TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shree Brahmaji said the above words in praise of GOD.

GOD Shree Brahmaji says that Shri Nandji and the residents of Braj are actually very blessed as they have created a relationship of a relative with GOD. That creature who establishes a relationship with GOD is blessed. But creature forgets GOD and establishes a relationship with the world and gets sorrow at last. A creature has an eternal relationship with GOD, therefore, he is only blessed when he identifies this eternal relationship with GOD and gets attached to Him in any form. Whatever relationship we establish with GOD, GOD accepts it and adores it.

Therefore a creature must establish a relationship with GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must be able to establish a relation with GOD in any form.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shree Brahmaji said the above words in praise of GOD.

Attaching all our senses to GOD is true devotion. Residents of Braj drink the nectar of joy of GOD from all their senses which are even sweeter than nectar. Residents of Braj have attached all their senses with GOD. GOD Shree Brahmaji praises the fortune of all the residents of Braj only because of this reason that they have attached all their senses with GOD. True ecstasy of life lies only in this fact that we should attach all our senses with GOD. The ecstasy which is in this cannot be found elsewhere.

So a creature must try to attach all his senses with GOD by undertaking devotion in life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must attach all our senses with GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shree Brahmaji said the above words in praise of GOD.

GOD Shree Brahmaji wants to take birth in Braj in any species. Because after taking birth there He may get some feet dust of any of the GOD’s loving devotee. GOD Shree Brahmaji says that getting the feet dust of any loving devotee of GOD is equivalent to getting the Feet dust of Divine Lotus Feet of GOD as the sole owner of a loving devotee is only and only GOD. Therefore there is no difference between them and GOD. By this statement devotion and glory of the devotee is rendered. How best the place of a devotee in this world is, we can clearly see here.

Therefore a creature must make his life successful by taking the mainstay of devotion in life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shree Brahmaji said the above words in praise of GOD.

Residents of Braj dedicated their house, wealth, relatives, body, son, life, mind and everything in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. They dedicated themselves completely to GOD. For this service, GOD also dedicated Himself to residents of Braj. There is nothing else which is bigger than GOD and GOD dedicated Himself but still, GOD was not able to repay. The capability of loving devotion is so big that even after dedicating Himself GOD does not consider that He had repaid everything.

Nothing is dear to GOD in comparison to loving devotion and for this sake GOD offers Himself.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. The loving devotion of a devotee is most dear to GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD Shree Brahmaji said the above words in praise of GOD.

Attachment and malice are only attached to a creature until he becomes of GOD. As soon as he becomes of GOD this flaw is automatically removed. Home and relatives can bind us only until we become of GOD. As we become of GOD reclusiveness comes in our mind and worldly bondages are unable to bind us. Endearment can lock us only until we become of GOD. As we become of GOD our endearment bondage is demolished.

So a creature should become of GOD by undertaking devotion so that worldly disorders cannot affect him.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should undertake devotion of GOD so that worldly bondages are unable to bind us.

GOD is fully devoid of worldly hassles. Qualities and defects of this world can never affect GOD. Then too GOD takes incarnation on this earth to give pleasure to His sheltered devotees. During His incarnation, He expands His pastime so that it can bless devotees by listening, narrating and thinking about the pastime. The only purpose of GOD’s pastime is to provide pleasure and salvation to His devotees. GOD’s pastime provides endless pleasure to His devotees.

So a creature must listen and think about the pastime of GOD so that he can achieve ecstasy and salvation.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD’s pastime provides ecstasy and salvation to His devotees.

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

Those who have taken the shelter of the Divine Lotus Feet of saintly fame GOD, for them crossing this worldly ocean becomes so much accessible like it is very easy to cross a pit made by the feet of a calf. When a calf walks, the pit made because of his walking is very small and we cross it very easily without any effort. Similarly, the creature who takes the shelter of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD, cross this worldly ocean without any efforts. That creature achieves the ultimate bliss. For him, this world, which a home of sorrow and is full of troubles becomes a provider of pleasure.

So a creature must take the shelter of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD in life.

Gops and Gopis used to chant the pastime of GOD in Braj. Herdsman children walked behind GOD by remembering GOD’s pastimes and by praising Him. The best means of our purification in this world is listening, thinking and chanting the pastime narration of GOD. Saints and devotees daily listen to the pastime narration of GOD, daily think about the pastime narration of GOD and daily chant the pastime narration of GOD. Listening, thinking and chanting the pastime narration of GOD not only makes us pure but also provides us divine ecstasy.

So a creature must listen, think and chant the pastime narration of GOD in life.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - When GOD returned back in evening after serving the cows then He used to play the flute while coming. After listening to the sound of flute many Gopis used to come out of their houses to see GOD. Their eyes were yearning for visualizing GOD from a long time.

Gopis use to visualize GOD by their eyes and calm their separation of the entire day. They visualized the delightful tableau of GOD. On the head of GOD a beautiful crown of peacock feather was there, in hairs beautiful flowers were embedded. GOD's eyes and smile was very sweet and delightful. Gopis use to visualize GOD many times to ensure the success of their eyes.

A creature should also visualize the idol of GOD to make his eyes successful and should try to gain the eligibility of visualizing GOD’s tableau in his heart.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should be able to visualize GOD in our heart.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Once GOD went to the bank of Mother Yamuna (Holy river of India) with herdsman children. In Yamunaji a snake named Kaliya lived and because of him, the water was toxic. The cows and herdsman children drank the toxic water because of thirst. After drinking the toxic water, cows and herdsman children became breathless.

They considered GOD as their owner and everything and had the strongest faith in GOD. In distress, they only had faith in GOD. After watching them in such breathless condition GOD saw them by His nectar spreading sight and they became alive.

When we consider GOD as our everything and have the deepest faith in GOD then He protects us from every trouble. GOD holds the full responsibility of the creatures living in His shelter.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must have the deepest faith in Almighty GOD.

When GOD jumped in Shri Yamunaji to clean it from the toxic of Kaliya viper then Kaliya contemptuously came in front of GOD. He gripped GOD in his bondage and GOD got bound doing pastime. As the herdsman children saw this, they fainted because of grief and fear. Herdsman children have dedicated their everything to GOD therefore after watching the agony of GOD they fainted.

A devotee loves GOD so much that he cannot bear the agony of GOD even in imagination.

When Kaliya viper gripped GOD in his bondage and GOD got bound doing pastime then bad omens started in Braj. When Shri Nandji, Gops and Gopis saw these bad omens and came to know that GOD is not there and had gone to serve cows then they all were disconcerted by fear. They were eager because of the fear, grief and sorrow that any ominous incident may not happen with GOD. As soon as such things came in their mind they became very destitute and with the longing to see their beloved GOD safe they left their homes and set out to find the LORD.

Residents of Braj greatly loved GOD and always wished for His auspiciousness.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Snake wives said the above words to GOD.

GOD saw that residents of Braj reached the bank of Shri Yamunaji while searching Him and when they saw GOD gripped in the bonding of Kaliya they fainted because of love. Then GOD inflated His body and because of that Kaliya’s body began to break. GOD came out of the bonding and started dancing on the head of Kaliya. There were one hundred and one heads of Kaliya and whichever head he did not bow, GOD thumped him with His Divine Lotus Feet. By the thumping of GOD’s Divine Lotus Feet, Kaliya’s life power was exhausted and his every body part got crushed by suffering. Then the snake wives brought their children in front and greeted GOD and came in His shelter for their husband’s protection. They said to GOD that GOD punishes sinners for the atonement of their sins and for their ultimate welfare. After getting punishment from GOD, all the sins of sinners are destroyed.

In the process of GOD’s punishment ultimate welfare and ultimate benefit of creature is hidden.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Snake wives said the above words to GOD.

When GOD blessed Kaliya and thumped his one hundred and one heads one by one then after watching this, wives of Kaliya praised the fortune of their husband. They said that it is the result of any religious practice of Kaliya that he got an opportunity to achieve the touch of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. Dust of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD is so rare that devotees deny the kingdom of heaven, imperial of earth, the kingdom of the abyss, the post of GOD Shree Brahmaji, attainments and even salvation in lieu of it. Dust of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD is so rare therefore achieving the continuous touch of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD on his head was so big fortune of Kaliya.

The glory of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD is boundless therefore devotees engage their mind in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD by devotion.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Devotees engage their mind in the Divine Lotus feet of GOD by undertaking devotion of GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Snake wives said the above words in praise of GOD.

Snake wives say that GOD is the owner and foregoes the sins of their people. They said that our husband Kaliya is loggerhead and was unable to identify GOD, therefore, is eligible for mercy. Snake wives said that Kaliya is going to die anytime because of the thumping from GOD and we will become orphan. Therefore provide us mercy and do not give the sentence of death to our husband. They said to GOD that we all are your slaves and hence please order us what we can do to serve you. The key is that whosoever serves GOD and follow the orders of GOD by faith, GOD relieves him from all kind of fears.

Therefore a creature should serve GOD by rapt so that fear can leave their life for forever.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - How big is the importance of Feet Signs of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD, we can see here.

The narration is like that Shri Garudji is the conveyance of GOD Shree Vishnuji. Shri Garudji’s food was the snake. Therefore on Ramnak island snakes have made such rule that on every new moon snake families will turn by turn offer one snake to Shri Garudji. Kaliya snake was full of ego because of his powers and he refused to offer snake. Then Shri Garudji attacked him in very high speed and hurt Kaliya by poking him. Then because of fear of Shri Garudji, Kaliya ran away and hid himself in Shri Yamunaji. Now GOD had mercy on him and the Feet Signs of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD were engraved on his head therefore now for Shri Garudji also Kaliya became respectable.

Because of being eligible for the mercy of GOD he also became eligible for mercy from Shri Garudji.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

When GOD graced Kaliya and make him fearless by forgiving him then he worshipped GOD. After it by much love and pleasure he revolved around GOD to greet Him, worshipped Him, and after taking permission he left Shri Yamunaji and went away. When GOD came out of Shri Yamunaji then all the residents of Braj who had fainted, they stood up as if life has been circulated in their senses. Heart of all the Gops and Gopis filled with pleasure. They hugged GOD by deep love. Mother Yashoda’s eyes were showering tears of joy again and again. All were happy assuming that everyone’s wish was fulfilled. Even mountains, trees, cows, bulls, and calves were beaming.

The thing which is worth learning from this parable is that how much great love a creature should have for GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Residents of Braj said the above words to GOD.

When GOD came back after releasing Shri Yamunaji from Kaliya then it was almost evening, therefore, the tired residents of Braj did not return to Braj and slept on the bank of Shri Yamunaji. It was summer time and the forest was so dry that it went up in flames and the fire surrounded the residents of Braj. Nervous residents woke up and went to the shelter of GOD. The request they made to GOD is worth noting. They said to GOD that they are not afraid of death but they are unable to leave the association of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. After death they will have to go away from the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD, therefore, they requested GOD to protect them from the fire so that they can remain associated with the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD continuously.

A devotee continuously wants the contiguity of GOD and can never bear GOD’s separation.

They said to GOD that GOD is their only savior and their only master. They have full faith only in GOD. After listening to their humble words GOD protected them and drunk that horrid fire by His mouth. Earlier GOD drank fire in the night and this time He drank fire in the day. From this, we come to know that GOD is ever ready to protect His devotees whether it is day or night.

We should also take the shelter of only and only GOD in distress.
