Prasang – 19

Greed is the Root of Sin (Lobh E Paap-nu Mool Che):

Shri Gokulnathji sat on the Sajiya after having had Bhojan; at that time he said that greed is embodiment of great sin (Lobh maha-paap roop che). At that time, Krishnadas bhai said that, Raj, that is understandable (Yatharth che). Greed is that bad (lobh evo nathoro che)… and on top he quoted the sholk from Shree-Geeta, Shri Krishna said to Arjun that… In the way that all the goodness is killed off out of greed; in this way I have killed all these out of greed.

Vivechan - Lobh is the lowest kind of bad quality (dur-gun). If the Greedy person has any good qualities, these are covered up (hidden). A greedy person cannot contain vivek (intellect) at all. The Kauravs became greedy for kingdom, so Shri Krishna remained on top of them and got them killed off. On top of that, the devotee, Karna, Satiya Drona, Ashawatthama and Bhishma, who took the side of those kauravs who were greedy, also got killed, and they died even when they had love towards Shri Krishna. Therefore, greed causes great obstruction in the path of Bhakti… he explained this.

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh,

Very Yatarth Hashyamrut of Dadaji ShriGokuleshprabhucharan. That jeev should not be greedy. For this we get in 1 vaarta prasang of a dokari, who was alone, but used to serve her shrithakurji with the kaani of shrimahaprabhuji. One day she earned more compared to regular earnings, so she made more samagris for even the next day and that particlar day, she became nischint (tension free). So shrithakurji didn't liked it and then aapshri broke the handi of that samagri, in which the samagri was kept.

So this dokari became somewhat greedy that today i got more, so shrithakurji don't wanted that dokery to be greedy and nischint. So aapshri did this leela.

This is not the exact related vaarta prasang, but i just get the blim of it.

Jai Shri Krishna,

Gopal bhai thank you for bringing in the prasang of the dokari. It is very welcomed and most appreciated. Please continue highlighting these and any other prasangs or vachnamruts.

Pushtidasji: Please, no need for thank yous, here as it is a pleasure that we all enjoy.

It is good to know that Yourself and everyone is enjoying them. I can say that I have equally had the pleasure of following many of your postings and those posted by all other vaishnavs.

- Thank you kindly for your good wishes ('blessings') in the other thread. They are very much appreciated.

Afterall, we are only able to do any of this in our limited capacity by such blessings, and His wish and grace. So any of these thank yous or credits should really go to Him.

Prasang – 20

Think every second, what is Prabhu doing (Kshane Kshane Vicharvu ke Prabhu Shu kare che?):

One time Shri Gusaiji was seated (Shri Gusainji birajya hata), all of us kids were also sitting nearby, at that time Shri Gusaiji dada looked at us and said (asked), what is Shri Thakorji doing at this time ? No one answered, therefore I said to dadaji, you please say something (kaik to kaho). Then Aap said, what shall we say? (Shu kahiye?). No one said anything, then again, Shri Gusainji said…those who are involved indepth with this would know…. those who are not involved what would they know of such things?

Vivechan – Those who are in prabhu (prabhuma petha hoy), only they would know, at which time prabhu is doing what leela. Without Bhaav or Aarti, it is not possible to know such things. In order to obtain (be entitled to) pushti-ras, only bhaav is of more importance (pushti-ras melav-va mate Bhaav-aj pradhan che). Those who are specially entitled to it, they are able to experience the Bhagvad-leelas at every Kshan (fraction of seconds?)

Prasang – 21

Prabhu is only obtained out of Prabhu's Krupa and not because of Jeev's Saadhan (Prabhuni Krupae Prabhu Male – Jeev-na Saadhane Nahi):

One time Pancholi said (asked) as follows… Raj, daily, I consume Dodh-Pa-Sher Ghee, and if I desire (if I make the effort) – (Fed bandhine hindoo to baar gaau kaapi naakhu), then I can travel across twelve villages (like cross country trek); However, Raj, when Aap (you) visit Shriji-Dvaar, (aap jyare Shriji Dvaar padhaaro tyare), at that time, it is not possible for me to go along with you, and staying here without Raj, there is no happiness also (I am unable to find happiness). Even when flapping here and there desperately, it is not possible to come (rahya rahya tarfadiya kariye chiye to pan avatu nathi).
At that time Aap said…

that, those who we go to see, if they desire then they will see us.. if Shreeji himself decides that this person should come and see me, then we are able to visit, we cannot go with our own strength.

(ke jene nirakhva jaiye, tena manma ave to darshan ape, shriji pote dhare ke E mane avine dekhe to avaya, potana bale na avaya.)

Vivechan: We cannot do prabhu's darshan with our own strength. Only if prabhu bestows his grace then we can do darshan. If prabhu thinks (about a jeev) then that jeev's work is done (life becomes fulfilled).
There is no meaning in the jeev's making an effort (saaddhan) and Prabhu's darshan. Therefore, remaining ananyashray, keeping faith, being nisaadhan (without relying on unnecessary/material effort) and being humble will make one eligible to receive Bhagvat krupa (Grace). He only marries those on whom He bestows His krupa and gives/grants literal benediction/boon of anand/bliss.

(apna bal thi prabhuna darshan thata nathi, prabhu krupa kare toj darshan de, Prabhu vichare to jeevnu kaam thay. jeevna
saaddhan-nu prabhuna darshan ma kaayaj gaju nathi, maate ananyaashray rahi vishvash rakhi nihsadhan ane deen baniye to bhagvat-krupa thay. Prabhu jena-upar krupa kare tenej pote vare che, ne saakshaat anand-nu daan kare che.)

Prasang - 22

Everything of Vraj is associated with the Transcendental Divine Play (Vraj-ni Badhi chijo leelatmak che):

One day when the appropriate subject arose, He said that even the crows this place (Vraj) are granted/have good liberation (ahina kaagdao-ni pan sadgati che), that kind of liberation/endiing which is not available even to Brahma, etc. at any other place.

Vivechan - Everything in Vraj is transcendental. According to their capability/eligibility they get an appropriate birth in Vraj-Bhoomi (jevi jeni yogyata tevi yoni tene Vraj-bhoomi-ma male). However, they are all related to God (pan te sarve Bhagvad sambandhi che). Therefore their ending/type of liberation is topmost (mate te sarvani gati uttam che). The crow is known as maker of bad noise (kagdo e Adham vaani nu prani che), even then as per its relationship goes with Vraj, its liberation is of high level (chata pan Vraj na sabandh-thi teni Uddham gati che). So, what to speak of those who are born in higher wombs and take shelter of Vraj (To uttam yoni-wala jo vraj-no ashray kare to kahevu shu ?).

Prasang - 23

Anything that has touched the feet/legs is not accepted by Prabhu (Page adeli cheej Prabhu-ne na Khape):

One time, on a day of eclipse, the container (kalash) was filled with water and lef on the sill (manchi). At this point, the container fell and the water (accidently) came under Vitthalraiji's feet, who was at that time also filling the bucket/container.


For this, (he) had all the water in the container was thrown away, because having touched his feet, it cannot be used for Thakorji (Padsesh thayu maate Prabhu ne naa khape).

Vivechan - Gaduvo bharta jal dhalyu (while filling the container, the water spilled /fell), and that water came under the feet, therefore the water that remained in the container also was considered as having come under the feet (not just the water that came under the feet), In seva one should always be very careful and aware of all such minute details. One should do the seva in such a way that people don't see/find out things, but one should not give up seva in fear of committing mistakes (apraadh). One who does seva, their mistakes fall (are reduced/dissolved). But what of those who don't do seva ? Prabhu does not keep a count of such mistakes (apradhs). But one should be extremely careful (in performing seva)

Prasang - 24

A Divine Soul can recognise a related soul as soon as his/her glance falls on them (Daivi-jeev Dhristi Padta Aatmana Sambandhi-ne Odhkhi Shake Che):

One day (He) said that a one Raghav was a Tapo Godiyo, and used to live in Tibari Kund. One day when Aap arrived there, he did darshan and came to Aap's shelter.


Vivechan - From this prasang, only so much needs to be contemplated, that the jeev that is leelatmak, simply after doing the darshan, becomes aasakat into Prabhu and accepts shelter immediately. The relationships or the knowledge of the past becomes instantly realized and the jeev falls into the shelter. This is a very appropriate suggestion. This nivedan/suggestion is called Atma-nivedan (that which is of high-level/purity and has come from the heart)

Prasang - 25

Only a devotee who is entitled can drink/digest the divine/transcendental Nectar (Adhikarij Bhagvad Ras Pi Shake Che):

Once He said Himself, that one time, in Kailas, Parvatiji asked Mahadevji that... You do Bhajan regularly/constantly, so tell me..At this both arrived on earth and sat in a tranquil place in a forest and this talk about Bhajan was told... there was a parrot there (suvo/popat).. he flew off, so Mahadevji said ... the parrot took away the Ras. Therefore, He became Khasi-ana (knowledgeable/enlightened?) and ran away. This Suvo (Shuk/Parrot), went to Indralok and was kept there. This is Shukdevji.


Vivechan - The listener of Bhagvad Varta maybe important, but the taker of the Ras can be anyone. Here, Mahadevji is telling Parvatiji the story, and the Ras of that talk was taken away by the parrot who was sitting there. Meaning, that only the one who is entitled is able to digest the talk (Bhagvad varta - the subject matter). The drinker of the Ras of the fruit is the parrot (Suvo), in this way Shukdevji is also the drinker of the nectar which is the cream-of-the-cream of all the Vedas (Shrimad Bhagvatam)
