After evening arati, the 61st Vachanamrt of Gadhada First Chapter was being read in the assembly. In it, it is said that how much atmanistha (establishment in one’s true form, the self) is useful at the end time (death).” Gordhanbhai said, “In it, it is said about the end time and it is said that one leaving body goes in the abode of God. How to understand it?” Bapasri said, “When it is said that leaving body one wants to go to the abode of God means one should know it as the last journey. When can it be said that body has been left? It is said when jiva meets Maharaj and muktas and in their association he believes that his soul is separate from body and it is the form of Purusottam. It means one should understand that even though we are in body it is the end time of body. Unless Maharaj and muktas meet and unless they are not associated by us, the body of five elements leaves this world but it is bound again. Therefore, it cannot be said that the body has left. With this body, we should go to and fro Aksardham, and achieve it and go to and fro in the bliss of Murti and achieve Murti. Then there remains nothing to be done. The goal of achieving is Sriji Maharaj. After achieving Him during the lifetime, liberation is certain. He will not perceive even a little happiness in Aksardham, innumerable muktas, other infinite divinities, places, excepting in Murti. Everything is there in Murti. After getting such knowledge from Anadi muktas he will not doubt whether he will be liberated or not, something remains to be achieved or not, or still some happiness remains to be achieved or not. By and by, his knowledge of new bliss, supernatural power, greatness of Sriji Maharaj goes on increasing. He enjoys it just as fishes enjoy in water and in this enjoyment, he plays in the bliss of Sriji Maharaj along with infinite muktas.” Talking thus, he was pleased and said, “The one who has got association of great Anadi has installed Murti in his soul. But he does not know it- when he sees it, it will appear to him. And said, ‘Sarvene sanmukh bhase re sarve samun joi rahya’ (all see Him before them and all looked at Him). The one who looks at the sun and the moon in the sky would think that they are in front of him. Moreover wherever he throws his glance at the earth, and whatever he sees, all will appear to him in front of him. Similarly, it seems that all muktas are in front of Him and Lord Purusottam looks at them. Besides those who have become muktas by associating, by services and with the blessing of great muktas who are the form of Purusottam have as much knowledge as Purusottam has and can see as much as He can and throw their glance as far as He can. Just as the one who got the sight of the sun can see as far as the sun can and knows as much as Lord Purusottam knows. Muktas can see as much as Lord Purusottam can see and wherever He is they are also there and that much they see- Lord Purusottam is omnipresent- sees everywhere, knows everything. Great muktas are like Him and they do not live separately from Purusottam and nothing is unknown to them. Talking thus, when the time was over the talk came to end with the Jay ghosh of Sahajanand Swami Maharaj. Then there was shayan (Ṭhakorji going bed) arati, so, Bapasri came to the temple for darsan. || 33 ||
