Fruits of labour

by the doc

Age Group: Adult



If the Seva of God Krushna is done according to what has been mentioned in previous scriptures related to the Pushti Marg path of devotion, if performed accordingly, and reached its attainment stage, the following end-results are achieved and experienced, and are being described by me. Due to these means, the generous gift of non-dual experience with the body of the Akshar-brahma, by God Krushna, and the result of the Ultimate desire of the devotee of enjoying all the Divine Pleasures of God with Him is accomplished. If this does not occur, depending on one’s level of deservance and God, merging with God Himself, or that body gifted to the devotee which can sustain and maintain the Seva-service of God. For these end-results, the adverse effects of time etc do not hold any stand.

II
Restlessness, the mind being filled with fear and being wavering or the prohibition of the acts of Seva by internal or external causes, or the experience and enjoyment of both joy and sorrow, are the three main obstacles which can arise in the Ultimate state while doing the Seva.

III
In this manner, due to God’s wish there arise the above-mentioned threefold hindrances. If these are never supposed to occur or ordained by God, then definitely, in all circumstances the mind remains centred on God. Continuing on the manner in which the Seva is done, there is a difference in what the devotee experiences and is dependent on the wish of God who ordains what an individual will experience and hence performs the Seva accordingly and enjoys its end-results.

Lack of decision about God and His ever-present essence in all that exists, and lack of determination are known to be the causes of all the three-fold hindrances that a devotee may face. It is thus necessary to give up the above mentioned set-backs.

IV
In enjoyment of pleasures too, that offered by society and that gifted by God. The precious ones should be renounced, while the latter is without any obstacles. This generous enjoyment of pleasures with God always enters alongwith God realization while the other is always considered to be prohibited.

V
Those pleasures which are filled with difficulties are to be renounced as they are slightly destructive. Those offered by the society and those hindrances which arise thereof are to be renounced firmly, using intelligence, discrimination and pure intent. All the obstacles arising due to the wish of God to give His devotee an experience of attachments of the world and society, the devotee deciding thus must remain free from worry.

V ½
In the restlessness associated with God, one must not cease to worry about the perfection of means required to do the Seva or the awaiting eagerness of when God will be attained, because God is not the one who does not give Himself generously. In those enjoyments offered by the world or the attachments, bondage and infatuations, the house becomes the main hindering factor and must be renounced.

VI
These three-fold end-attainments in God realization and the three-fold obstacles are always and definitely present. One should always be aware of the same and give it sincere thought. Rest all is just a delusion arising in the mind.

VI ½
Even those ultimately united or merged with God must think about the same as mentioned previously by which one can ponder on the aspect of the Grace of God, which is constant, and He does not delay it nor does He give any other causes of delaying His grace to His devotees.

VII
It is my, Vallabhacharyaji’s understanding that even for overcoming the three pre-dominant attributes of Satva, Rajas and Tamas arising in all individuals, to know them as the obstacles generated by Nature and God in this path of Pushti Marg devotion to attain God.

VII ½
If any other lowly creation like using different means according to different scriptures arises here, or if is generated (like the thought of Maya or illusionary strength of God governs the three attributes of Satva-Rajas-Tamas in a devotee, then it is definitely another delusion in the mind. In all obstacles arising and being hindersome God is the only refuge for without God’s divine wish nobody is able to ever do anything in this creation.
