Jai Jai  ShriGokulesh,

........Continued

He is the majestic ruler and master of the world, superior to Akshara, Which is no doubt Being(sat), Conciousnes(Chitt) and Joy (bliss-anand) form of God, yet it's joy is limited. He is designated in the T. U.(taitriya Upanishad) as a Rasa -- Love and is perfect joy. This being the conception of God according to ShriMahaprabhuji, He is to be realised or His joy is to be experienced by the devottee by love that transcends all other kinds of love. The devottee must love God for His own sake in the state of Union with God and listening to or singing praises of God when not engaged in service. -- the sepereation. The Vyasana however is the final state in which the devottee's soul acheives itls object of participation into the joy of God, with Him. It is the state when the devotee cannot bear seperation from God even for a moment. In this stage, the devotee's soul is completely detached from the world and comes very close to God, so that God is drawn to him, by the force of his extreme love for Him. This means that the world must be completely renounced and one's mind must be thinking of God and God alone. For this he should cut off all the ties of family life and social relations. He should live only in the company of the Devotees who have acquired God's Divinity, far from busy throngs of man, in holy places (Gruhasthanam Badhakatvanamanatmatvam Cha Bhasate ||Yada Syad Vyasanam Krishne KRutho Syatdaiv)  where there is a complete immunity from all external distractions. If one fears the possibility of distractions even in secluded places, the idea of residing there should be given up and one should stay in convenient place relying on a God as Protector. He should remember that God will not forsake the devottee's soul, when once its love is accepted by Him. In this work ShriMahaprabhuji vounches for the fact that the soul's devotion expressed through love-developing through Sneha, Aasakti, and Vyasana, will be appreciated by God.

Jai Shri Krishna,

can't recall the details of the vaarta prasang, but it is when Shri Purshottam Joshi met Shri Mahaprabhuji in Gujarat ? He requested Aapshri to tell the which is better Karma Maarg or Gyaan Maarg ? To which AapShri said, the maarg that one is most interested in is best suited for him/her, however He (Aapshri) considers Bhakti Maarg the best.

Grateful if someone can continue with further details/corrections

Best Wishes
jagdish

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh

Further before starting the whole vaarta prasang, 1 question might have arised, and for that questions' answer here is the details.

In Bhaktivardhin i7th sloka (in the mool sloka ) it is given that if "Sang dosh and Anna dosh ki Bhiti hoi to Gruhtyag ko Anukalp". What it want to explain. Because it is very very difficult to avoid the Sang dosh.

         ShriMahaprabhuji had preached different preachings in Bhaktivardhini for the devottes following different courses and of different level.Therefore no preaching should be generalised without paying paying proper attention to its context.

          ShriMahaprabhuji in Bhaktivardhini gives orders that remaining constantly at home, can be destructive even for the devottee who had reached to the stage of Vyasan in ShriGokulesh and who could not do fursther seva of ShriGokulesh.Therefore he should renounce house (because he/she is had already reached the higher stage). But in renounciation obstacles may arise, from keeping bad company (sang dosh) and from the food he / she recieves (asamarpit anna -- anna dosh). In such circumstances one should seek the company of relativesly advanced devottee ( which we call as a bhagwadiya) and stay with or near to him if he allowes. Accepting that bad company and food causes harm to at all levels of devottee, however, this preaching is not directed towards the ordinary devottee. One more thing, being unavoidable does not transform harmful thing to un-harmful. Therefore bad company remains bad only even if it is not avoidable to anyone.

 Jai Jai ShriGokulesh,

   The Blossemed Flower spreads the Smell, similarly The begining of PushtiBhakti is due to the Pushti-Anugrah-Krupa of ShriPRabhu-ShriGurudev. Untill ShriPrabhu does not step forward for the Jeev to take under Surrender, Till then the Jeev is not able to step ahead towards ShriPrabhu. The PrabuKrupa gets born from ShriPrabhu, and goes towards the Daivi Jeev, and that is called as "Pushti" And due to this Krupa only the jeev gets encouraged to step ahead to attain ShriPushtiBhakti, PushtiPRabhu. We find such Krupa examples from our Vaarta Prasangs. In relation to this Bhaktivardhini Granth.

   Once it so happened that ShriMahaprabhuji did Padhramani in Gujarat. And Purushottam Joshi was doing Sandhya during the time of Noon in a Pond. So ShriMahaprabhuji came to that pond for Sandhya Vandan, and Aapshri started doing Sandhya Vandan. Then ShriMahaprabhuji gave Dhristi on Purushottam Joshi, and with Grace-krupa-pushti-anugrah, as he being a Daivi-Jeev.  During Such time of Noon, ShriVallabh, who is Bhaktimaragjmartand" spreaded 1 of the ray of Krupa on Purushottam Joshi, Here the Nimit for Krupa was Sandhya VAndan to bring this Daivi Jeev for the Great Path of Bhakti.

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh,

   ShriMahaprabhuji just gave an eyesight, Did krupa on Purushottam Joshi, from here the process of strentghing Bij-Bhaav starts for Purushottam Joshi. So When Pushti, ShriMahaprabhuji did on Purushottam Joshi, Purushottam Joshi, found This Swaroop sinething different from the other Mahapurushs - Sants. So Even Purushottam Joshi noticed that This Swaroop is catching him by inner rays and he comes near to ShriMahaprabhuji and does vinanti by asking this question ..."First did namaskar to ShriMahaprabhuji, and did vinanti Maharaj, Which path is bigger? KarmaMarga or GyanMarga??Such type of question arised in the minds of Purushottam Joshi is Krupa only. And first did Namaskaar, because any of the jeev can only do naman to ShriPurushottam (Swaroop or Aacharya). , Just as ShriMahaprabhuji does Namami in ShriYamunastakam, Naman. For the questions's answer ShriMahaprabhuji gave the orders "It is the individual, who finds the marg as big or small or best. Which suits and which inspires his inner that marg is Best. The marg, which gives the faith to the devottee is the Shresth. But The best Path in Kali is Bhaktimarg, in which the Jeev gets Liberated and Krutarth. " Purushottam Joshi was in the dilema of Karmamarg, and Gyan marg, but was not notified to Bhaktimarg. So ShriMahaprabhuji here adds more grace to Purushottam Joshi to do Bhakti, and make the Bij-Bhaav more strong for Bhakti. ShriMahaprabhuji Knows that Purushottam Joshi is a Daivi Jeev, So Aapshri doesnot give answer to his question that The Best Marg from karma or Gyan, But shows that Bhaktimarg is the Best.

    So after giving This Orders-Aagyna, ShriMahaprabhuji will now give brief of Why Shresth-Best the Bhaktimarg is?
