Surrender and Bliss

सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज |
अहं त्वां सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुच:

sarva-dharmān parityajya
mām ekaḿ śaraṇaḿ vraja
ahaḿ tvāḿ sarva-pāpebhyo
mokṣayiṣyāmi mā śucaḥ

Arjuna had seen Lord Krishna as the Supreme Almighty, the administrator of Universe. GOD has always been and will always be a well wisher of human kind. Sufferings, bliss are fruits of the karmas that human beings deliver. Here too, Lord Krishna as a benign friend renders words of wisdom and pedagogy which has been the most confidential and supreme.

GOD Krishna calls Arjuna as HIS dearest friend which gives an inference that Lord Krishna treats every human being as HIS friend. As a close friend, GOD divulged out the ways to reach him and get disconnected from the cycle of birth and death. Lord Krishna stated that being HIS devotee, one should always think of HIM (Tasmatsarveshu kalwshu) irrespective of time, season, happiness or sorrow. By getting imbibed in the devotional trance of Lord Krishna and dedicating all works to HIM, one would finally reach HIS abode. God Krishna declares that HE would absolve an individual of all sins in the wake of complete surrender before HIM.
In society, human beings have invented and ensconced many principles regarding those as customs to offer obeisance to GOD. GOD has never asked to create exclusive norms to worship HIM. HE had said “patram pushpam falam” ,

“ offer me flower, fruits water; I would gladly acknowledge your devotion and obeisance”.
Human kind for various comfort zones created different religions dividing humanity. Thereafter, displaying rigid ideologies on the pretext of up keeping the maxims of the religion created ruckus in the society further distancing unity and love of human kind. Riots take place on the ground to protect a sect or religious beliefs.
Women’s entry is precluded in a shrine for some shoddy and irrational reasons. All these self created maxims, principles and norms have massacred the mutual trust amongst human race. In garb of protectors of human rights, the society has been given the resemblance of a jungle with increase of crime as well as barbarity. The print and electronic media project the sorry state of the society but exploitation, atrocities, violent disorders still are rampant in the remotest of areas in our country .
Lord Krishna advices to abandon all such trivial, worthless self invented principles and get rid of the claustrophobic sphere of religionism and surrender onto HIM. Thus HE would absolve all sins making a person a pure, impeccable soul.

    (Excerpt from message of Shri Datta Swami)

    Every spiritual aspirant aims at the bliss to be obtained by himself (Atmaananda). Salvation means liberation from all the worries & misery. Sayujyam or Kaivalyam means reaching the God to attain the bliss because God is Infinite Ocean of bliss. If this is the aim of spirituality, how is it different from materialism? In materialism also everybody wants to release from worries and misery and wants to attain permanent happiness, which is called bliss....  more
