ગઢડા છેલ્લું પ્રક. ૩૩ વચનામૃત રહસ્યાર્થ પ્રદીપિકા ટીકા

જે ભગવાનના ભક્તને સ્ત્રી, ધન, દેહાભિમાન ને સ્વભાવ એ ચાર વાનામાં કાચ્યપ હોય, ને તે ભગવાનની ભક્તિ કરતો હોય તો પણ એની ભક્તિનો વિશ્વાસ નહિ એની ભક્તિમાં જરૂર વિઘ્ન આવે. કેમ જે ક્યારેક એને સ્ત્રી ધનનો યોગ થાય તો ભક્તિનો ઠા રહે નહિ ને તેમાં આસક્ત થઇ જાય, તથા દેહાધ્યાસ હોય તો જયારે દેહમાં રોગાદિક કષ્ટ પ્રાપ્ત થાય તથા અન્ન વસ્ત્રાદિક ન મળે અથવા કોઈક કઠણ વર્તમાન પાળવાની આજ્ઞા થાય, ત્યારે પણ તેને ભક્તિમાં ભંગ થાય ને વિકળ થઇ જાય ને કાંઈ વિચાર ન રહે ને ચાળા ચૂંથવા લાગે, તથા કોઈક રીતનો સ્વભાવ હોય તેને સંત ટોકવા માંડે ને તે સ્વભાવ પ્રમાણે વર્તવા ન દે ને બીજી રીતે વર્તાવે ત્યારે પણ એ મૂંઝાય, ને એને સંતના સમાજમાં રહેવાય નહિ ત્યારે ભક્તિ તે ક્યાંથી રહે? માટે જેને દૃઢ ભક્તિ ઇચ્છવી હોય તેને એ ચાર વાનામાં કાચપ રાખવી નહિ ને એ ચારની કાચપ હોય તો પણ સમજીને ધીરે ધીરે ત્યાગ કરવી તો વાસુદેવ ભગવાનની નિશ્ચળ ભક્તિ થાય. આ વાર્તા તે આમ જ છે પણ એમાં કાંઈ સંશય નથી.

Gadhada Last Section Vach. 33 Vachanamrut Rahasyarth Pradeepika Tika

If a disciple of God has a tendency of succumbing to the four influences, i.e. women, wealth, arrogance about his body, and his personal temperament, even though he performs devotion to God, his devotion cannot be trusted; obstacles in his devotion will definitely arise. This is because, on occasion, he may encounter women or wealth and then, because he becomes infatuated by them, his devotion does not remain as it previously was. A person may consider himself to be the body. So when he is inflicted with a physical illness; he does not receive food, clothing, etc.; or he is commanded to comply with a difficult vow, a flaw arises in his devotion and he becomes disturbed. He loses the ability to think rationally and starts to behave improperly. He may have a particular temperament for which a sant rebukes him and does not allow him to behave in accordance with that temperament. He instead, tries persuading that person to behave differently. As a result of this, he becomes frustrated and is unable to remain in the company of sants. How then can his devotion remain? Therefore, someone who wishes to maintain a firm devotion should not be at all susceptible to those four influences. If there are any deficiencies in those four, slowly but surely, one should eliminate them through understanding. He will then definitely develop devotion towards Lord Vasudev. Undoubtedly this is the way of developing devotion.

More Scriptures
Remarkable strength exists in devotion to God. By performing devotional singing and scripture recitals, one's ego is destroyed.
