On the night of Vaishakh Vad 10th Tribhovanbhai of Halvad asked a question, “In a falk-song it is said, ‘Kidibai chalya sasre, nav man kajal sai; hathi liya godme, oont liya latakai‘ (The ant started for in-laws’ house, anointed eyes with eye-salve weighing 180 kilograms, the elephant was seated in the lap and the camel was hung.). What is the meaning of this line?” Bapashri replied, “Here the ant means the soul, in-laws means the abode of Shriji Maharaj, eye-salve means nine veils. If those veils are removed, it is anointed in the eyes. In the place of the camel there is Brahmkoti and in the place of elephant there is Aksharkoti. The soul becomes so powerful that it takes all of them to Shriji Maharaj.”

Amichandbhai asked, “Bap pahela beta janmya, pichhe motabhai; dhamdhumse pita janmya, pichhe janmi mai. (the son was born before the father, then the elder brother, the father was born with great celebration and then the mother was born.) What is the meaning of this?” Bapashri replied, “The younger brother is the knowledge which comes first by the association of saint, then non-attachment comes by itself and it should be known as elder brother, then comes bhagvat dharma (duties shown for devotion) it should be known as father and then comes love-oriented devotion for Shriji Maharaj it should be known as mother.”

Pranshankarbhai of Saraspur asked, “Gappine ghar gappi avya, kaho gappiji; bar hathnu chibhadu ne ter hathnu bee (A liar came to liar’s house, and said that the muskmelon is twelve hands long and its seed is thirteen hands long). What is the meaning of it?” Bapashri, replied, “The muskmelon should be known as maya (illusion) and the seed should be known as soul. When the soul becomes free from maya (illusion) it should be understood that it has become bigger than maya (illusion).”

Swami Ishwarcharandasji asked, “In old vachanamrut a square of Narayan, Nar, Hari, and Krushna is said to be first. How to understand this? The second one is said to be of Vasudev, Aniruddha, Pradyumna and Sankarshan how to understand that?” Bapashri replied, “Shriji Maharaj is said to be Narayan, Anadi Muktas are called Krushna because they attract the souls into Shriji Maharaj’s Murti. Param Ekantik are in front of Shriji Maharaj and they are said to be Nar. Ekantiks are said to be Hari because they take the soul from illusion (maya) make them satsangi and thus they free from illusion so Ekantik are said to be Hari. Shriji Maharaj should be known as Narayan, Anadi Muktas as Krushna, Param Ekantik as Nar and Ekantik as Hari- it is one square. In the second square luminescence of Shriji Maharaj is said to be Vasudev, Mul-Akshar is said to Anirudha, Pradyumna is said to Shwetdwippati Vasudevbrahm and Mahakal is said to be Sankarshan. The luminescence of Shriji Maharaj gives power and godliness to Akshar, etc. invisibly so it is called Vasudev. The creator which is Mul-Akshar is called Aniruddha. Vasudevbrahm takes out souls from illusion and takes them to his abode Brahmpur. There he takes them with him and gives them his happiness so he is called Pradyumna. Mahakal is called Sankarshan because at the time of ultimate destruction he destroys the work of God who is Mul-Purush or Krushna. Shriji Maharaj’s luminescence which is Vasudev, Mul-Aksharkoti which is Anirudha, Vasudevbrahm who is Pradyumna and Mahakal which is Sankarshan should be known as second square.” || 23 ||
