God’s appointment for service and salvation


Knowledge and devotion are helpful to find out the correct address of God and to please Him perfectly. Once, God is pleased with you, you will be appointed by God in His divine service to uplift the people of this world. The correct address of God is only the contemporary human incarnation. The real devotion to please God is only the practical love expressed on God without aspiring any fruit in return from Him. Once you are appointed in the service of God, there is no need of knowledge and devotion for your sake. You have to preach the knowledge to others by clarifying their doubts and you have to express your devotion for the sake of the others only to improve their devotion. Once you are appointed in the divine service, there is no need of doing anything to save your self. As soon as you have joined in the divine duty, you are already saved. All your efforts must be only to save others.


You may praise the officer to get the job after knowing the correct address of the officer and the correct clue to please him. All these end once the appointment order is fetched. There is no need of investigating the correct address and the correct clues and there is no need to praise the officer, once the aim is fulfilled. After getting the order also, if you continue to investigate about the officer or continue to praise the officer, without doing your assigned duties, the officer will be displeased. The officer continues in his pleasant state if you are performing the assigned duties. There will be no salary for performing the divine service because the appointment order itself is the eternal salary.


Such opportunity to participate in the service of God is very rare and no scholar aspires for any fruit in doing the divine service. Unless the aspiration for every fruit from God is burnt, the appointment order from God is not issued. Unless you are saved, you will not be appointed in the divine service. Therefore, there is no meaning in aspiring for any fruit and in doubting the safety of the self after joining the service of God. Both these aspects are supported by the substratum called selfishness. Unless the selfishness disappears completely, there is no opportunity for the divine appointment. Shankara, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammad etc., were such blessed souls appointed by God. Shankara told that He was not having desire even for salvation because He was already salvated due to the fact that He was appointed in the divine service (Namokshasyaakaamkshaa…..).
