It is a mistake to call the birds and animals of Vrindavan as birds and animals because, in reality, they were best Deities, sages and saints who have taken birth in the pastime location of GOD to participate in GOD’s pastime. These birds and animals seated near GOD while He played the flute and got overjoyed after watching the pleasantness of GOD’s beauty.

To achieve the contiguity of GOD all animals, birds, trees and creepers were eager. GOD included everyone in His pastime and gave them the donation of pleasure.

Gopis says that each and everything of Vrindavan is fascinated by GOD and even the clouds of the sky also earnestly want to serve GOD. While serving cows when GOD played flute then the heart of the cloud gets filled with love. They hover above GOD for shadow and make themselves an umbrella so as to give comfort to GOD. They shower tiny little spray of water to cool GOD. It seems like they adore GOD by offering Him saffron. In this way, clouds also sacrifice their life for the service of GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - One principle is rendered here that if we have done any error or offence then it can be rectified by taking the shelter of GOD who is the witness of all our deeds.

A creature performs errors and offences in life. It is the nature of the creature that he makes mistakes. There is only one rectification of this that we should take the shelter of GOD who is the witness of all our deeds, should do true repentance after making apologies to GOD for offence and should take a resolution not to repeat the offence again in life. If we do so then GOD immediately pardons us for all our errors and offences.

GOD is the idol of forgiveness and forgives all our errors and offences immediately.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD forgives our sins if we go in the shelter of GOD and do true repentance.

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

GOD says that those who have dedicated their mind and life to GOD they do not have any wish of the fulfillment of any worldly desire. Their wishes are not capable to pursue them and take them towards worldly pleasures. GOD gives a parable that if we sow boiled or fried seeds then they will not germinate similarly the wish of worldly desires never germinate in the heart of GOD’s devotees. That creature who has dedicated himself to GOD is not attracted by any worldly desires.

So a creature must live his life by dedicating himself to GOD so that he is not trapped in the slough of worldly desires.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Once while serving cows with herdsman children GOD went far enough in the forest. Herdsman children felt hungry then they told it to GOD. GOD did this pastime to grace the Brahmins wives.

GOD said to herdsman children that few Brahmins are doing Yagna (religious sacrifice) at some distance from here. Go there and bring some food material by telling the name of GOD. Brahmins were engaged in big Yagnas for an insignificant return like heaven and so they did not pay any attention to the supplication of herdsman children. Then GOD again sent those herdsman children to the Brahmin wives with supplication. Those Brahmin wives have devoted their heart in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD after listening about the qualities, pastimes, beauty and pleasantness of GOD. Therefore they immediately went to GOD with food supplies regardless of being blocked by their brothers, husbands and sons.

A creature must try to understand the godliness of GOD and must keep a desire to serve GOD and unite with GOD and should not be engaged only in performing rituals.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should have a desire to serve GOD and unite with GOD.

One principle is rendered here. The principle is that once who achieve GOD he never needs to come back to the world. Until we have not achieved GOD we are caught in the worldly cycle by being trapped in the cycle of birth and death. But when we achieve GOD then our intercommunication from this world gets over forever and we never need to return back to the world. We become free from the cycle of birth and death forever. The cycle of birth and death is only till we do not achieve GOD.

So a creature must try to achieve GOD is his human life so that he never have to come into the world again.

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

In above words, there is a primacy of expression of surrender to GOD. What prayer we should do after coming in the shelter of GOD, a beautiful parable is described here for this. Brahmin wives said to GOD that now they have come in the shelter of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. There is no other support for them from anyone other than the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD.

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

Brahmin wives went to meet GOD even after the denial of their brother, husband and sons. Therefore they were afraid that on return their brother, husband and sons will reproach them.

Therefore GOD consoled them by saying that now they are under the shelter of GOD and have become of GOD so now not only their family but the entire world will honor them. From the words of GOD, a principle is rendered here. The principle is that the creature who becomes of GOD is honored by the entire world. Such creatures become blest for everyone. Examples of this are our sages, saints and devotees.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Brahmins said the above words while talking to each other.

When Brahmin wives came back after giving food supplies to GOD and achieving the contiguity of GOD and Brahmins came to know that GOD is the supreme LORD performing pastime as a human then they regretted badly. After watching the divine love for GOD in the heart of their wives and not finding the same in their own heart Brahmins regretted, condemned and damned themselves. Their wives, who have not performed any righteous deeds, had a deep love in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD but even after performing righteous deeds Brahmins were not able to generate love towards the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. They believed it as GOD’s grace that the GOD had warned them and made them aware of their mistake.

Maxim is that the extract of all our deeds is to develop love and devotion towards GOD. Until that does not happen, our deed will not prove to be meaningful.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. All our deeds must generate our love and devotion for GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Brahmins said the above words while talking to each other.

When the Brahmins regretted for not achieving the contiguity of GOD and they damned themselves but they also got a consolation. They considered it as their ultimate fortune that they are so blessed to have received such wives who love GOD so much. The thing remarkable to note here is that the Brahmins accepted that because of love and devotion of their wives towards GOD now their intellect is also full of love for GOD. When any member of the family undertakes the devotion of GOD then his ordination of devotion gradually affect others and becomes an inspiration for them for undertaking GOD’s devotion.

In any family where there is a true devotee of GOD, then that whole family gets blessed.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. When any member of family undertakes devotion of GOD, that act of devotion becomes a blessing for the entire family.

Here too, the main emotion is of surrender to GOD. When GOD enabled worship of GOD Shri Girirajji then Shri Indradevji became angry and called the catastrophic clouds and ordered them to drown Braj in water by pouring heavy torrential thunderstorms. Catastrophic clouds started throwing thick streams of water on Braj and every corner of Braj was filled by water and all residents started chilling and trembling with cold. Then all of them came to the shelter of GOD. They surrendered to GOD and said to GOD that their only protector and owner is only GOD. They requested devotee lover GOD to protect them.

It is the vow of GOD that when anyone comes to the shelter and asks for protection, GOD makes him dauntless. When residents of Braj went in the shelter of GOD for the protection from Shri Indradevji’s anger then GOD took an oath to protect them. GOD saw that all residents are dependent on Him and only consider Him as their protector. So GOD took the responsibility of protection on Him. When any creature who had surrendered to GOD calls GOD for protection then GOD always holds the responsibility of his protection.

So a creature must take the shelter of GOD and should pray to GOD for protection in distress.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - To save the residents of Braj from Shri Indradevji’s anger GOD held Shri Girirajji (mountain) on the nail of His little finger as if He was playing a game.

Then GOD called all the residents of Braj to come and sit in the pit made by lifting the mountain along with their family and cows. GOD gave them consolation and said that He had framed this tactic to protect them from the thunderstorm and heavy rain. Then GOD abandoned His hunger and thirst, forgot the need of His rest and lifted Shri Girirajji for seven days on His nail of the little finger. GOD did not move even a single step in those seven days. GOD can do anything to fulfill the vow He gave for the protection of the one who surrenders to Him. GOD can never let any ominous happen to the one who surrenders to Him.

Nothing is greater than GOD’s shelter in life, therefore, a creature should always surrender completely to GOD.

Shri Indradevji appeared in front of GOD to apologize for his offence. His ego was no more that he was the owner of all the three worlds. He said to GOD that GOD is the supreme Father of this universe. He said to GOD that GOD is the master of this universe. Therefore in all Holy Scriptures GOD has been entitled as the master of the universe. He said to GOD that the only owner of this universe is also GOD.

Therefore we should also visualize GOD as a father of this universe, master of this universe and owner of this universe. When we do so then GOD holds our responsibility as our father, guide us like a master and grace us like an owner.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD said the above words to Shri Indradevji.

Here GOD has rendered one fact. GOD says that I destroy of the richness of those to whom I favor. We can visualize this fact in the life of devotees that GOD destroyed their richness to take them out from worldly illusion and to attract them towards Him. As long as there is a charm of money, wealth, splendor and grandeur in the mind of the creature, he cannot achieve GOD. Therefore GOD destroys the richness from the life of His true devotees so that he could be qualified to reach GOD by walking on the path of devotion with reclusiveness.

A devotee can have reclusiveness and reach GOD, therefore, GOD graces him by removing richness of this world from his life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
