I
In Gokul, the severe pain of separation from God Krushna is felt by His parents Yashodaji and Nandji, the others residing in Gokul; as well as the indescribable distress felt and experienced by the Gopijanas of Vraj ( (which led all of them to forget the world and be submerged in the thoughts of God Krushna) . Let me too, atleast sometime know and experience that.

II
The happiness and the joy felt by all those dwelling in Vraj, and the ecstasy experienced by the Gopijanas during the time that God Krushna was with them…I expectantly ponder, will He give ms too such similar happiness and joy?

III
The great feast and celebration that occurred in Gokul and Vrundavan, on the arrival of the knowledgeable devotee and friend of God Krushna, Uddhavji, let that happen sometime, somewhere in my mind too. (Implying the pleasure invoked by the constant remembrance of God Krushna after he departed from Gokul, and the feeling therein when discussed with a close associate of God, and the total unification it caused with the memory of God leading to increased devotion is expected therein) .

IV
By the grace of the great masters of knowledge, by the pious devotees of the God of Vraj, upto the time when God Himself is compassionate as they are, or is moved to compassion by His love for them, the singing of the glories of God with such devotees is definitely for the purpose of experiencing joy and happiness.

V
By the grace of these great devotees and those of Vraj the songs and about the glory of God is ever-filled with emanating joy, similarly that done by other people for menial, immaterial objects or articles is not that joy-giving. It is compared to food which is dry, harsh and stale and is not enjoyed by one who likes wet, soft and fresh food – Mahaprasad of God.

VI
By the grace of these devout souls, that joy which is enthusiastically felt by all in singing the praises and the Leela of God, that is not felt by the knowledgeable devotees of God like Shri Shukdevji, who gives sermons on the Shreemad Bhaagwat and experiences the non-duality in himself in its entirety; then how is it possible to experience that joy by those bereft of both knowledge and devotion?

VII
By seeing His own devotees, struggling and saddened for His Own attainment, when the great God Krushna is moved by compassion, then He manifests Himself within and without the heart of his devotees with His eternally joyous form

VIII
The grace and the happiness imparted by God Krushna, the source of Joy and the Ultimate Enjoyer of all that exists, is very rare. God staying in the hearts of His devotees, gets compassionate after listening to His own attributes as sung by His devotees, and gives them both within and without His attainment and experience of joy.

IX
Hence, it is necessary always to be near to those devotees and join them in praising God and His attributes, who have renounced everything and are constant in their union with God, their lovingly sung praises of His Leela and their intransigent devotion to God. Therein, by the divine wish of God, effortlessly, one experiences the Akshar-brahma or emancipation and knows total non-dualism, in matter, consciousness and the joyful spirit.

X
I, Mahaprabhuji, who have attained that state of constant union with God, by the proper control over the senses, having achieved this pinnacle of oneness on the path of devotion, I shall now describe this state for those who are on this path, have momentary experience of the same state yet have some infatuations and bonds remaining with the society and its world and ways of removing the same.

XI
Here, all those individuals who have been forsaken by God Hari remain constantly merged in that ocean of society and its world. Those who have been ordained and who work for that state of union with God, only they attain bliss and joy in their utmost feeling for God and by singing His praises.

XII
Those, who always remain in deep love with the Divine attributes and God Krushna, the known enemy of the demon Moor (implying all the rigidity of a stubborn conscience filled with false beliefs) , do not suffer from the impermanent feelings of intense separation from God, nor does the society with all its vices and infatuations bind them. They dwell in the bliss like God Himself.

XIII
It is only then, as mentioned above, if the devotee is in as much bliss as God Himself, infinite compassion of God is personified; otherwise how else can a devotee progress continuously and not waver from the path of devotion; there are no hindrances in this path, nor the fear of falling down from that elevated state of union with God, nor from the Intensity of feeling that a devotee has and who experiences momentary experiences of divinity within himself.

XIV –XVI
For the benefit and purity of those senses of action and perception, which have been defied by the continuous interactions with the vice-filled society and its world, definitely one must offer and surrender all that one has or comes in contact with the omnipresent God of all that exists – God Krushna. By these acts, and the Grace of the divine attributes, one gets effortless renunciation for all objects of the senses. By singing God’s praises and glory, by the touch of God within oneself, by being related or near to God by His Leela descriptions and praise, no form of sorrow touches the devotee. By this perfect blending of the consciousness in admiration of God which is better than that achieved with difficulty and rarely by those on the path of knowledge, all those devotees who are without malice, greed, envy or jealousy must definitely and always sing the praises of God Krushna and His attributes all way.

XVII – XIX
It is always necessary to constantly contemplate and mediate that form idol of God which one admires and sings the glory of, for the purpose of experiencing non-duality with God with a all organs of perception and action, by seeing, touching the form, idol etc., implying the usage of those senses with God ; all acts involved of the body like hand and feet movement etc., again associating them with God is quite clear in this path of devotion. Similarly listening attentively and singing the glories of God is quite clear. Acts of procreation are performed with the intention of getting a devout son attached to God or whom God Himself loves; by the acts of excrement one must cultivate feelings of secondary importance towards the body. Similarly if the exact purpose of any sense organ is not perfectly clear, then it is decided that one has to be very careful and diligent in its usage, seeing that it is utilized in the service of God Himself.

XX
These means of God attainment, experience and realization as mentioned are penultimate. There is no Mantra – mystical incantation greater than this. There are no means on the path of knowledge or rites of invoking God, nor any place of pilgrimage that is more pious, holy or elevating than the means mentioned above.
