Those sages, saints and devotees who had abandoned all the things of the world and even their body, GOD gives them the donation of even Himself. It is very difficult to sacrifice all the things and desires of the world. But those who are able to do it for GOD, GOD also give Himself to them. Similarly, it is okay to nurture the body as a means to worship only but those who take away their mind from pampering the body, GOD is pleased with such creature and gives Himself to them in the donation. GOD is such a great donor that He gives even Himself to His devotees.

Therefore, the creatures should try not to get entangled in the world and should try to achieve GOD by undertaking devotion.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Shrutdev Brahmin of Shri Mithila said the above words to GOD.

Those who always listen and chant the pastimes and narrations of GOD, they are dear to GOD. Those who worship, greet and pray the idol of GOD, their heart becomes pure. The most noteworthy thing that has been said in the verse is that the people who discuss about GOD with each other, GOD gets illuminated within them. We spend our lives discussing the useless things of the world but do not discuss the grandeur, compassion, beauty, nature and effect of GOD. Sages, saints and devotees do this. Whenever they meet together the subject of their discussion is always GOD.

The creature should also discard the waste discussion of the world and take interest in the discussion of GOD only, then only his salvation is possible.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Shrutdev Brahmin of Shri Mithila said the above words to GOD.

As long as our eyes do not visualize GOD, there is suffering in life. Therefore, the scriptures have made the law of seeing the GOD's image every day. Visualizing the image of GOD brings the end of sufferings and sins of our life. Therefore we should make a rule to visualize GOD daily. This is the surest way of destroying the suffering of life. Scripture says that if the visualization of GOD’s image with emotions is performed every day, then only the vision of GOD ensures the end of all our sufferings. Therefore, we should make a rule and take all the members of the house and especially the children in the Thakurbari (GOD’s palace inside the house) or in the temple near the house to view the GOD’s idol.

The vision of GOD is always capable of destroying our suffering and grieves.

It is one of my favorite verse because in this glory of devotion is described. GOD Shri Shukdevji says that just as the devotee is grateful to undertake the devotion of GOD, GOD is also pleased by undertaking the devotion of His devotees. GOD is everything for the devotee and devotee is also everything for GOD. If the devotee walks two steps towards GOD, then GOD takes four steps towards the devotee. GOD gives great honor and respect to His devotees. For Him, His devotee holds the highest position.

Therefore, if one has to become the beloved of GOD in life than the devotion of GOD should always be performed in life.

In the morning some people come to the emperor to awaken the emperor of a kingdom and awaken him by singing the emperor's power and goodness. Likewise, when GOD sleeps by absorbing all the powers of the world in Him, then at the end of the holocaust, the Shrutis awakens GOD by saying the word of praise to GOD. Shrutis sings the glory of GOD. They say to GOD that GOD is invincible and is the best. They say to GOD that you are full of all the grandeur and are the owner of illusion. Whatever actions and powers are there in the world, the creator of all those is only GOD. While singing the glory of GOD Shrutis say that they are completely incapable of describing the glory of GOD.

Shrutis say that all the creatures of the world are wandering in the delusion of GOD’s illusion. They are a part of GOD, but by considering themselves as separate from GOD, they are engaged in the cycle of birth and death. But those wise men who understand this delusion take refuge in GOD with complete devotion. The surrender to GOD is the only means that is going to liberate the creature from the cycle of birth and death. Therefore, the ultimate welfare of the creature lies in the fact that he should worship GOD and take His shelter. The person who is devoted to GOD will only accept the shelter of GOD. The creature who accepts the shelter of GOD can only be free from the horrendous cycle of birth and death.

Therefore the creature should infuse the devotion towards GOD inside him and take the shelter of GOD.

Shrutis say that GOD is inviolate ecstasy form. In the world, we can find happiness, but ecstasy which is very big than happiness, can only be found in the contiguity of GOD. The ecstasy that comes with the contiguity of GOD is inviolate. The happiness of the entire world is also not inviolate because after little happiness we have to bear a lot of afflictions. In the world, we accept the absence of grief as happiness. Another thing which is said in the verse is that GOD is the soul of the surrender. GOD takes the full responsibility of that creature, who takes His shelter. Therefore, the scriptures have given a very high position to the surrender to GOD by considering it as very great.

Therefore a creature must reside in the shelter of inviolate ecstasy form GOD.

It is not possible for anyone to even imagine about GOD’s grandeur, glory and prosperity. Scriptures, sages, saints and devotees sing the glory of GOD’s grandeur, glory and prosperity and become silent by saying that they are infinite.

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

GOD vows to produce the world and gets situated in its beginning, in the middle and at the end. GOD is the owner of both nature and the creature. After achieving GOD creature becomes free from illusion. Like a man engaged in sleep forgets the goodness of his body, similarly, the creature forgets the illusion after having received the contiguity of GOD. Therefore, whosoever has associated himself with GOD, the illusion cannot influence him. The simplest way to be free from illusion is to associate a relationship with the owner of illusion through devotion. Illusion makes the creature dance to its tune and entangles the creature in this world. Therefore to be free from the effect of illusion we should go in the contiguity of GOD.

The creature should go in the protection of GOD through devotion, to free himself from the influence of illusion.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must associate ourselves with GOD to be free from worldly illusion.
