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

Listening and chanting the qualities and pastimes of GOD is very blissful. Great seekers of GOD daily listen to the qualities of GOD and chants the pastimes of GOD. When GOD takes incarnation then He performs divine pastimes. His first aim is to provide ecstasy to devotees of that time. His second aim is to provide extrication to the devotees who would follow. Those devotees get extrication by listening to the pastimes and chanting the name of GOD. Listening to the qualities of GOD and chanting the pastimes of GOD is very blissful. They immediately destroy all our sins and provide us extrication.

So a creature must listen to the qualities and pastimes of GOD and chants the name of GOD daily.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must listen to the divine pastimes of GOD and chant GOD’s name.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - When GOD went on a city tour of Mathura, the women of Mathura became desperate to see GOD.

Women of Mathura have already heard about GOD. They had great reverence for GOD. From a long time, they were waiting for this moment that GOD would arrive in Mathura and they could see GOD with their eyes. They were very eager to visualize GOD. They felt that their destiny has come alive today, as GOD had come to Mathura to give them visualization. Therefore when they heard that GOD is on Mathura tour, they ran in whatever condition they were. Whatever work they were doing, they abandoned it immediately and ran to visualize GOD.

The devotee is always eager to attain the contiguity of the GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Devotees look forward to the opportunity to attain the contiguity of GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Residents of Mathura said the above words while discussing with each other.

When the residents of Mathura saw the divine vision and divine beauty of GOD, they became enchanted. They fixed the tableau of GOD in their hearts by the means of their eyes. Their distraction of many days was settled. They began to shower flowers on GOD. After watching GOD, residents of Mathura considered themselves as blessed but they considered Gopis as the most blessed who had the fortune to regularly visualize GOD. They say that what kind of austerity is done by the Gopis so that they daily visualize the loving tableau of GOD, who is the provider of ecstasy to the creatures.

When the holy deeds of several lives of a creature emerge then only he is attached to GOD and visualizes the divine tableau of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must be attached to GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - When GOD came out on the tour of Mathura then He first met to the washer man of Kans. GOD demanded clothes from him but he refused. GOD gave him a spank and his head was separated from the body.

GOD and Shri Balramji took the clothes and also gave them to herdsman children. Clothes were very big in measurement, therefore, GOD met a tailor ahead. The tailor very pleasingly made those clothes of GOD’s measurement and decorated Him. GOD was looking more glorious by being dressed in those clothes. In return, GOD pleasingly gave him wealth, strength, grandeur and His memory and also gave the salvation after his death.

On one hand, the tailor found everything on the favorable behavior towards GOD, whereas washer man did lose his own life on the adverse behavior. Favorable behavior towards GOD does the welfare of creature.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Our behavior must be favorable towards GOD.

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

GOD went to the house of Shri Sudama gardener while excursion in Mathura. He stood up and greeted GOD by bowing his head on the floor. He offered GOD to sit, washed His Divine Lotus Feet by water and worshipped GOD with the help of flowers, garland and sandalwood. He said to GOD that after the arrival of GOD his family had become pure and his life had become successful. Then what he said is worth noting. He said that today because of GOD’s service he had become free from the debt of ancestors, sages and Deities. Every creature has a debt of his ancestors, sages and Deities. Without paying these debts, a creature can never get salvation.

The principle is that when we satisfy and satiate GOD, all debts are automatically repaid. Therefore, the creature should try to satisfy and satiate GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must satisfy GOD with our devotion and love.

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

When GOD blesses the creatures, He appoints them for His work. It is a great grace of GOD that GOD employs him for His work. It is the grace of GOD on saints, sages and devotees that GOD employs them for His work. Those who are the preachers of devotion and love for GOD, this appointment are given by the grace of the GOD. Without GOD's command, no one can do GOD’s work. Until GOD will grace the creature, his mind will not be engaged in GOD’s work. Therefore those who are performing GOD’s work, we should consider them as creatures showered with GOD’s grace.

It is truly great grace of GOD when GOD employs a creature to do His work.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Due to the grace of GOD we are able to do GOD’s work.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - When GOD entered the theater on the invitation of Kans then GOD was looking very graceful.

When GOD entered the theater than the audience present there visualized GOD as per their emotions and eligibility. GOD appeared to everyone as per their feelings. But one thing was same for everyone. Whose eyes visualized GOD for once, their eyes did not move from there again. Eyes of all present persons were engaged in visualizing GOD. GOD stole their mind by His lustre. GOD has always remained first in stealing the heart and whosoever comes in the contact of GOD by whatever feeling, devotion or love, GOD steals his mind.

Therefore the creatures should try to obtain the grace of GOD.

Whosoever was sitting there was so much happy by the visualization of GOD. Eyes and face of all the viewers blossomed by the view of GOD. Their eyes were not satisfied by the view of GOD. GOD Shri Shukdevji says that it was looking like residents of Mathura were drinking the nectar of GOD by their eyes, like they were tasting GOD by their tongue, like they were smelling GOD by their nose and like they were holding GOD in their arms and were hugging Him to their heart.

Residents of Mathura considered themselves as blessed and viewed GOD. A creature should also view GOD and make his life blessed.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - The women of Mathura said the above words among themselves.

The women of Mathura praise the fortune of Gopis and say that what virtue Gopis has performed that their eyes are continuously drinking the nectar of sweetness of GOD. They are never satisfied by viewing GOD because GOD’s form is new every time. There is infinite beauty in the form of GOD. The women of Mathura say that the Gopis are blessed who sings the pastime of GOD by engaging their mind in GOD, by their heart full of love and by keeping their throat filled with the tears. While doing all the work of the world, they keep their mind focused on GOD and always keep praising the qualities of GOD.

A creature should also remember GOD while doing his daily work.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - When GOD stepped on the platform of the theater and knocked down Kans, then Kans got salvation.

Saints say that the Kans continued to constantly think about GOD with panic and fear. He visualized GOD while drinking, sleeping, walking, speaking and breathing in the form of death and kept remembering GOD in fear. By whatever aim we remember GOD, it only does our welfare. Because of this remembrance, GOD gave salvation to Kans which is even hard to get for great Yogis. GOD is so kind and merciful that He even gives the salvation to the one who spites Him. Who will be so merciful and kind in this world than GOD.

Therefore a creature must think about GOD in life so that he can achieve GOD’s grace in life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD went to Shri Sandipani saint and acquired the knowledge of sixty-four arts in sixty-four days while performing human pastime.

When GOD wanted to give the donation to guru Shri Sandipani saint, then the saint asked for his deceased son who died on being drowned. GOD reached the dwelling of Shri Yamarajji (the Deity of Death) where Shri Yamarajji felicitated and honored the GOD. GOD said to Shri Yamarajji that you have brought my guru’s son as per his bondage of deed. GOD said that I command you not to pay attention to his deeds and release him. Shri Yamarajji obeyed the order of GOD and gave the guru’s son to GOD. The thing to note here is that when GOD graces, than the creature is immediately freed from all his bondage of deeds. Shri Yamarajji also respects that creature who receives the grace of GOD.

Therefore a creature must try to achieve the grace of GOD in life by undertaking devotion.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Once who coincides with GOD, is not able to bear the separation of GOD.

When GOD went to Ujjain for studies in the hermitage of Shri Sandipani saint, it became very heavy for residents of Mathura to spend sixty-four days because they had to endure the separation of GOD. The people of Mathura were saddened without seeing the GOD and Shri Balramji for a long time. But when GOD came to Mathura after completing the studies, all the people of Mathura got immersed in ecstasy. It seemed to them as if they have regained their lost wealth. Like the residents of Braj, residents of Mathura also started loving GOD.

A creature must also deeply love GOD. We have got this human life to love and to undertake devotion of GOD.

When GOD was in Mathura, He sent His beloved friend Shri Uddhavji to Braj. GOD told him to go to Braj and meet the Gopis and give them the message of GOD and release them from their anguish. GOD said that the Gopis constantly keep their mind engaged in GOD. GOD said that the life and whole soul of the Gopis is only GOD. GOD said that the Gopis have considered GOD as their beloved and their soul. Then what GOD said is His pledge for the devotees. GOD says that those who give up temporal and eternal religion and pleasures for GOD, GOD Himself carry the burden of their full responsibility.

GOD always takes full responsibility of His dear devotees.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - The supreme beloved of the Gopis was GOD. They were fascinated by the constant remembrance of GOD.

Gopis were living their life in the separation of GOD because GOD had given them the assurance that He would come. This assurance of GOD was the basis of living their life. Gops and Gopis daily wore beautiful clothes and ornaments and waited for GOD and kept singing the beautiful characters of GOD. When Shri Uddhavji reached Braj then he saw that Gopis were very distraught for GOD and were constantly waiting for the arrival of GOD. They have decorated their homes and Braj for the arrival of GOD.

A creature must also have such distraughtness for attaining GOD in life then only it is possible to have a union with GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Uddhavji said the above words to Shri Nandji and Mother Yashodaji in Braj.

The creature who cleanses his mind at the time of death and engages it in GOD even for a moment receives the ultimate position. Such creature washes out all his bondage of deeds which are the reason of the bondage. If a creature remember GOD at the time of his death and he successfully engages his mind in GOD then his salvation is certain. Such creature achieves GOD and becomes free from the worldly cycle forever. But it is only possible if we regularly practice engaging our mind in GOD throughout the life. Even in the life span, if our mind gets engaged in GOD then only it will be possible to engage our mind in GOD in the end.

Therefore, the creature should try to engage his mind in GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - The above verse is of the beetle song where Gopis gives their message for GOD to Shri Uddhavji, targeting the beetle as a sake.

Gopis says that the one who receives the contiguity of GOD, he can never forget GOD. Association of one time of GOD makes him of GOD forever. Then the lifestyle of that person becomes Godly. When he thinks he thinks about GOD, when he weeps he weeps for GOD, when he remember he remembers only GOD, when he discuss he discuss only about GOD. Without GOD he cannot even imagine his life. GOD becomes supreme for him. Gopis are in such condition that even after wanting, they were not able to forget GOD.

The creature should also love GOD so much that he cannot live without GOD.

When Shri Uddhavji saw the anxiety of Gopis for union with GOD then he greatly respected the love of Gopis for GOD. He said that the Gopis were gratefully committed to such a blatant love for GOD. The life of Gopis is blessed and successful. Gopis are adorable all over the world because they have dedicated their heart and their everything to GOD. GOD’s loving devotion which is achieved by various means is being achieved by Gopis and they have established an ideal for this world. Shri Uddhavji said that it is a matter of great fortune that the Gopis have attained the same kind of loving devotion which is also very rarely attainable by the saint and sages.

Gopis loving devotion is an ideal for seekers and we should take motivation from it.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - GOD communicated the above mentioned words through Shri Uddhavji in a message to the Gopis.

GOD says that like the thing visible in the dream is false similarly desires of the senses are also false. Therefore the mind which thinks about desires should be stopped and must be engaged in GOD. GOD says that like all the rivers finally meet the ocean similarly all the religions and religious means are finally merge with GOD. The true result of all is an audience with GOD. That is why the creature should make an aim of the life to finally reach GOD in the end. By whatever mean he walks it is fruitful only in that condition when it takes the seeker finally to GOD for an audience with GOD.

Union with GOD should be the ultimate objective of the creature and the only purpose of life.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Gopis said the above words to Shri Uddhavji.

Gopis says that when GOD was with them in Braj, then wherever GOD had done pastimes with them, by seeing those places they are reminded of GOD. The river, the mountain, the forest where GOD has accompanied them, by seeing them, they remember the Divine pastimes of GOD. In the dust of Braj, the marks of the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD are still marked. Gopis say that even after trying hard to forget GOD, they are not able to forget GOD. The beauty of GOD, the laughter of GOD, the sweet voice of GOD has stolen the heart of the Gopis. Gopis say that their mind is not in their control, it is devoted to GOD. Therefore, even though they try to forget GOD, even then they are not able to forget GOD.

Saint and sages try to meditate upon GOD and the Gopis try to forget GOD. This is the symbol of greatness and superiority of the Gopis.

Gopis say that master of their life is only GOD. Only GOD is everything for them. Gopis say that GOD has repeatedly protected them in their distress. GOD is the LORD of Braj. Gopis have exclusively accepted GOD as their master. Accepting GOD as the real master is the pinnacle of loving devotion. Therefore Gopis are on pinnacle of loving devotion because they have exclusively accepted only GOD as their master.

The human life of a creature is only successful when he accepts GOD as his everything and accepts GOD as his only master. This is only possible if we have loving devotion for GOD in our life.

Shri Uddhavji stayed in Braj for many months and saw the pure love and tenderness of the Gopis towards GOD. Shri Uddhavji was filled with ecstasy by seeing the love of Gopis for GOD and he said that it is successful and excellent to have the body of the Gopis on Earth. GOD is the soul of Gopis and the Gopis have touched that height of love of GOD which cannot be touched even by the big sage and saint. Shri Uddhavji said that whosoever has found joy in listening to the pastimes of GOD, he did not need to do anything else. But if anyone did not find joy in listening to the pastimes of GOD or the interest in listening to the pastimes of GOD was not awakened, then such a person would not even benefit from getting the post of the Deity.

Listening to the pastimes of GOD with rapt and with joy is only possible to the fortunate.

Shri Uddhavji says that Gopis were ladies of milkmen who resided in village and were not acquainted with ethics and knowledge while GOD was Sachidanand and the master of the universe. But the strong love of the Gopis fascinated GOD. This proves that even if one loves GOD and praises GOD even without knowing the secrets of GOD and the mysteries of GOD, even then GOD automatically renders his supreme welfare with His grace and compassion. To reach GOD we only require exclusive love and selfless devotion of GOD.

Therefore the creatures should try to undertake loving devotion to reach GOD in the human life.

It is depicted in this verse that how great achievement is the loving devotion of GOD. Shri Uddhavji was most knowledgeable and beloved of GOD. GOD had sent him with His message from Mathura to Braj to console the Gopis. Shri Uddhav had come for some days thinking that he would give his knowledge and resolve the pain of separation of the Gopis. But seeing the unwavering love of the Gopis for GOD, he stayed in Braj for several months. He was so overjoyed seeing Gopis love and Gopis devotion towards GOD that he considered the Gopis as his ideal. He prayed to GOD to make him a bush, a vine or a tree of Vrindavan, so that he can become holy and blessed from getting the touch of the dust from the footsteps of Gopis.

Therefore, the creature should give love and devotion for GOD as the highest place in his life.

Shri Uddhavji says that Gopis are blessed because they have established the ideal of loving devotion for GOD by abandoning their own people and relatives and public decoroum for the sake of GOD. Because of this tenderness and ultimate love, they became united with GOD and had become one with GOD. Sruthis and Upanishads who praise GOD and are dear to GOD also try to attain GOD with love but are unable to do so. But the Gopis have attained GOD with their blatant love.

Gopis have attained that place on the basis of their intense love for GOD, which other people cannot even imagine.
