1I KNOW this man2, the END of greatness3/the great End4, to be chosen5/having color LIKE SUN6, BEYOND THE REACH OF DARKNESS7.
KNOWING ONLY HIM8, one crosses death9.
There isn’t another way to live the life10.

knowing. There isn’t anything anywhere Eīshān Param Brahm Paramātmā doesn’t know.
So, it’s obvious and self explicit that He knows this man too, if there is such a man.
Nevertheless, Eīshān Param Brahm Paramātmā has expressly told here that He knows this man.
Why is it so?
Naturally, to tell us the exclusive importance of this man on the rest of the creations.
Eīshān Param Brahm Paramātmā wants to convey us, thus, the fact that never treat this man as the rest of the creations.
This man is not as the rest of the creations.
He is more important than the rest of the creations.
And consequently you must study this man separately, especially, particularly.
Yet, nevertheless, it is necessary for you to know this particular man, if you really want to act on the principles stated in Ved.
It is one thing to believe on some principles mentally.
Yet, it’s quite another thing to bring those principles in the practical world.
The persons, not devoted to any movement, can never understand it.
They only say that they are part of some movement.
Actually they are not.
Never judge them from what they say.
Always judge them from what they do.
A person devoted to a movement would never resort to any pretensions whenever he/she is asked to do something for the movement.
While a person who is pretending to be devoted to the movement would always try not to participate in it, on this or that pretext.
Keep carefully the record of the denials and participations of such persons.
You’ll always find that the participations of a person are more than his/her denials if the person is really devoted to the movement.
And the denials of a person are more than his/her participations if the person is really NOT devoted to the movement.
Such Bhrātr’výs always try to deny, or at least reduce, the importance of this man Eīshān Param Brahm Paramātmā has gone to the extent to describe here.
Nothing is greater than this man.
We haven’t created anyone greater than this
Any person, whether man or woman, who claims to be greater than this man, is an outright liar.
Never believe him/her.
He/she will always lead you to darkness.
This man, We’ve described here, is not important because Hinduism is based on him.
Hinduism is not based on this man too.
Yet, it is necessary to follow this man if you really want to establish a society of noble doers.
We’ve made this man capable to do it whatsoever maybe the circumstances ever:
‘Yadā yadā hī dharmasý glānirbhavati, Bhārat!
Abhyutthānamadharmasý, tadātmānam sr’jāmyaham.
Paritrāñāý sādhūnām vināshāý ch’ dushkr’tām,
Dharmsansthāpanārthāý sambhavāmi yugé yugé.’
‘Whenever a person feels humiliation in practicing humanity leading to divinity, I create myself.
To shield practitioners optimum, to obliterate the evil doers, to establish the humanity leading to divinity, I’m present optimum in every era.’
‘Tasý dharmkr’tādéshā vayam anyé ch’ pārthivah,
Charāmo vasudhām kr’tsnām dharmsantānamichchhavah.’
‘By his (Bahart’s) order of Dharm, we (three), and the other leaders of the earth, are roaming on the entire earth, with the desire to spread Dharm.’
— Lord Ram to Vāli’: Ārsh/Vālmīki Rāmāyañ: 4 Kishkindhā Kānd: 18|9
‘Jab jab hohi dharm kī hānī,
Bāđhahin asur adham abhimānī
Tab tab prabhu dhari manuj sharīrā,
Harahin kr’pānidhi sajjan pīrā.’
‘Whenever harm to humanity, leading to divinity, happens, the persons not divine, worst and arrogant outnumber, the capable one assumes human body. He is very kind. He abolishes the soreness of gentlemen and ladies.’
‘Vipr dhénu sur sant hit, līnh manuj avtār,
Nij ichchhā nirmit tanu, māyā guñ gopār.’
‘He took human form for the benefit of the intellectual ones, speech (Ved), divine ones, and sants. His body is self made by his on will. His diplomacy and political prowess is beyond senses.’
— Shrī Rāmcharitmānas: Bālkānd
This man is always criticized even in his own
Yet, none can stop him ever from doing his duties, however powerful his opponents maybe.
The entire history of humankind stands to evidence that this man has always completed the duties allotted to him.
He is not omnipotent.
But why does he need to be so?
He isn’t doing any of his personal work.
He is doing the duties We have allotted to him.
And isn’t it even more than enough that We are Omnipotent?
If We want him to succeed who is there capable ever to defeat this man?
4. None can cross him ever.
He is the ever permanent ideal We’ve made for
The utmost a man can achieve is that he can be equal to this man in each and every respect.
One can never progress beyond this man.
This man is the end of human progress ever possible in Our infinite creations.
5. ‘Varñam’ in original text.
We have not made the humankind to be slave
of this man even.
We haven’t chosen slavery for you if you follow Our orders ever.
How could then We choose slavery as a life system for you?
Yet, you have to choose this man willingly to be your ideal if you really want to progress endlessly.
He is himself progressing endlessly.
The difference between him and Us is endless.
Naturally, his progress itself is endless.
That’s why your own progress is also endless if you even only simply follow him.
There isn’t another way, at all.
You can test it, in any manner whatsoever you may please.
We want you to choose this man willingly, your ideal, if you really want to progress endlessly.
There isn’t any compulsion whatsoever.
If you don’t want to progress endlessly, you can even ignore this man altogether.
But, at the same time, if you really want to progress endlessly, there isn’t another way for anyone except to choose this man as ideal.
We want discipline in Our creations.
Our creations are not ‘andhér nagarīs’ that have a ‘chaupaŧ rājā’.
8. ‘Tamév viditvā’.
It’s an endless work since the Param Purush is himself endless.
If he had been We had never suggested you to know him to live endless.
We have never created anyone to die.
It’s Not Our nature to give something to someone and then take it back ever.
If you lose it ever it’s always due to your incompetence to keep it ever.
Most of you haven’t evolved yourself to keep yourself ever competent to keep something We have granted to you.
Most of you never want to continue to act further after getting something from Us ever.
Isn’t it Anugrah Vr’tratv?
