entire world on their head. But Shri Prahladji says that he is not at all in fear of crossing this worldly ocean as his mind is engrossed in GOD. He sings the glory of GOD which the supreme nectar disdaining the nectar of heaven.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

Shri Prahlad says that air, fire, earth, sky, water, soul, senses, mind, spirit and in the entire world with attributes or without attributes whatever is there it is only GOD. Other than GOD there is nothing in this world. Saints have assumed this entire world as Godly and have visualized GOD in every particle. Shri Prahladji himself visualized GOD in a lifeless pole and to keep the words of His devotee GOD took the incarnation as Shree Narsinghji and appeared from the lifeless pole. Whatever we represent from our mind and voice everything is GOD.

Therefore we must know the art to visualize GOD everywhere and this is only possible after perfecting devotion.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. True devotee visualizes GOD in every particle of the world.

Fifthly, to think about the Divine lotus feet of GOD. Sixthly, to listen to the pastimes and narration of GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shree Narsinghji said the above words after being pleased by the divine praise of Shri Prahladji.

GOD is the fulfiller of all desires of a creature. Other than GOD no one can fulfill our desires. This world is only a medium, actually, all our desires are only fulfilled by GOD. Therefore those lucky saints who have the desire for their welfare, they try by their full power to please GOD. A devotee keeps his life on the stake to please GOD. The purpose of human life is to please GOD by devotion.

So a creature must try to please GOD by undertaking the various means of devotion in his lifetime so that his human life can become successful.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Prahladji was an exclusive devotee lover of GOD. Therefore the boons which induced even big people were offered to Shri Prahladji but he was not induced by them and he did not show any interest in those boons.

Though Shri Prahladji was a child but because of his firm devotion, he thought that demanding a boon is an obstacle in GOD's love and devotion. A true devotee never wants anything from GOD, he only wants GOD from GOD. Boons and accomplishment lead us away from the GOD.

Even if a devotee demands a boon then also he only demands that his devotion should continuously increase. The only desire of a devotee is that his love in Divine lotus feet of GOD should continuously increase.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Great Devotee Shri Prahladji said the above words to GOD.

Demanding anything from GOD is an obstruction in the loving devotion of GOD. Therefore a true devotee never demands anything from GOD. GOD takes an exam by motivating the devotee to ask for a boon but a selfless devotee like Shri Prahladji demands nothing. Shri Prahladji says that the servant who wants to fulfill his desire by asking something from GOD is not a servant but only a trader doing a transaction. A devotee never redeems devotion by asking something from GOD. A true devotee only does selfless devotion. The place of selfless devotion is the highest. When we expect something then the effect of devotion reduces a lot.

So a creature must undertake selfless devotion of GOD and never desire anything from GOD in lieu of devotion.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must not seek anything from GOD in lieu of devotion.

When GOD asked Shri Prahladji to demand a boon then Shri Prahladji did not demand anything selflessly. Shri Prahladji says that even if GOD still wants to give him boon then he want that the seed of desire never germinate in his heart. When our desires and longing are destroyed and we become selfless forever then this is the biggest achievement for a devotee. While walking on the path of devotion we should always pray that we become selfless.

A creature should always undertake selfless devotion and should continuously pray to GOD that the seeds of desire never germinate in his heart.

When Shri Prahlad become desireless and did not demand anything from GOD then GOD made Shri Prahladji the overlord of demons and for His own delight and by His own will. Here devotee does not want to take anything but GOD is giving the kingdom to His devotee by His own wish and for His own delight. In Shri RamcharitManas ji also GOD Shree Ramji gave the kingdom of Lanka to Vibhishanji by His own wish and for His own delight, though Vibhishanji has not expressed any interest in it.

GOD has described in this verse that while ruling the kingdom and living between luxuries how can we be unaffected by it.

Shri Prahladji politely prayed to GOD that his father Hiranyakashyapu hatred GOD then also his father should be acquitted and he may become pure. Then GOD said that the family in which a devotee like Shri Prahladji takes birth, twenty-one generations of that family becomes pure and gets salvation.

Because of devotion, a devotee has so much capability that he can extricate his entire family with himself. Saints describe these words of GOD and say that the family in which a true devotee takes birth, its previous twenty-one generations and next twenty-one generations automatically achieves salvation. Therefore we must motivate our children that they should become a devotee of GOD by undertaking devotion so that salvation of their family becomes possible.

GOD says that as per the order of Vedas we should rule piously. We should engage our heart in GOD and should take the shelter of GOD and should rule by treating it as a service of GOD. In Shri RamcharitManas ji also Shri Bharatlalji kept the Shree Footwears of GOD on the throne and ruled the kingdom by becoming His servant.

We should also engage our mind in GOD while performing worldly deeds and should take the shelter of GOD and do our work as service of GOD.

The Pandavas were able to tide over a lot of adversity due to the grace and help of GOD. The Pandavas who were deprived of everything by the Kauravas were able to rule to entire world due to their service of the Divine lotus feet of GOD and they performed many Rajsuya Yajna. How the grace of GOD works in life can be seen from the life of Pandavas. The Pandavas lost everything but did not lose GOD and therefore they got back everything.

We must also under no circumstances lose GOD. If GOD will be with us then we would be able to tide over all adversities.
