Shreejimaharaj explains that a person contravening the religious decree and taking his knowledge of God for granted is regarded as a demon. The Murti of God possesses innumerable auspicious virtues. Auspicious virtues arise in a person taking the patronage of God. A person having a determination about the Murti of God attains the thirty two virtues of a Sadhu and the auspicious virtues of God arises in his heart. By neglecting the five vartamans i.e. the religious decree, one becomes a traitor to his Guru and a betrayer of commands. Shreejimaharaj  explains  that an individual's understanding depends on eight influences: place (desh), time (kaal), actions (karma), associations (sang), deities (dev), incantations (mantra), initiation (diksha) and scriptures (shastra). If these are good, a person's understanding is good. Whether the final moments of one's  life are pleasant or unpleasant is dependent on the prevalence of time (kaal), or state that is prevalent at that time. An averse person goes to hell (narak) even though he may leave his body in a comfortable way. A Lord's disciple attains salvation. The nature of taking the resort of the Lord's patronage is to recognize no one except Shreejimaharaj as the doer of all and granter of bliss to everyone and to behave in accordance with His will.
