Gadhada II-10: Safeguarding the Foetus in the Form of Faith in God

Summary

  1. Those who do not have bhakti for God will understand God to be formless even after reading scriptures that proclaim God has a form.
  2. God has a form because:
  1. Only one who has a form can create something [the whole creation] that possesses a form.
  2. Bhagwān pervades all through His antaryāmi power, but in his abode Akshardhām, He forever possesses a divine form.
  1. Just as a woman who carries a foetus in her womb attains a child, one who carries a foetus in the form of faith in God attains God’s Akshardhām.
  2. Of the three – gnān, vairāgya, and bhakti – the greatest means for developing affection for God is bhakti.
  3. Bhakti:
  1. Is to realise the redemptive virtues in God and to seek His firm refuge.
  2. Is perceiving divinity even in human-like actions of the manifest God.
  3. Having such understanding [as described in 5a and 5b] is known as having bhakti towards God.
  4. One who offers bhakti in this manner can be called a true devotee.
  5. Such bhakti is itself the highest state of enlightenment.
