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

This is an immortal stanza of the SriMad Bhagwat GeetaMaa in which GOD renders one of His vows. GOD says that whenever there is a loss of religion and there is an increase in unrighteousness and because of that increase in unrighteousness, morality and rites of people fall, then to stop that fall GOD takes incarnation. When the atrocities of atheists, sinners and abusers increase on GOD lovers, religious persons, righteous and weak, then GOD incarnates to eliminate the atrocities. Whenever there is a decline in religion and unrighteousness gets primacy, GOD incarnates to re-establish the religion. When there is interference made by the demonic powers in the rules made by GOD to govern the world, then GOD appears to correct them.

How great is this assurance of GOD that GOD is always available to correct everything. If this assurance was not there from GOD and the demonic forces in the world were in sway then all would be disappointed that there is no one to save and protect them from this situation. Howsoever the situation may be unfavorable, everything is always under the control of GOD. It is the principle that the universe can never be out of control of GOD.

When GOD has assured the creature that GOD is always available to make favorable all the adverse conditions then the creature becomes relaxed and fearless. Giving this relaxation and fearlessness to the creature is such a big favor of GOD and gift of GOD to the creature. The biggest religion of the creature is to take the shelter of GOD, all the rest is the work of GOD.

GOD protects the world but particularly He protects His devotees and takes over all their responsibility.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. The vow of GOD to protect the creature amidst all adversities at all times is the greatest assurance available to mankind.

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

Persons equipped with sinful deeds propagate unrighteousness and harm the religion, therefore GOD incarnates for their destruction. One name of GOD is "BhaktaBhaktimaan" in Shrimad Bhagwatji Mahapuran. Therefore, GOD, Himself comes to destroy the wicked who oppress the devotees.Those who commit sins and persecute the devotees of GOD, GOD comes to destroy them. GOD cannot bear the suffering of His devotees and He comes to rescue them from the suffering.

When GOD destroys sinners and wicked people, He indirectly blesses them too, because by being destroyed by the divine hands of GOD they become pure and holy. GOD is the Father of all, therefore no one can be harmed by Him, no matter how great sinful or wicked he is. There is generosity and equality for everyone in the heart of GOD. GOD is not against the wicked and sinners, but He is against their misdeeds. So He destroys the wicked and sinners for their own welfare. The wicked and sinners who are killed by GOD reaches the dwelling of GOD, how great is this grace and mercy of GOD.

GOD incarnates to re-establish the eternal religion. Religion is never destroyed, only depreciated, and to correct this depreciation, GOD comes. Without taking incarnation, GOD can also do everything only by resolution while sitting in His dwelling. But when He appears after taking incarnation, He performs such pastimes that by listening to them, the future creatures can get salvation through union with GOD. Because of listening, thinking and meditating the pastimes of GOD and by following teachings of the GOD, the future generations can get salvation hence GOD incarnates.

The main purpose of GOD’s incarnation is to please His devotees. GOD incarnates to please and fulfill the wishes of His devotees in the incarnation period. This is the feeling of all the saints which seems to be the best reason for GOD’s incarnation.

  1. GOD incarnates to please His devotees and make them experience ecstasy.

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

When GOD incarnates on Earth, His birth is divine. Every deed of GOD in the incarnation period is divine. Every smallest and largest action of GOD is a pastime, which is divine and unique. GOD incarnates with the purpose of welfare of the creatures and performs supernatural pastimes. The relationship with GOD is established by singing, listening, reading and thinking about the pastimes of GOD. On being connected with GOD our relation with the world takes a backseat. After knowing the elements of the birth and deeds of GOD, the attraction towards the perishable substances of the world is eradicated forever.

The person who is able to understand the divine birth and divine elements of GOD is attracted towards GOD and gets engaged in the devotion of GOD. The devotion of GOD develops the love for GOD in the heart of that creature. With the intense anxiety for GOD, the work of union with GOD is achieved. The creature does not have to do anything to be of GOD, as he is of GOD only. When he realizes his relationship with GOD, he begins to experience the constant connection with GOD. The creature has a self-reliant relationship with GOD. The eternal relationship of the creature is with GOD only.

The one who discovers GOD attempts to achieve GOD in his life by making it a goal of life. When we take a step forward towards GOD, GOD also takes ten steps to reach us. The creature who succeeds in attaining the contiguity of GOD because of his devotion recognizes the divinity and GOD element of GOD. The person who is able to do so does not have to take birth again as he achieves GOD by reaching the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. Then he becomes free forever from the journey in this death world.

Therefore we should try to know and understand GOD by undertaking the devotion of GOD and should establish an eternal relationship with GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. When we are able to understand our eternal relationship with GOD, we seek a union with GOD by undertaking devotion of GOD.

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

The more raptly we will take shelter of GOD, in the same way, GOD will also provide supreme shelter to us. By whichever feeling and relation we take the shelter of GOD, GOD also provides us the shelter with the same feeling and relation. If we take the shelter of GOD like a son then He gives us the shelter like our supreme Father. If we take the shelter of GOD like a student then He gives us the shelter like our Master. However, the best method is to take the shelter of GOD in the form of a devotee because devotion has so much capability that it even makes GOD anxious to give shelter to the devotee.

Whatever faith we have, the nature of the GOD is to deliver the same. How generous, compassion and grace of GOD are there that, despite being the Master of an infinite universe, He becomes according to the wishes of the devotee. The devotees cannot live without GOD and GOD also cannot live without the devotee. The feeling of surrender is better than the feeling of servant, feeling of friend, feeling of parent and the feeling of love. GOD never abandons the creatures who come under His shelter. It is such a big grace of GOD that He never views any previous account of the devotee, who takes His shelter. If GOD did so then we can never be eligible for His shelter. But all the creatures become eligible to take the shelter of GOD.

The one who gives his complete self-surrender to GOD and offers all his things to GOD, then GOD also gives Himself to him. The creature should believe only GOD as his own and should consider himself only of GOD because this is the simplest way of attaining GOD. The work of GOD is to undertake the welfare of the creature, so with whatever emotions the creature comes to GOD, his welfare is always endorsed. Whosoever have come to GOD even with animosity or fear GOD had only done his welfare. The generosity of the GOD is immense. That is why GOD should be considered as paramount in life.

It is a principle that whatever relation creature assumes with GOD, GOD also considers that same relationship with the creature. Therefore, we must take the shelter of GOD by establishing a relationship and should not expect anything from GOD but should expect only GOD from GOD. The creature who endorses his relation only with GOD finds the shelter of GOD. After getting the shelter of GOD, the creature becomes relaxed, fearless, mourn free and doubtless.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Our paramount duty in life must be to take the shelter of GOD.

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

The devotional path is most accessible. It is the feeling of every devotee who undertakes devotion that everything belongs to GOD, therefore, it must be used only for GOD. Whatever a devotee does, he does only for GOD. The creature must only keep one desire to attain GOD. Whosoever keeps such desire his feeling reaches GOD. Even if a great miscreant person decides that now he will worship GOD, then his welfare is assured very soon.

When a creature gets engaged in the intense devotion of GOD then he immediately gets freed from the effect of illusion. Therefore we must undertake selfless and unshakable devotion of GOD. We must perform deed to experience the infallible GOD. Deeds should not be performed for achieving the destructive pleasures of this world and the afterworld. The creature is the regular servant of GOD, therefore, he must perform his deeds only for GOD. If the deeds will be performed for GOD then we will get the feeling of divine pleasure while executing them.

A devotee who is attached to GOD is attracted towards GOD and his dear most is also GOD. If a man is attracted to GOD then he soon gets raptly devoted to GOD. When such a condition comes, the devotee is constantly engrossed in GOD at all times. We should continue to serve GOD after treating ourselves as the eternal servant of GOD. We should establish a direct relationship with GOD. Our attraction should only be towards GOD. The creature is an integral part of GOD, so his life is only for the service of GOD. Therefore, without the awakening of strong devotion, a creature cannot progress. To attain GOD should be the purpose of the life then all our actions will be performed for GOD.

Therefore the creatures should take the shelter of devotion in his life so that he can attain GOD with ease in his life. The effort of the creature should be in this direction only.

  1. Attaining GOD though devotion should be the only purpose of human life.

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

The devotee does all his deeds for GOD and after doing it offer it to GOD. By performing the deed for GOD and by offering it to GOD he is not bonded in the bondage of deed. Just as the lotus leaf which is produced in water, even while staying in the water, remains untouched by water, similarly the devotee remains unaffected by his deeds due to performing the deed for GOD and offering the deed to GOD. The devotee believes that all the things in this world belong to GOD and GOD is their only Master.

The devotee considers himself as an eternal servant of GOD and does not perform any other deed except performing the deed for GOD. Freedom from the bondage of deeds is possible only when the creatures do everything for GOD and dedicate it to GOD. The person who awakens the essence of devotion within himself, he changes the direction of his actions. Firstly he used to work for the world and for his pleasure, but after the awakening of devotion, all his deeds are performed for GOD.

If the mind is continuously engaged in the service of GOD, then there is no possibility of our senses going anywhere else. If the mind is engaged in service of GOD, then the attraction of the trivial worldly desires ends. It is an eternal law that the man having worldly desires can never escape from grief and sin. If you wish for the world, then you will have to suffer grief and you will have to undergo the sin. At the time when the creature abandons all worldly desires in his mind, at the same time he starts experiencing the contiguity of GOD. Therefore, it is very useful and necessary to strengthen the devotion to eradicate all the desires.

Therefore, the creature should sacrifice the worldly desire and whatever deeds he performs in life should be for GOD and should be offered to GOD, so that he could be relieved from sorrow and sin forever.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. In order to escape from sorrow and sin in life, we must perform all deeds for GOD and devote all our deeds to GOD.

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

GOD says that those creatures who dedicate all his deeds to GOD attain the ultimate peace. The one who does not do so bears the result of his actions and stays bounded. We belong to the GOD and our mind, intellect and body are the property of GOD. Therefore, whatever is done with our mind, intellect and body, it must be done for GOD. Secondly, whatever we do in the world, we must dedicate it to GOD. When this happens, we get away from the bondage of those deeds and become free and the results of it are that those deeds do not bind us.

Those deeds which are not performed for GOD and are performed for the world, they create the deed bondage. Those deeds which are not offered to GOD, they awaken the desire of deed result and put us in bondage. Just as the fire never ceases on getting continuous fuel, similarly we never get satisfaction in performing deeds for the world. The deed done for GOD and the deed dedicated to GOD satisfies us and provides us peace also. Therefore we should employ all the deeds of our life in the service of GOD.

GOD is known as Rishikesh means He is the owner of all our senses. Therefore every deed performed by our senses must be for GOD and for the happiness of GOD. The body, senses, mind and intellect that we have belongs to GOD because we also belong to GOD. Therefore, they should be used for doing such acts which are meant for GOD. We should believe that we are the eternal servant of GOD and the purpose of our life should be to perform deeds for GOD. Those who understand his eternal relationship with GOD becomes dedicated to GOD.

Therefore, we should dedicate ourselves to GOD by devotion and should perform all the work for GOD and by offering them to GOD so that we can be free from the deed bondage and also attain the feeling of ecstasy.

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

Our victory over our mind is the biggest victory. It is our mind that runs towards the world. Illusion affects our mind and attracts it towards the subjects of the world. We should not waste our priceless and salvation provider time in pursuing the meaningless resolutions of this world. It can only happen when we will win over our mind. Conquering the mind can only be done by devotion, because when a devotee is fully engaged in the divine love of GOD then he is not motivated by sensual pleasures and selfish deeds.

When the mind is conquered by devotion, then our mind begins to obey the commands of GOD. We should always keep our mind continuously focused on GOD. The mind which does not contemplate GOD, that mind is absorbed in the world. Therefore, our mind should be engaged in the contemplation of GOD. When the mind is contemplating the world than the attraction of the world increases and when the same mind changes from the world to GOD, then the divine attraction of GOD awakens in that mind.

All the saints and devotees have pulled their mind from the world and have concentrated it in GOD. Devotion is the mean which makes it easy for us to do so. Through devotion, we are mortified from the world, and GOD becomes very dear to us. There are no other means other than the devotion that can control our mind so well. Devotion diverts our mind from the world to GOD.

Therefore, the creature must win over his mind by taking the shelter of devotion. If the mind diverts away from the world and starts concentrating in GOD, then we must believe that we have conquered our mind.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must practice devotion through which we are able to divert our mind from the world towards GOD.

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

Our mind cannot stand and wait anywhere. Therefore GOD has called the mind as unstable. Our mind keeps contemplating various worldly pleasures and substances. Therefore GOD has called the mind fickle. But the only way to subdue this mind is to concentrate it in GOD. It is the best way to put the mind in GOD. The mind should be retrenched from wherever it goes and must be made to concentrate in GOD. Our mind should be concerned only and only with GOD.

We should explain to our mind that happiness cannot be found when it focuses on the world from where only sorrows are afflicted. Therefore, it is best to remove the mind from the world and concentrate it in GOD. If our mind gets immersed in contemplation of GOD, then while contemplating GOD, the mind attains GOD. Except for GOD, there is no other second power in the universe. Therefore, our mind should only get used to contemplating GOD. As the mind will contemplate and meditate on GOD, it will begin to concentrate on GOD.

We should put our mind on a rule that it will never infringe on what we have decided which is to undertake the contemplation of GOD. The mind should never be set free and open and it should be pulled back to GOD from wherever it goes. The one who is able to control his mind and is able to put it in contemplation of GOD, he has attained a great achievement. The speed of the mind is faster than that of the air and in a blink, it can reach anywhere. It can only and only be controlled by putting it in GOD.

Therefore in life, we must practice that our mind should always be engaged in GOD. If the mind starts to concentrate in GOD, then it will give us the feeling of ecstasy because of the contiguity of GOD.

  1. We should be able to draw our mind from the world and concentrate it in contemplation of GOD.

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

It is a very high state of devotion to see the presence of GOD in all particles. Without GOD, there is no existence of anything in the world. The whole world is in the form of GOD. The abode of GOD is everywhere. That is why the devotee visualizes GOD in all. The devotee Shri Prahladji visualized GOD in a pillar and GOD appeared from that pillar and showed that wherever the devotee sees GOD, GOD remains there.

The devotee sees GOD everywhere and in all creatures. The devotee sees the whole universe in GOD. GOD showed Shri Arjunji His divine form and in it he saw that everything existed in GOD. All creations and millions of universes are stationed in a pore of GOD. The devotee who is able to experiences this, GOD is never invisible to him. The devotee who learns the art of visualizing GOD everywhere, then where will GOD hide from him.

GOD says that the devotee who is able to visualize GOD everywhere is always dear to GOD. Such a devotee does not have any animosity or hostility with anyone because he experiences his GOD in every creature. When there is GOD within him and the same GOD is there within the opposite person, then to whom the devotee will hate or be hostile. The spirit of hatred and hostility which is there in the world is because we have not yet learned the art of visualizing GOD everywhere. The sages, saints and devotees have always visualized GOD in all.

Seeing GOD everywhere and seeing GOD forever is a perfect state of devotion. In view of such devotees, GOD is never invisible and such devotees are also never invisible in the sight of GOD. Such devotees always remember GOD and GOD also always remember such devotees.

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

The creature who undertakes the devotion of GOD and serve GOD with devotion, they are situated by GOD in Himself. The devotee is an integral part of GOD. There is no difference between the devotee and GOD. Devotion is most adored by GOD, therefore the person who serves GOD by taking shelter of devotion is very dear to GOD. The devotee places GOD in his heart and GOD also places the devotee in His heart.

The devotee is always successful in achieving the contiguity of GOD. GOD is always available for the devotee. Serving GOD with devotion is the only goal in the life of the devotee. The devotee never gets trapped in the world after being born in the world. We cannot practice devotion of GOD after being trapped in the world. The world creates obstacles for the devotees. Therefore, the devotee chooses GOD in between the world and GOD. The world becomes secondary to him and GOD becomes paramount to him.

Such a devotee offers his life in the service of GOD. This is the purpose of human life and the devotee successfully fulfills this purpose. Such a devotee is always successful in making his place in the heart of GOD. In the heart of the devotee, only GOD resides and only the devotee resides in the heart of GOD. GOD says that He does not recognize anyone except His devotee. Devotion has such great glory.

Therefore after getting birth as a human being, we should engage our life in the devotional service of GOD, then only our life would be considered successful. All the scriptures, sages, saints and devotees urge and order the creature to do so.

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

Here Shri Arjunji is seeking the grace of GOD and is praying to GOD that GOD should gracefully draw his mind towards Him. Shri Arjunji says that the mind is very volatile and playful by nature, the mind is very obstinate and stubborn. The mind is also very strong and the person loses before the force of the mind. Just as it is impossible to subdue the air, it is also almost impossible to subdue the mind. Saints give a metaphor that like the meditation of a monkey is impossible, because the nature of monkey is very agile, similarly the mind is also very agile and it is almost impossible to stabilize.

But if we detach our mind away from the world and divert it towards GOD, then its agility ends. Wherever the mind goes, it has to be pulled from there and put it back in GOD. The mind should be made to practice that it constantly contemplates GOD. Other than GOD, no other thing should come to mind. When the resolution and alternative thinking of the mind will end, it will become firm in GOD and will become stable and then it will be under our control. There are many saints who kept their mind engaged in the contemplation from the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD to the Divine Eyes of GOD and from the Divine Eyes of GOD to the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD throughout their lifetime.

If the mind will not concentrate on GOD, then it will run towards the world. Then no one will be able to stop it. Therefore it is very necessary for the mind to meditate in the contemplation of GOD and in the form of GOD. If the mind gets entangled in the world then it will lead to our downfall. If the same mind is engaged in GOD, then it will lead to our salvation. Therefore, we should stop our mind from going into the world and the best way for it is to concentrate it in GOD.

The more our mind starts to concentrate on GOD, the more our devotion will be strengthened and our welfare will be established.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should detach our mind from the world and make it contemplate GOD.
