SYNOPSIS: The capability of selfless devotion is so much that GOD comes in the bonding of a devotee. One who undertakes selfless devotion and seeks nothing from GOD and only seeks GOD from GOD is the best. READ THE FULL ARTICLE BELOW -

Some worship GOD due to fear that nothing ominous happens. Some worship GOD for the fulfillment of desires because they have an aspiration for money, son, grandson, wealth and grandeur. But GOD looks forward to those devotees who worship GOD due to selfless devotion.

There are a large number of people who worship GOD due to fear. Every Saturday you will find people going to the temple of Shree Shanidevji who go there because of fear that some ominous thing must not happen to them. Some astrologers had injected fear in them that if they do not do so they will continue to face trouble. Such people worship GOD due to fear. There is nothing wrong with it because on any pretext they are at least worshipping GOD.

Secondly, there are those persons who worship GOD for the fulfillment of their desires. Someone has a desire for money and wealth, someone has a desire for a son and grandson, someone has a desire for grandeur and someone has a desire for post and prestige. They know that it is only GOD who can fulfill all their desires. Therefore, for various desires, various people worship GOD. The number of people who worship GOD for the fulfillment of their desires is the greatest.

We have seen two categories of people who worship GOD. The first is due to fear and the second is due to the fulfillment of desires. Now let us see that category whose number is very small but who are the dearest to GOD.

This category is of those devotees who worship GOD due to selfless devotion. They do not want anything from GOD. They only want GOD from GOD. They do not seek anything from GOD and only seek GOD from GOD. GOD comes in the bonding of such selfless devotees who seek GOD from GOD. Seeking nothing from GOD and only seeking GOD from GOD is the base of their great devotion.

Those who worship GOD due to fear GOD makes him fear-free. GOD turns their inauspiciousness into auspiciousness. GOD fulfills the desires of the one who has desires. These two things GOD does immediately.

But the fulfillment of the desire of the one who seeks GOD from GOD due to selfless devotion is a bit difficult because GOD has to come in the bonding of such devotees.

A saint had explained this with a beautiful parable. Assume that a very renowned person has landed from an airplane in the airport and is meeting his loved ones. He is busy hugging them and at the same time a beggar comes with his bowl to seek the beggary, then the person will immediately draw some coins from his pocket and will give it to the beggar so that he continues to meet his loved ones without being disturbed by the beggar. Similarly, when GOD meets His selfless devotees and showers love on them, then the person who comes for seeking fulfillment of desires is given as per his desire so that he does not disturb GOD and GOD continues the contiguity of His selfless devotees.

Selfless devotion is the biggest and best devotion because it is through this devotion that GOD feels obligated to come in the bonding of the devotee.

Therefore a creature should only undertake selfless devotion in life. Another reason for it is that GOD is our Supreme Father. He knows our requirements much more than us. Therefore He has declared to uphold and fulfill all the requirements (Yogkshem) of His selfless devotees in Shrimad Bhagavad Geetaji.

Let us understand this by a small example. A merchant has two servants. The first one serves him well but demands an increment of salary once or twice in a year. The second one serves him even better than the first and never demands any increment of salary. The merchant will have a soft corner for the second one who serves him more and never seeks anything.

Similarly, GOD bestows His mercy on those who undertake great devotion and in return seeks nothing from GOD. If we undertake devotion and seek something in return then it does not remain devotion and it becomes a business. It is like this that we have undertaken devotion and have redeemed it.

Therefore we must undertake the true devotion which is selfless devotion in which there is no demand from GOD.
