TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - This verse is available in both Srimad Bhagwatji and Srimad Geetaji and is GOD’s word and assurance of GOD.

Whenever there is a loss of faith in the world and sin increases then GOD take an incarnation and make this world sinless and reestablishes the faith. This assurance of GOD gives so much power to creatures else no option remains to control the loss of faith and increase in sins. If there is no assurance of GOD then this world will seem to be doomed in dark and all arrangements of the world will collapse.

It is only said because of the power of GOD’s assurance that faith can never be defeated because it is protected by GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. All arrangements of the world will collapse if there was no assurance of GOD to upheld it.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD removes the burden of the earth but He can do this work by sitting in His own dwelling and even by resolution only. There is no need for Him to take incarnation for this sake.

Saint say that GOD takes incarnation to grace His devotees. GOD has to come to let His devotees taste the juice of devotion. When GOD arrives then He performs various pastimes which increase the glory of GOD. One reason behind performing these pastimes is that by listening and singing to these pastimes sorrows, grieves and ignorance of creature are destroyed.

Therefore we should always sing and listen to the pastimes of GOD so that our human life can become successful.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Our sorrow, grief and ignorance are destroyed when we listen to the pastimes of GOD.

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

Singing the glory of GOD is the best means to make people pure. Scriptures say that the foremost means to purify a creature is the means of praising GOD. For the ears of Saints praise of GOD is equivalent to nectar. Saints consider the result of praising GOD even higher than drinking nectar. If once anyone will praise GOD by true devotion then all his longings of actions are unfounded.

Therefore saints always sing the serene glory of GOD by devotion and because of that they are successful in achieving GOD’s contiguity.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Singing the glory of GOD leads us to the contiguity of GOD.

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

GOD’s look is so divine and it is the height of beauty that for visualization of GOD all men and women drink the pleasantness of look of GOD continuously by making a bowl of their eyes. When GOD was there on earth while doing His pastime, at that time men and women drink the juice of His look and beauty. When GOD returned to His dwelling then even today also devotees are quenchless by visualizing pleasantness of look of GOD in their hearts. Devotees even do not like the falling of their eyelids as they disturbs in visualization of GOD and they pout by falling of eyelids.

It is not possible to describe the pleasantness of look of GOD. After visualizing of GOD’s look it seems like there is a flood of ecstasy.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. The beauty of GOD is remarkable and devotees visualize it with ecstasy.

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

King Parikshit wanted to listen to the ultimate pure character of GOD Shree Krishnaji in details. Great people sing the ultimate pure character of GOD by love but still, they remain quenchless. The character of GOD is the ultimate medicine for the destruction of worldly disease. GOD’s character provides ecstasy to saints and along with this it also provides pleasure to ears and heart of desirous people. One who do not love and avoid GOD’s character, he hurts himself.

So a creature must listen and sing the divine character of GOD daily in life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must listen and sing the divine character of Almighty GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - This is one of my favorite verse because it displays the gratitude of King Parikshit towards GOD.

King Parikshit says that in the war of Mahabharata there were many magnate fighters and Bhishma Pitamah in the favor of Kauravas and even the army of Kauravas was much bigger than that of Pandavas. But Pandavas took the shelter of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD Shree Krishnaji and crossed the ocean of that war spontaneously. How easily Pandavas crossed the ocean of war, for these the simile given by King Parikshit is unique. King Parikshit says that as we cross the small pit created by the legs of the calf of a cow spontaneously because it is very very small similarly Pandavas crossed the ocean of war spontaneously because of the grace of GOD.

We should also keep the feeling of gratitude towards GOD in our life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must always be grateful to GOD.

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

King Parikshit was listening to the narration of GOD with full immersion because he was aware that balance of his life was only seven days. Not only grain he had even abandoned water also. The sweet narration of GOD was providing him with so much juice that he had no worry of hungriness or thirstiness. He was so involved in listening to the pastime narration of GOD that he was even not aware of other subjects.

As deeply as we listen to the narration of GOD, we get the similar result. Only listening narration is one thing but listening to the narration with immersion is a different thing. If we want our salvation then we should listen to the narration of GOD with full immersion.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should listen to the narration of GOD with full immersion.

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

Questions asked for listening to the narration in respect of GOD purifies all three i.e, speaker, asker and listener. As the water of Bhagwati Mother Gangaji or feet nectar of GOD Shree Saligramji makes everyone pure similarly GOD’s narration purifies everyone. Therefore the curiosity to listen to the narration of GOD should always remain in our heart. In this era narration of GOD is the ultimate means to purify a creature.

So a creature must awaken the curiosity of listening to the narration of GOD in heart and should daily listen to the narration of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should make it a habit of listening to the narration of GOD daily in life as it purifies us.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD is adorable Deity of Deities also. Whenever Deities do suffer from any distress then they also take the shelter of GOD.

GOD fulfills all the wishes of His devotees. GOD destroys all afflictions of His devotees. There is no one else apart from GOD who can fulfill the wishes of a creature. There is no one else apart from GOD who can destroy all afflictions of a creature. Both these things are only possible because of GOD’s grace. A creature has some wishes and some afflictions in life and for both of these GOD’s grace is a must because GOD is the only owner of this universe.

So a creature must try to please GOD with devotion so that GOD’s grace can remain in his life continuously.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must make an effort to please GOD so that the grace of GOD remains in our life.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Kans killed six children of Bhagwati Mother Devki and in the seventh fetus GOD Shree Sheshji has to come. Then GOD called Yogmaya and instructed Her to establish this unborn in Bhagwati Mother Rohini’s fetus. Along with this GOD also told that I will take birth from Bhagwati Mother Devki and instructed Yogmaya to take birth from Bhagwati Mother Yashoda.

GOD pleasingly gave a boon to Yogmaya that She will be worshiped on this earth by various names and She will be able to give the boon to people as per their wishes. Those who will worship GODDESS, She will fulfill all their wishes. People on earth will worship GODDESS in various forms and several places of worship will be developed for GODDESS on the earth.

Because of this reason GODDESS is worshiped on this earth in several forms and Mother fulfills everyone’s wish by assuming them as children.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

GOD is present everywhere in all forms. GOD resides in every particle. There is no such place where GOD is not there. When devotee calls GOD, He does not have to come from anywhere because in one form He has situated Himself there itself.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD extricate the wicked people and provide them salvation. One reason behind this is that GOD do not have anything else other than salvation. Therefore He cannot give anything else other than salvation.

Another reason behind extrication of wicked people is because of fear or resistance they continuously think about GOD. While standing or sitting, eating or drinking, sleep or awakened and while walking, Kans continuously thought about GOD because he was afraid of GOD. Wherever his vision went because of fear he visualized only GOD. In this manner, this entire world appeared Godly to him.

Therefore at several places, we will get this description that GOD killed wicked and demons and their flame came out and subsided in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD and they achieved salvation.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Devotees of the GOD are true friends of this world. GOD’s devotees themselves cross this terrible and miserable surmountable worldly ocean by the grace of GOD. Along with this by rendering devotion they show the path of crossing the worldly ocean by taking the shelter of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD for the welfare of this world.

There is the great and special grace of GOD on the saintly persons. They are showered with so much grace of GOD that even we cannot imagine that. Because saints themselves achieve salvation and by rendering devotion they show the path of salvation to others, therefore, they become eligible for the special grace of GOD.

GOD will play in the water on the bank of Bhagwati Yamunaji (Holy River), therefore all rivers became pleased by this thought. The Fire was also pleased because it was aware that while performing pastime GOD will hold Fire twice in His Divine Mouth.

The Deity of Air was also pleased by thinking that when sweat will appear on the face of GOD, I will dry it up by blowing in soft perfumed pace.

But as Shri Vasudevji lifted GOD in his lap, guards of jail became unconscious and doors opened automatically. Iron chains and locks opened in such a manner that as on sunrise darkness disappears. With the remembrance of GOD, deed bondages of several life are destroyed, when He comes in lap, He destroys the bondages of all types. When Shri Vasudevji moved ahead by taking GOD then clouds started showering on them with thunder. At that time GOD Shri Sheshji stopped the water by His heads and started walking behind GOD. Though GOD Shri Sheshji was the bigger brother as Shree Balramji in incarnation but He considered serving GOD as His main religion as always. He thought that it is not right that GOD faces difficulty when He is there.

A creature also must make the service of GOD as the main objective of his life.

GOD lowered His Divine Lotus Feet and Bhagwati Yamunaji became calm right after the blissful touch of Divine Lotus Feet of GOD and She gave the way from Her center to Shri Vasudevji. In Shree Rama incarnation Shri Samudradev (Ocean) gave the way to GOD to go to Lanka similarly Bhagwati Yamunaji gave way in Shree Krishna incarnation to GOD to go to Gokul.
