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

GOD insists for our welfare that the remembrance of GOD should be done all the time. We divide the time for our actions and work, but there should be no division of time for remembrance of GOD. Remembrance of GOD should be done all the time and should be done continuously. The mind and intellect should continue to remember GOD because in reality we only have relation with GOD. Our only and only relationship with GOD is eternal and we are all part of GOD. Therefore we must dedicate our mind and intellect to GOD.

We were of GOD, we are of GOD and we will remain of GOD, such a continuous relationship with GOD should be awakened. GOD says that those who thus offer their mind and intellect to GOD by upkeep regular relation with GOD, undoubtedly attain GOD. The most important thing that GOD says is that while doing deeds, the remembrance of GOD must be sustained continuously. While doing the work of the world we must always remember GOD. We must have this feeling that while doing the deeds of the world the constant remembrance of GOD should be done along with them.

There should not be any mistake in remembrance of GOD. The one who has undertaken the practice of remembering GOD all the time, his mind and intellect are automatically dedicated to GOD. GOD is very accessible to the one who constantly remembers GOD because whenever he will leave the body, he will leave it with the remembrance of GOD, and by doing so, he will achieve GOD. GOD told Shri Arjunji to keep remembering GOD during the war also. GOD wants to endorse the fact by saying this that when doing any work, we should not forget to remember GOD.

Therefore, the creature should practice to constantly remember GOD in every state, in every process and in every deed of life. Our mind and intellect should always be offered to GOD, then only our welfare is possible and only our end can improve.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We should make a constant habit to regularly remember GOD even while performing all worldly deeds.

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

In this verse, GOD has emphasized the importance of remembering and meditating on GOD. GOD says that the one who meditates on GOD attains GOD without a doubt. If we should remember and meditate on anyone then it should be only GOD. There are many methods of meditation, but only GOD should be chosen for meditation. Therefore only and only the form of GOD should be meditated. Our meditation should be from the Divine Lotus Feet of the GOD to every divine organ of GOD.

The ecstasy in meditating the form of GOD cannot be found in meditating on any other thing. GOD is the pleasure form and the glory and bliss appear form every divine organ of GOD. GOD directs the creatures to do two things in this verse. GOD says to remember GOD and meditate on GOD. Both of these things are very important for our welfare. The one, who learns the constant remembrance of GOD, goes on the path of attaining GOD. The one who succeeds in practicing the meditation of GOD in life, he proceeds further on the path of attaining GOD.

On the strength of practice, a lame man can climb up the mountain. Sages, saints and devotees have been able to put their mind in remembrance of GOD and concentrated in the form of GOD on the basis of practice. In this way they achieved GOD. This is the path that GOD wants to show us that the most accessible means to attain GOD is that our mind always remembers GOD and our mind always meditates on the form of GOD. There is no bigger achievement which can be achieved in human birth than the continuous remembrance and meditation of GOD in life.

Therefore, we should focus our mind on the remembrance of GOD and in the meditation of GOD so that we are able to attain GOD in our human birth.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must constantly remember and meditate on GOD in our life for attaining GOD in our human life.

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

GOD is easily assessable for unique minded people. Whose mind does not go anywhere except GOD, who has no shelter other than GOD and who do not give importance to anyone in life other than GOD, such a creature is called is unique minded. The unique minded creature has only believe in GOD. The unique minded creature has a firm belief that I am only of GOD and only GOD is mine. He firmly believes that no one is mine in this world and I am not of anybody in the world. One who associates such a relationship with GOD is unique minded.

Such a unique minded person continuously contemplates GOD because he has no access anywhere except than GOD. His contemplation of GOD starts from the morning to sleep time and such time also comes in his life, when his contemplation of GOD continues in sleep also. Such a person keeps remembering GOD till death time. GOD says that GOD is accessible to such a creature, and with such a great ease, such a unique minded creature attains GOD.

Remembrance of GOD is also done by worldly creatures, but they do not do it constantly and also do it for selfish accomplishment or for seeking disaster removal from their life. Secondly, the worldly creatures upkeep their relationship with the world. Until we have a relationship with the world, we will not progress. We should live only by becoming only of GOD. We have an eternal and true relationship with GOD because we are part of GOD. The creature, who understands this fact, uniquely concentrates his mind on GOD and contemplates GOD continuously. Only GOD is worthy of worship and of remembrance in this world.

Therefore, the creature should pull his mind out of the world and put it in GOD and should contemplate GOD constantly by avoiding the world. Both of these actions come under devotion, therefore, after taking birth as a human, the creatures must only and only undertake the devotion of GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. For the success of human life, we must pull our mind from the world and make it contemplate GOD so that GOD becomes easily accessible to us in our human life.

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

In this verse, there is a great assurance of GOD for the devotees. GOD has called the world a dwelling of sorrow because there are sorrow and sorrow everywhere. GOD says that the creatures that attain GOD by devotion do not have to come back into this world of sorrow. The direct meaning of it is that the creature is not reborn and that creature attains GOD. Rebirth means to get the body again whether it is of human being or animals, birds or vegetation.

It is the assurance of GOD that the creature that attains GOD is never reborn again. The creature has to come back to this world unwantedly, because of his affection, desire and attachment and to bear the fruits of his deeds. He has to return to any species but he has to return, this is certain. Even if a person goes from high to higher places, he does not achieve complete welfare, because he has to return to the world after enjoying the fruit of his virtues.

But the person who attains GOD by devotion, he reaches GOD. Then he is liberated for the cycle of birth and death forever. His transportation to this world is stopped forever. There is no other way than to attain GOD other than the devotion of GOD by which he can be free from the cycle of 8.4 million species. The process of rebirth and death continues. The only way to avoid this process and to be free from it is to attain GOD by devotion. Anyway, the attainment of GOD is the only goal and purpose of human life.

Therefore the creatures should devote himself to GOD in his human life with intensity and try and make effort to get a place in the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. Only by doing so, that creature can be free from the grief of rebirth forever.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Human life should be used to attain GOD through devotion and be free forever from the cycle of rebirth and death.

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

The whole universe is pervading in GOD. In His supreme form, GOD showed millions and millions of universes in His every pore. We can attain such an ultimate GOD and its only means is exclusive devotion. GOD says in this verse that only by the exclusive devotion GOD can be attained. In exclusive devotion, we accept the predominance of GOD and we perform our every action for the happiness of GOD. I am only and only of GOD, and only and only GOD is mine, this feeling should be in exclusive devotion.

The most accessible and simple means of attaining GOD is exclusive devotion. The exclusive word here has special significance. Devotion is also done for the fulfillment of desires and is also done for attaining freedom from fear. But exclusive devotion is the dearest to GOD. Exclusive devotion means selfless and unshakable devotion. Exclusive devotion means that we cannot remain without the contiguity of GOD even for a moment.

When we look at the character of the devotees, we see the exclusiveness in their devotion. Exclusiveness in devotion is the dearest to GOD. GOD is my everything, the fixing of this feeling in mind is exclusiveness. Just think that GOD, under whom all the creatures and entire universe fall, can be easily accessible with just exclusive devotion. Many people undertake devotion of GOD in life, but only few can are able to undertake exclusive devotion.

Therefore we must awaken the sense of exclusiveness for GOD in life. Exclusive devotion directly leads us to the Divine Lotus Feet of GOD. If in the devotion exclusiveness is there, it is the biggest honor of devotion.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We must not be ordinarily devoted to GOD but must be exclusively devoted to GOD.

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

GOD says that there are various paths for the escape of the soul after death in this world. The creature should not be distracted by listening to those different paths. GOD considers devotion as paramount. GOD says that the path of the dwelling of GOD for the devotee is automatically accessible, sure and straight. Here all three things are important. The path of the dwelling of GOD is accessible to the devotee. By undertaking devotion, the creature reaches GOD with great ease. The dwelling of GOD is sure for the devotee. GOD has already made sure that a devotee will reach GOD surely. For the devotee, the path of the dwelling of GOD is straight.

Secondly, GOD says in this verse that, whatever result is achievable by undertaking the means of sacrifice, charity, tenacity, pilgrimage, fasting etc, the creatures that perform devotion automatically attain them. Due to devotion in the life of a devotee, he attains the results of different ashrams, means and rituals. GOD has given such great glory to the devotion that the devotee gets the results of all other actions and means automatically.

The biggest achievement of human life is to achieve devotion. GOD considers the selfless and loving devotion of the devotees as a debt over Him. The creature should accept the devotional path after coming into human life. Our purpose should only be to attain GOD by devotion. Apart from attaining GOD, there should not be any other purpose in life. The path leading to GOD through devotion is straight and besides the devotion, the path of other means is awry. The path leading to the world, influenced by the illusion, is the most deadly and contradictory.

Therefore, the creature should keep the only goal for attaining GOD in life and he must adopt the devotional path to fulfill it.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. The devotional path is easily accessible, sure and straightforward path to reach GOD.

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

GOD says that the glory of devotion is very big. GOD insists that devotion should be done with complete reverence. Keeping reverence in devotion is absolutely essential. GOD says that those who do not keep reverence in devotion, they cannot attain GOD in any way. It implies that with ease GOD can be attained only by devotion and for this, it is absolutely necessary to have full reverence in the means of devotion.

GOD clearly says that those who do not undertake the devotion of GOD, they can never be free from the cycle of birth and death. The creature, who does not undertake devotion of GOD, cannot attain GOD, and due to the absence of it, that creature has to continue to wander and take birth in various species in the world. The creature can be exempt from the transit of worldly life only when he attains GOD forever by devotion.

In the absence of devotion, the creature continues to wander through the various species in the world, according to his deeds. He never gets the ultimate rest. That creature takes birth in 8.4 million species and attains death. He does not have to undergo this once but has to bear this again and again. In the cycle of 8.4 million species, the creature has to wander an unknown number of times and have to do so continuously. The only means to be free from this is devotion. By devotion the creature attains GOD and in this manner, he becomes free from the cycle of birth and death forever.

Therefore, in this verse, GOD very much emphasizes on devotion and directs the creature to undertake devotion with reverence. GOD clearly says that whoever does not keep reverence in devotion, he cannot attain GOD and cannot be free from the worldly cycle.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. To be free forever from the worldly cycle of birth and death, we must undertake devotion of GOD with great reverence.

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

GOD says that the entire creatures of the world are located in GOD. They cannot go anywhere leaving GOD. The indication of GOD is that as much as the creature considers the world to be his own but he does not belong to the world, and as much as the creature consider himself separated from GOD, but he cannot separate from GOD. There is a continuous close relationship and integrality of the creature solely with GOD. The creature may look different from GOD in terms of the world but there is no separate entity of the creature.

The creature appears only from GOD, remains with GOD and becomes absorbed in GOD. In this way, all the creatures are constantly situated in GOD in a constant form. It implies that even after roaming in all the species, the creature remains an integral part of GOD and is constantly situated within GOD. Here is the indication of GOD that the creature is constantly situated within GOD, then why does that creature not try to attain GOD and why he delay his attempt of attaining GOD.

There can never be a state of separation of creature from GOD. The creature is a part of GOD, but he takes hold of the world. His inclination goes towards the world and he looks for happiness and enjoyment in the world. By doing so, he becomes alienated from GOD while being a part of GOD. His only constant and eternal relationship is with GOD, but he forgets this fact. There is no independent entity of the creature except from GOD, if creature accepts this thing firmly, then the creature will start experiencing that his everything is GOD. This is the real truth.

Our attachment from the world and our separation from GOD should never happen. In whatever species a creature lives but he is a part of GOD and always remains within GOD, therefore he should always be attached to GOD.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We are an integral part of GOD and therefore our attachment should be with GOD and not with the world.

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

In this verse, the great grandeur of GOD is seen, when GOD speaks about the holocaust and then we gets to know GOD as Ultimate Father as the creator of all the creatures. 4 billion and 3.2 million years of human life combine to form one day of Shri Brahmaji and the same years of human life combine to form one night of Shri Brahmaji. When Shri Brahmaji completes His 100 years, then He is absorbed in GOD and time of holocaust comes. Just imagine that one day of 4 billion and 3.2 million years of human life and one night of same 4 billion and 3.2 million years of human life and after such 100 years the holocaust happen.

Even we will not be able to calculate the years required for holocaust as per humans years. No calculating device or no calculating digit will be able to do this calculation because by doubling the 4 billion and 3.2 million years it will become one day and night of Shri Brahmaji and then multiplying it with 30 days and with 12 months we will be able to find one year of Shri Brahmaji and then by multiplying such years by 100 years we will be able to get the time of holocaust. Doing such a calculation is not possible for anyone and through any device.

By this fact, the great grandeur of GOD can be visualized. GOD says that at the time of holocaust everything is absorbed in GOD and GOD recreates everything after the holocaust. GOD does so everytime after holocaust again and again. In this way, GOD is our first parent and therefore we must visualize GOD as our Ultimate Father.

We have no existence without GOD. Other than GOD we do not have any eternal relationship with anyone. We have the eternal and only relationship with such great and grandeur filled GOD, what a great achievement it is in itself.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We are mesmerized when we visualize the great grandeur of ALMIGHTY GOD and our imagination fails to access the great grandeur of ALMIGHTY GOD.

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

The qualities and behavior which are useful in attaining GOD are known as divine qualities. These qualities reside in GOD in supreme form and these qualities had arisen only by the nature of GOD. The creature who takes the shelter of GOD through devotion, these qualities begins to develop in him. Divine qualities help us to walk towards GOD and thus they do our welfare. Divine qualities should be considered as the qualities of GOD and we should accept them as the grace of GOD in life, then only we will not feel the ego for divine qualities residing inside us.

It is a principle that divine qualities will only appear when the aim of that creature will be to attain GOD. These divine qualities are helpful in attaining GOD and with the help of them, the creature proceeds towards GOD. It is the most important in life that we consider GOD as supreme and should continuously be engaged in achieving the goal of attaining GOD in life. In such a situation, the divine qualities develop within the devotees by the grace of GOD and they make them attain salvation by helping them on the path of devotion.

The devotee with divine qualities remains completely submerged in the devotion of GOD. The devotee knows that this quality has developed only due to the grace of GOD and that devotee uses these divine qualities to strengthen his devotion. There is nothing greater achievement than undertaking exclusive devotion of GOD. GOD develops the divine qualities inside a devotee so that they can be helpful in worship and devotion.

Therefore the creatures should remain submerged in the devotion of GOD and as the divine qualities develop inside them while performing devotion, they must continue to strengthen their devotion in life.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. When we undertake devotion, GOD blesses the devotee with divine qualities which aids in strengthening his devotion.

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

Here GOD tells about the routine of devotees equipped with divine qualities. Devotees equipped with divine qualities are always busy with different types of works related to devotion. Performing devotion is very easy for devotees equipped with divine qualities and they happily do it. Devotees equipped with divine qualities have only one aim to attain GOD and they get firmly engaged in fulfilling this aim. Devotee equipped with divine qualities identifies his eternal and continuous relationship with GOD and forever becomes available for GOD.

The aim of attaining GOD for devotees equipped with divine qualities is very firm. They are never distracted from their aim. While walking on the path of attaining GOD these devotees sometimes sing the hymns, sometimes chant the name of GOD, sometimes read the holy scriptures, sometimes perform the daily practice for GOD and sometimes listen to the pastime narration of GOD. In this manner, they are continuously engaged in the exclusive devotion of GOD. They do all of their activities for the happiness of GOD.

It is a principle that whatever a devotee does, he does it for GOD, therefore, his every activity is devotion. Devotee attaches his only relationship with GOD and because of this, he performs all his activity by keeping GOD in the center. The worldly activity of devotee is also for GOD and other social activities are also for GOD. Devotee considers that only living life is not a life. Devotee considers that devoting life for GOD and living life for GOD is the factual life.

When GOD see the feeling of love for Himself in the heart of devotee then He becomes very happy. GOD only wants love and devotion from the creature and other than this He does not want anything else.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. Instead of living a worldly life we must devote our life to GOD and live a life filled with love and devotion for GOD.

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

GOD says that the creator of the universe and the Father of the universe is GOD. GOD says that He is the Father and Mother of the world. Except for GOD, there is no power of any other thing or person. We should not a fraction of doubt that there is the existence of any other power in the world except GOD, because there is nothing other than GOD. In His supreme form, GOD has shown that everything is GOD and only GOD. Anything that we come to see, hear, understand, and believe is only and only GOD.

Here GOD has clearly stated to Shri Arjunji that the Father of the world, the Mother of the world, the food giver to the world, and the ultimate great Father of the world is only GOD. Saints have therefore seen the whole world as full of GOD. They had not accepted the existence of anyone other than GOD in the world. They cannot imagine even in their imagination that there is the existence of anyone other than GOD in the world. All the scriptures, sages, saints and devotees have unanimously experienced and acknowledged that everything is GOD.

When our mind accepts the fact that no one else has any existence other than GOD in the universe and GOD is our everything, then there develops a divine love and attachment for GOD in our heart. The name of this is devotion. For a devotee, GOD is his everything. The devotee keeps all his relation with only GOD. GOD also keeps all His relationship with such devotees.

Those who have accepted the complete shelter with love and devotion for GOD, their complete responsibility is taken by GOD. Therefore, we should remain submerged in the devotion of GOD and should not keep any other interests, only then we will be counted as real devotees.

GIST FOR ALL RELIGION
  1. We only have an ultimate relationship with ALMIGHTY GOD as He is our creator and our eternal Father and Mother.
