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

GOD here commands Shri Arjunji to become a Yogi. From the KarmaYogi, GyanYogi, DhyanYogi and BhaktiYogi, GOD commands his beloved Shri Arjunji to become a BhaktiYogi and thereby expresses the special glory of devotion for this purpose. GOD says that the Yogis who perform His devotion are superior to all types of Yogi and are most dear to GOD. The BhaktiYogi who relates to GOD through devotion is the best. The person who gets detached from the world and forms a union with GOD is actually a devotee.

The devotee of GOD abandons all the attachment of the world for all time and becomes of GOD thereby he performs deeds only for the happiness of GOD. The mind of devotee never leaves GOD and GOD also never abandons His devotee. GOD by telling BhaktiYogi as the best has proved that all the other ways have some deficiency. A devotee leaves by becoming small and he does not have any ego. For this reason, he is very dear to GOD and GOD has considered such devotee as the best.

GOD also has the hunger of devotion and love. Devotees fulfill this hunger of GOD. Therefore GOD has considered His devotees as the best. The devotee is only and only dependent on GOD and remains happy only in the happiness of GOD. The mind of the devotee and the wisdom of the devotee are always engaged in GOD. Due to intense intimacy with GOD the devotee resides in the heart of GOD.

In all those Yogis, such as KarmaYogi, Gyanyogi, DhyanYogi, HatYogi, LaiYogi, RajYogi etc, GOD has considered His devotee as the best. In SriMad Bhagwat GeetaMaa GOD has described that devotee is the best at several places. Devotion is paramount in all means of attaining GOD. All other means have to take the support of devotion in the end.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD places His devotee on the highest platform and reinstates that devotion is the paramount means among all means to attain Him.

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

Achieving GOD is not difficult or rare in life, but it is not done because there are very few creatures who try to do this with a real passion and effort. Generally, humans are engaged in animal-like works such as food, sleep, fear and copulation, and they complete their life in these activities. Neither do they have the desire for GOD, neither do they have passion nor do they try in that direction. GOD waits for such a creature who forgets the world and turns towards GOD.

We are part of GOD and GOD is whole. It is an eternal truth and is also rendered clearly in all the Scriptures. The duty of the part is that it should never go far away from its whole. But when the creature is born in the world, before that, in the womb of his mother, he prays to GOD to rescue him from the pain of the womb. At the same time, the creature assures GOD that he will never forget GOD upon coming into the world. But coming into the world he gets influenced by illusion and he gets involved in this world and forgets GOD.

After wandering in eighty-four lac species GOD has gracefully given us the human birth and has given us the chance to achieve Him forever and to be free from the cycle of rebirth forever. But the creature does not utilize this opportunity and continues to crave in the world. In earning money, reputation, prestige, in raising a family, in collecting and enjoying, he puts his whole life at stake and leads a life in vain. Due to lust, he has an attraction in feminine, due to the greedy he has an attraction towards wealth, due to fascination he has an attracted towards the family. But rising above all of these, we should only be attracted to GOD by devotion, then only our welfare is possible.

Therefore, the creatures should only try for union with GOD after getting the privilege of human life. There cannot be a bigger goal than achieving GOD in human life. Therefore, human efforts should always be in this direction only.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD has mercifully given us human life for uniting with Him and we should not waste our human life merely in worldly endeavors.

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

GOD is omnipresent. The ultimate reason for everyone is GOD. GOD is in all forms. There is no other authority except GOD. The world gets existence from GOD, resides in GOD and becomes absorbed in GOD. There is nothing in the world except GOD, so after knowing GOD nothing else remains in this world to be known. Just as the pearls are threaded with the thread, similarly everything is dependent on GOD. Only GOD is the ultimate truth and the supreme man. There is no other thing other than GOD in the world. There is nothing other than GOD inside and outside of the world.

GOD has become multiple from one, so the sages and saints have seen the world as Godly. GOD is absorbed in all living and non-living things. There is no such thing, no such place in the world where GOD does not reside. When GOD showed His supreme form to Shri Arjunji then in every pore of GOD millions and millions of universes were visible. In the same way, GOD was visible in all the universes. There is no power other than GOD in the universe. The whole universe is Godly.

Due to being so extensive, GOD is available everywhere and every time. The influence of GOD and the grandeur of GOD never comes to an end. When there is no end to it, then knowing it is not possible from human intelligence. The experience of sages, saints and devotees of describing GOD does not enter our intelligence, it does not come in our mind as much it comes in intelligence and it does not come in words as much it comes in mind. Therefore, it should be considered that whatever is written or stated about GOD is very negligible.

Considering the universal omnipresence of GOD and the universal power of GOD, the whole universe should be seen as Godly. Visualizing GOD in every particle and everywhere is a very high state of devotion.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. There is nothing in the universe apart from GOD and therefore we must be able to visualize GOD in the whole world.

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

GOD explains His majesty in some of the verses here. GOD says that the juice in water is GOD. The light in Shri Suryadevji and Shri Chandradevji is GOD. The manhood which is there in humans is GOD. The splendor which is there in Shri Agnidevji is GOD. After that, the statement that GOD makes is very dear to me because this truth is very heart touching. GOD says that the life-giving power in all creatures is GOD. The living force, by which all creatures are alive, is GOD.

There is no existence of a creature without life force. If the life force gets out of the body, then that creature is no longer called a creature because he becomes a dead body. GOD says that in all the creatures GOD is situated in the form of life force. We are able to live and our life is there only because GOD is stationed as a life force within us. Thus it is clear that without GOD we have no existence. As long as the GOD is within us we are there. Our existence is due to the presence of GOD within us.

When our existence is due to GOD, then our first relationship is with GOD. We should see how much priority we give to our relationship with GOD. The GOD, because of whom our existence is there, should be given top most priority in life. GOD has given us the greatest gift in the form of life force. By being stationed within us as life force GOD has done us the greatest favor. But the creature forgets such a great favor of GOD and connects himself with the mortal world. Whereas the creature should establish his relationship with the eternal GOD due to whom his existence is there.

When we learn to see GOD within us as our life force, then we will understand the favors of GOD from which we can never escape the indebtedness. When this happens then the devotion for GOD will awaken within us which is most beloved to GOD and is the definite means of our well-being.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Our existence in the world is only due to GOD, therefore our top most priority in life should only be GOD.

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

Illusion deludes the creature and misleads him to turn away from GOD. The creatures have got this human birth for attaining GOD, but because of the influence of illusion, they become entangled in the world. As soon as there is a connection with illusion, the desire for enjoyment and collection is awakened inside the creatures. But those who take the shelter of GOD tides over illusion. Illusion then does not again have any influence on them. Illusion disappears for them.

Illusion turns us away from GOD and leads us to the world, while devotion turns us away from the world and leads us towards GOD. Devotion leads us to the shelter of GOD. There is no alternative except this to save us from the effects of illusion. The creature who takes the shelter of GOD by not giving importance to illusion is able to make his human life successful. When we go into the shelter of GOD, then GOD blesses us and the effect of illusion on us ends up due to the grace of GOD.

Illusion has affected everyone in this world. Those who are blessed by GOD and those who are saved by GOD, only escape the influence of illusion. Therefore, the creatures should accept the shelter of GOD by turning away from the world. This should not be delayed. The one who takes the shelter of GOD establishes his relationship with GOD and then has no relation to illusion. That is why we should leave the world and be dependent on GOD. It is impossible for us to transcend illusion by our ability. Only due to the devotion of GOD and due to surrender before GOD can we overcome illusion. Only GOD can rescue the creature from the clutches of illusion.

The creature cannot overcome the illusion with his power. Those who undertake the devotion of GOD and accept the shelter of GOD, only they can overcome this illusion. Therefore the creatures should undertake the devotion of GOD in their life and surrender to GOD in life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Illusion leads us away from GOD and leads us to the world whereas devotion leads us away from the world and leads us to GOD.

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

GOD has described four types of devotees who undertake devotion. First is Atharthi devotee, who have the desire for money, wealth, happiness and pleasure and he undertakes the devotion of GOD for achieving this. Second is Aart devotee, who is the person in distress and seeks GOD when his life is in danger. Third is Jigyasu devotee, who undertakes the devotion of GOD to know the ultimate truth. Forth is Premi devotee, those who have come to know GOD and worship GOD only for the shake of nurturing their love for GOD.

The first three categories of devotees namely Atharthi, Aart and Jigyasu all undertake the devotion of GOD because of various circumstances. This is not pure devotion because they want to fulfill certain ambitions in lieu of devotion. Pure devotion is always selfless and there is no desire for any benefit from GOD. This is the fourth type of devotion which is called Premi devotion. In Premi devotees the name of Gopis is famous. Saint of Deities GOD Shri Naradji has considered the Gopis as the ideal of Premi devotees.

Gopis became ready to give the dust of their feet due to their love for GOD, to put them in the forehead of GOD, to eliminate the pain of GOD. They were threatened that they might have to go to hell for this, but they did not care for it and accepted this to please their loving GOD. That is why GOD says that His Premi devotees are most superior because GOD is very dear to them and therefore they are also very dear to GOD.

Therefore, the creatures should undertake devotion to GOD selflessly and without any desire for any material gain. This is called pure devotion. Selfless devotees are very dear to GOD. GOD pleasingly gives the donation of Himself to such selfless devotees.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. The selfless devotion of GOD without any desire for fulfillment of any wish is the pure devotion which GOD loves most.

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

GOD has stated four types of devotees. Out of those Premi devotees are the dearest to GOD. The Premi devotee does not want anything from GOD in exchange for their devotion. They have the natural affection for GOD, so they undertakes the devotion of GOD. Their purpose is to love GOD and to serve GOD. GOD loves such devotees very much and never gets detached from them. Such devotees always dwell in the heart of GOD and GOD always dwells in the hearts of such devotees.

That devotee who does not want anything other than GOD, GOD never forgets such lover devotee. GOD has the closest relationship with such Premi devotees. Scripture says that those who get interested only in GOD, such Premi devotees are truly fortunate and can only be called human. Being attuned to GOD means that in the heart of devotee such feeling is awakened that I am only of GOD and the only GOD is mine. The devotee who keeps such feeling only loves GOD and GOD also only places such devotees in His heart.

There is no bigger devotee than the Premi devotee because their devotion is selfless. Selfish devotion is like a business because we undertake the devotion for the fulfillment of any wish and we encashed our devotion by fulfilling that wish. But those who perform selfless devotion and absolutely love GOD without any selfishness, GOD devotes Himself to him. The Premi devotee who performs selfless devotion ultimately attains GOD in the end. Having love and selflessness in devotion is the pride of devotion.

Therefore, the creatures should rise above their worldly selfishness and love GOD and undertake the selfless devotion of GOD. The creature doing so is very dear to GOD and such creature finds the place in the heart of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must never encash our devotion by fulfilling worldly desires through it.
  2. Our devotion for GOD should be pure and selfless without any expectation in return.
  3. We should love GOD for the sake of loving GOD since HE is our ultimate Father.

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

GOD has considered human birth as the last opportunity to attain GOD in the entire births. If the creature achieves GOD by undertaking exclusive and selfless devotion of GOD in his human life, then it is his last birth, because then he is forever free from the cycle of birth and death. By giving human birth, GOD has given all the creatures the absolute authority to attain GOD. It is narrated in the scriptures that human birth is only to attain GOD and is not for enjoying the pleasures of the subjects or for collection even not for earning the virtue to attain heaven.

Devotion destroys our accumulated sins and desires and does our welfare by helping us in attaining GOD. Devotion makes us chant and remember GOD and due to it in the last stage by doing so we attain GOD. The human body is the most suitable body for undertaking welfare because it is only by the human body that devotion of GOD can be performed. If in a human life we become a devotee and surrender to GOD, then it should be considered that the great grace of GOD has been showered upon us.

GOD gracefully gave us this human body, it will only be meaningful when we attain GOD through it. So as soon as possible before the arrival of our death, we should ensure our welfare and try to attain GOD. GOD says that the creature with a pure heart and with selfless effort to attain GOD is very rare in this world. GOD is like the ocean and the creature is like the wave of the ocean. The wave ultimately has to meet the ocean. Similarly, the creature has to finally attain GOD. But GOD says that it is very rare that a creature is able to do so in the human birth.

Those creatures who do not achieve GOD in human birth, then they have to again wander in 8.4 million species. Therefore the creature must try to attain GOD by undertaking devotion and by surrender to GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Human birth is the last birth after 8.4 million births and is only meant to attain GOD but we waste it in undertaking worldly pursuits.

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

GOD says that the creatures who have been in the past or those who are in the present age or those who are going to take birth in the future, GOD know them all. This is because whatever has happened in the past, whatever is happening in present and whatever will happen in future is all governed by the law of GOD. Wherever the creature lives, he can never disappear from the view of GOD. GOD knows all and everything, but there is no one who knows GOD.

We cannot know GOD through our intelligence. The one to whom GOD wants that he should know GOD knows GOD by the grace of GOD. GOD says that devotion is the only means by which we can know GOD. Apart from the devotee, GOD has not given the authority to anyone to know GOD. Yogi and the wise person also try to know GOD, but only the devotee succeeds in doing so. GOD clearly says that no one can know GOD except the devotee.

Devotion unites the devotee with GOD. GOD does not consider any difference between Himself and His devotees. GOD reveals His secret only in front of a devotee. As a father who has four sons, but the son who is most affectionate to the father, the father reveals his whole secret to that son only. Similarly, GOD reveals His secret to His beloved son who is a devotee. Only after becoming a devotee we can know GOD, we can truly recognize GOD.

Therefore, devotion should be given the highest place in life because devotion reveals the hidden GOD in front of us. Due to devotion, the devotee becomes dear to GOD and GOD becomes dear to the devotee.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. GOD reveals Himself only to His devotee and therefore only by devotion we must seek GOD.

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

Not all people are interested in the worship of GOD. The creature gets stuck and wanders in the world and forgets the main purpose of his life. Human birth can be the last birth of a creature if he attains GOD in this life through devotion. But the creature does not do so, even he does not attempt to do so from his heart. He likes the world, family, wealth, and he is engaged in their collection and enjoyment.

Being away from GOD is a complete sin and being near to GOD is the greatest virtue and benefit. All the time, we should remember that we are not the worldly people, we are seekers and attaining GOD is the sole goal of our life. It is the principle that if by any way our mind gets attracted to GOD, then we attain salvation. It is also the principle that those who become distracted from the world and are attracted towards GOD can only worship GOD.

Our accumulated sin does not allow us to worship GOD. Sins know that they will decay as soon as we start to worship. Therefore our sins hinder us from undertaking worship. But once if we start to worship GOD with firmness, then even if there are mountains of our accumulated sins, it is destroyed by the influence of worship. In the worship of GOD, there is the ability to burn innumerable times much more sins than our capacity to accumulate sins in several births. By worshiping GOD, our sins are destroyed, and when our sins are destroyed our mind starts to concentrate on worship.

Therefore, the creatures should remove their attraction from the world and concentrate on GOD and start worship of GOD in life. The one who undertakes the worship of GOD, GOD calls that creature as Punya karma (virtuous person) because his sins are already destroyed.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Instead of the world, if we are attached to GOD and we derive pleasure in the worship of GOD then it is a sign that our sins have been destroyed.

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

Those who want to get rid of the cycle of birth and death should dedicate their human life in undertaking devotion of GOD. Human life is the gate of salvation and we can become free through devotion in this life. But if we waste this human birth in enjoyment and collection, then we will have to wander in 8.4 million species. Only when the ultimate grace of GOD is bestowed on the creature, then the creature gets the birth as a human being. Therefore, a creature should utilize the human birth and should not waste his life in animate deeds such as food, sleep and copulation.

Repeated birth and repeated cycle of death have got stuck with us for so long. We are born in different species and then we attain death. Creature wants freedom from this cycle of birth and death and wants rest in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. It is possible only through the effort undertaken in human life. This effort is known as devotion. The creature that uses his human birth to undertake the devotion of GOD gets permanently free from the cycle of birth and death and is able to attain GOD.

Therefore GOD says that those creature who are attuned to liberation from this cycle of birth and death are only wise. Such creature undertakes the devotion of GOD and surrenders to GOD. There is no achievement greater than liberation from the cycle of birth and death and it is possible only by the efforts made in human life. Surrendering to GOD through the devotion of GOD should be the only purpose of our human life. The creature has got the human birth to do the same.

Therefore, keeping in mind the purpose of our human life, we must undertake the devotion of GOD and must surrender to GOD so that we can be free from the cycle of birth and death forever.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must undertake the devotion of GOD and surrender to GOD in human life so that we are liberated forever from the vicious cycle of birth and death.

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

In the above verse, we can witness the clear visions of the mercy and kindness of GOD. GOD has made the path of His attainment so simple that in the end, the soul that remembers GOD attains GOD. But this does not mean that GOD should not be remembered during the lifetime and time should not be devoted to GOD. The one who does not practice remembrance of GOD during his lifetime, after all the efforts in the end, he is unable to remember GOD. The accumulated sin of that creature does not allow the creature to remember GOD in the end.

But the creature who has the constant practice of remembrance of GOD, in his end time, without any interruption, he remembers GOD and attains GOD. Practice is the name of that which we use to do throughout our life. The practice of the entire life becomes useful in our end time. Therefore we must constantly practice the remembrance of GOD from the very beginning and should continue to increase this practice gradually.

Practicing the remembrance of GOD regularly in life is also important because we do not even know when our end will come. Creature plans for years and years together, but it has been observed that the next moment his life ends. Therefore, if he is not careful and does not make the rule of remembrance of GOD and abides by it, then it may be possible that the next moment is his end time, and he fails to remember GOD in his end time. That is why the creature should continue practicing the remembrance of GOD in his lifetime. The end can come at any time. There is no such year, month, day, hour, minute and moment in which the end cannot come. Therefore, the human being should constantly remember GOD, so that whenever he leaves the body, he will leave it with the remembrance of GOD and will thus attain GOD.

GOD is so very merciful that He has shown a very simple way of achieving Him. But this can only happen when there is a life-long practice behind it. Therefore, the remembrance of GOD should continue throughout the life, so that there is no possibility of any mistake in the end.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must constantly keep remembering GOD so that it becomes a routine practice and therefore we are able to remember GOD at death time which will free us from the worldly cycle forever and will enable us to permanently attain GOD.
