Value of God is known Only by the spiritual knowledge

The value of Nivrutti is infinite – none can pay its actual value.

Its value is decided as total – sacrifice and total surrender of self.

It may be just one rupee for – beggar and crore for crore owner,

Little flour for Saktuprastha was – sufficient to purchase Nivrutti,

Even crores of wealth of Dharma Raja – could not purchase it since

Some thing remained after charity, - this is the justified value of God.

Since a beggar purchased Nivrutti – just by one rupee, a crore lord

Should not think that he can – also purchase it by one rupee only.

The real value is infinite and – this is only the maximum possible value.

You are sacrificing price for – priceless items in the world by ignorance.


You have overestimated value – of items, which have no value at all!

When God comes to you to sell – Himself for the same price since

You have that much only, for – the possible maximum available

Value in your case, even though – He has infinite value, you do not

Pay even the price you have paid – for the valueless items in world.

A chain of diamonds is waste for – a monkey and its value for it is

One rupee by which some white – fruits similar to diamonds can be

Purchased, when the monkey couldn’t – eat diamonds, it is thrown,

Its value is not even one rupee, - monkey does not know real value,

Since it is ignorant of value of – diamonds, value of God is known

Only by the spiritual knowledge, - Jnana yoga is very important

Through out spiritual progress, - hence Shankara stressed on it.

A village lady got the same chain – of diamonds, its value for her

Is only ten rupees, since she purchased – a similar chain of

White beads, she cannot discriminate – diamonds and white beads.

When the chain is lost – she does not bother about it since just

Ten rupees are lost for her, - again ignorance is the basis here.


A diamond merchant got it, - he knows its real value and hence

Dances with bliss and hides it – in a locker carefully and if it is

Lost, he will cry for it throughout – his life and is severely shocked.

The reason here is the knowledge – of the real value of diamonds.



Atheist is monkey who throws God – finding no trace of use from Him.

Village lady is a devotee in Pravrutti, - God is just an instrument to

Achieve worldly happiness, if God is – lost, just an instrument is lost,

You have alternative worldly means - to achieve worldly happiness.

The merchant is a devotee of – Nivrutti giving highest value to God.

There are some special people, - one says that he does not need the diamonds at all.

He feels that the diamond seller is – running after him to give chain freely

And since he is not in need, he is – refusing it! If he feels that unless

The seller sells the chain; he will be – punished by the king and so far

None turned to purchase it, fearing – for punishment he is requesting us

To take chain freely, then some body – may also demand some money

Along with chain so that the seller – is saved from punishment of king.
