TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Deities said the above words while praying to GOD.

Deities say to GOD that GOD has flown two pure rivers to wash off the sins of His devotees. One is the river of narration of nectar full pastime which destroys the sins of creatures. Another is Bhagwati Shree Gangaji which has emerged from the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD, which also destroys all the sins of creatures. Therefore, those who are prudent men, consume both the pilgrimages by diving through the body in Bhagwati Shree Gangaji and by listening to the narration of GOD from ears. By doing so they become free from all their sins and heats.

Sins of a creature can be destroyed only by remaining in the contiguity of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. The contiguity of GOD destroys all the sins of a creature.

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

GOD Shree Brahmaji says that GOD took incarnation on request of Deities to unload the weight of Mother Earth. According to the request of Deities, GOD completed all work of His incarnation reasonably. For the welfare of sages GOD reinstalled the religion and while doing so whatever sweet pastime GOD performed, their glory got spread everywhere. By singing the glory of GOD people can clean the dirt of their mind. GOD performed several pastimes full of generosity and power in His incarnations. In Kaliyug (modern era) those who will listen and chant these pastimes of GOD they will very easily cross this ignorant darkness and will cross the worldly ocean.

Therefore the creature must listen and chant the pastime narration of GOD daily.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. By listening to the pastime narration of GOD, a creature can easily cross the worldly ocean.

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

When Shri Uddhavji heard that Yaduvansh has been affected by the curse of Brahmins that they will be destroyed and if GOD wanted He could have removed that curse but GOD did not do so, then Shri Uddhavji understood that after demolishing Yaduvansh GOD wanted to wind up His pastime and wanted to go back to His dwelling. Then Shri Uddhavji said to GOD that he cannot even think to abandon the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD for a split second. GOD is his everything and his owner. Therefore he requested GOD that GOD should shower such grace on him that he should not encounter separation from GOD and GOD should also take him to His dwelling.

True devotion is that the devotee always wants to remain in contiguity of GOD and even cannot imagine the separation from GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. A devotee cannot even imagine the separation from GOD for a split second.

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

Shri Uddhavji says to GOD that every pastime of GOD is ultimately blissful and is nectar form for the ears of the creature. Anyone who has once embraced the juice of narration of GOD then no other desire remains in his mind. Shri Uddhavji says that when this is the situation of those who listen to the narration of GOD then he has directly experienced the association of GOD and has performed every deed with GOD. Then he cannot even imagine the separation from GOD. Shri Uddhavji says that the loving devotee of GOD cannot even imagine the separation from GOD then for him it is utterly impossible.

There is such a relationship between the devotee and GOD that they both want a union of each other.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

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

Upon hearing that GOD will return to His dwelling, Shri Uddhavji was distracted by the imagination of the separation from GOD. How much Shri Uddhavji loved GOD, we can know this fact from the sentiments he expressed to GOD. Shri Uddhavji says that while residing with GOD he has worn the garland worn by GOD, sandal applied by GOD, clothes used by GOD and the ornaments held by GOD as a divine offering from GOD. Shri Uddhavji says to GOD that he has always been the servant who ate the leavings of GOD. His pride was in it that he used the things of GOD and ate the leavings of GOD.

The statement of Shri Uddhavji expresses the feelings of a true devotee towards GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION

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

Shri Uddhavji says to GOD that he will discuss the qualities and the pastimes of GOD with the devotees of GOD. Whatever GOD has said and done in His incarnation period, he will remember and chant it. There is no bigger advantage and joy than discussing about GOD and by remembering and recollecting the pastimes of GOD. Shri Uddhavji says that he is convinced that by doing so he will cross the illusion of GOD. It is very difficult to be retired from illusion, but the one who constantly meditates on GOD and remembers the pastimes of GOD and chants them crosses the illusion of the GOD.

Therefore the creatures should discuss about GOD and should remember and chant GOD’s pastimes.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD is the only subject of discussion for a devotee.

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

GOD said to Shri Uddhavji that He took incarnation on request on Deities to unload the weight of Earth. He has completed all the work of incarnation. Now the moment GOD will return to His dwelling from Earth, all the auspiciousness of the Earth will be destroyed. One fact is rendered from the above statement of GOD that where GOD is, auspiciousness is also there. When GOD goes, auspiciousness also goes with GOD. Therefore it is necessary and compulsory to keep GOD in center of life. By doing so auspiciousness will also stay in our life.

Therefore the creature who wants auspiciousness in his life, he should remain in the contiguity of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Where GOD is, auspiciousness will stay at that place.

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

GOD says that He has created several bodies of one leg, two legs, three legs, four legs, more than four legs and also bodies without legs. But GOD says that in all of them He loves the human body most. It is so because human is fully capable of judging his interests and harm by his direct experience and estimation. GOD considers the human body to be the best because humans can reach GOD by performing means and can be free from the worldly cycle forever.

Therefore the creatures should understand the importance of the human body and should utilize it to achieve GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD reckons human birth to be best means to attain Him.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Dattatreyji said the above words to King Yadu.

In this verse the glory of Bhagwati Mother Shree Gangaji is stated. The vision of Bhagwati Mother Shree Gangaji leads to auspiciousness. The touch of Bhagwati Mother Shree Gangaji purifies us. Pronunciation of the name of Bhagwati Mother Shree Gangaji increases our virtues. Bhagwati Mother Shree Gangaji is a Deity river and the grace of all the three GOD is on Her. She has emerged from the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD Shree Vishnuji and has been retained into the ewer of GOD Shree Brahmaji. After emerging from the ewer of GOD Shree Brahmaji, She has flown on the divine head of GOD Shree Mahadevji and from there She comes to Earth and provides salvation to everyone.

We should always keep motherly feeling in Bhagwati Mother Shree Gangaji because She provides us the desired thing like a mother.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should worship Bhagwati Mother Shree Gangaji as a GODDESS Mother.

When the pigeon and his wife returned back and saw that their children were being trapped in the net, they also jumped into the net in deep grievance and also got trapped. After watching this Shri Dattatreyji said that human body is the open door for salvation. We have got this human body only for salvation. But after getting this if anyone is trapped like that pigeon in household activities than he misses to utilize his human body.

Therefore we must do the means of salvation after getting this human body then only our life will be considered successful.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Dattatreyji said the above words to King Yadu.

Shri Dattatreyji considered Shri Samudradevji (ocean) as his master and took education from him that the seeker who seeks GOD should always remain happy and serious. Feeling of the seeker towards GOD should be unending, immense and infinite. Like Shri Samudradevji never increase due to flood in rivers in the rainy season and never decrease in summer season because of heat similarly a seeker should not feel very happy on receipt on worldly things and should not be sad on the loss of worldly things. A seeker must be satisfied according to the things received as per his fortune then only he will be able to move forward on the devotional path.

A seeker must remain happy and serious and become satisfied and should maintain his unending feelings towards GOD.

Therefore we should utilize this human life to achieve GOD by performing various means. The best means to attain GOD is devotion. All the scriptures and saints have the same opinion that to achieve GOD and to be free from worldly cycle we should undertake devotion of GOD.

Therefore the creature must undertake devotion of GOD and try to achieve GOD in life and thus make his human life successful.

Shri Dattatreyji says that he made Pingla his master, who became reclusive from this world. As soon as she became reclusive she started having faith in GOD. She said in my heart nearest to me my true owner my GOD is residing. GOD is the only giver of real pleasure, love and charity form of true wealth. The world is not constant, only GOD is eternal. Those who leave GOD and involve themselves in the world, the world does not fulfill any of their desire, it only gives grief, fear, tragedy and mourning. It is our foolishness that we involve with the world and while doing so we forget GOD.

Therefore the creature must love GOD by forgetting the world.

GOD is residing in everyone’s heart. GOD is the true well wisher of all creatures. GOD is the lover of all creatures because he loves all the creatures. GOD is the soul of all the creatures. GOD is also the owner of all the creatures. By leaving such ultimate lover GOD we should not get attracted towards the world. Reclusion from the world gives pleasure because when we experience reclusion from the world then only love towards GOD arises in our mind else the creature is engaged only in the world. We must take the shelter of GOD and should accept the favours of GOD by respectfully bowing our head.

The creature should make his closest relation only with GOD.

TRANSLATION OF WRITE-UP IN ENGLISH - Shri Dattatreyji said the above words to King Yadu.

The creature has fallen into the well of the world. The subjects of the world have made him blind. His entire life is being wasted in contemplating the subjects and enjoying the subjects. The death form of dragon has suppressed him in his mouth and can swallow him anytime. The creature can die at any moment. The creature who is in the gulp of death still remains inattentive. In such a situation only GOD can protect him. Other than GOD no one is capable of protecting the creature. Yet the misfortune of the creature is that he does not turn towards GOD and keep himself engaged in the consumption of worldly things.

It is necessary for the creatures to be disinclined from the subjects and turn back to GOD then only his salvation is possible.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must turn towards GOD then only our salvation is possible.

Shree Dattatreyji says that a spider spreads the net from her mouth and then wanders on it and swallows it back in the end. Similarly, GOD generates this world from His inside and then indulges in this world in the form of the creature and in last at the time of holocaust everything is absorbed in GOD. Therefore the scriptures and saints have seen the world full of GOD. Scripture says that there is nothing else in the world except one GOD. There is no existence of anyone other than GOD in the world. Saints also saw the world as full of GOD and therefore, in the world, they visualized GOD everywhere.

Devotees always visualize GOD everywhere because they see the whole universe full of GOD.

The worm trapped inside contemplates the Bhringi worm by fear and receives the form of Bhringi.

By regularly contemplating GOD we can visualize GOD.

Then He created the human body. GOD gave such wisdom to the human body that he can get an audience with GOD. After creating human, GOD was happy and pleased. Therefore the human species is very rare in all other species. We should utilize it for achieving GOD.

Until his virtues were remaining he was in heaven and as his virtues got exhausted he has to fall regardless of his wishes.

If we are not selfless in devotion, whatever we seek from GOD we get easily but we do not get GOD. But if we are selfless, GOD automatically fulfills all our needs and He even becomes available for us. All the great devotees have performed selfless devotion of GOD and had achieved GOD in the end.
