Sadhana Karu Pyare Part - 11

"Swami Mukundananda in this episode explains following lines:
जग में कतहूँ राग जनि करू, द्धेष जनि करू प्यारे ।
हरि में गुरु में ही रहे नित, रक्त तव मन प्यारे ।
सदा सोचहु जाने कब छिन, जाय तनु यह प्यारे ।
मन को मनु शत्रु उसकी, सुनहु जनि कछु प्यारे ।

The mind should be attached to the divine realm alone, nowhere else in the world. Neither to the family nor to the worldly object nor to prestige or material situation. Shree Krishna has repeatedly said in Bhagavad Gita that if a person engages in single minded devotion of God, He will take full care of that person. He further says, "I am easily attained by those who practices single-minded devotion.

Sadhana karu Pyare Part - 10

तृणादपि सुनिचेन तरोरपि सहिस्नुन अमानिन मानदेन कीर्तनीय सदा हरि

1. Consider yourself to be more insignificant than a blade of grass and become more tolerant than a tree.
2. Give respect to others but do not seek respect for yourself.
3. Always chant God's name.

Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in his "Shikshashtaka" stated these 3 points as basic principles for a devotee.

तृण से बढ़ कर दीनता उर, राख नित ही प्यारे ।
वृक्ष से बढ़ कर सहिष्णु, भाव भी हो प्यारे ।
सब को दो सम्मान आपुन, मान जनि चहु प्यारे ।

Now, five hundred years later, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj repeats the same principles in these lines of "Sadhana Karu Pyare" (साधना करु प्यारे).

Sadhana Karu Pyare Part-9

It is not that God is watching us sometimes, He is watching us all the time. Bring this thought into your conscious awareness. At present we have the awareness of "I am" but we escape the thought of "God and Guru are with me". We need to practice thinking "God is with me". As a result, our mind will be attached to God-Guru while we do our daily chores and we will automatically start offering our works to Him. This is the state of Karmyoga.

Sadhana Karu Pyare Part-8

In this episode of the series of discourses on Kripaluji Maharaj's kirtan "Sadhana Karu Pyare"(साधना करु प्यारे), Swami Mukundananda says covers these lines:
दरस हित लग एक पलहूँ, कलप सम तोहिं प्यारे ।
चर अचर में लखहु अपनो, इष्ट कहँ नित प्यारे ।
As you keep these principles (explained in previous episodes of the series), your longing for Sri Krishna will keep increasing. It should increase to the point where one moment seems like an age. Such longing will take you to Sri Krishna. In other words, deep longing for God will unite you with God. Swamiji further explains how deep should be the longing.
