It is a fact, that no one can give to another, what he or she does not posses;
So also in spirituality, one needs to be brimming with the positive to be able to give or share anything worth while!
Very difficult to find this divine quality in humans, so for this endless joy and peace, one has to turn inward and towards the Divine.
Walking on the spiritual path sometimes asks for the extreme in sacrifice and faith.
Also at every step one is put through exams, by the Superior Intelligence; to verify if one is truly ready to move on to the next step.
Shree Krishn, in the Holy Gita asks all seekers to “Surrender” themselves to Him.
To be able to do that one needs to understand what true surrender means.
Complete surrender would mean following one, not blindly, but with the right understanding; which means; to be able to follow the Guru with total belief in his path and way of bhakti towards One Form of God. At the same time maintaining respect for all other Forms and Paths and Religions
Shri Vitthalnathji also known as Shree Gusainji, shared the utmost closeness and love with ShreeNathji.
Govinda Swami, the Asht Chap poet and disciple of Gusainji, has described the amazing relationship of Shri Gusainji with ShreeNathji:
“Love like that, I have never seen.
The son of Yashoda is like the son of Vallabh.
Shesh’s thousands tongues cannot recall His glories.
When Shri Vitthalnathji is going to Gokul,
He asks ShreeNathji’s permission.
The Blessed Lord then goes to His temple window
Just to watch him leave”.
Also in the eighth Akhyan, 20, by Gopaldas, it is mentioned that Shree Navneet Priyaji, a form of Child Krishn, was Shri Vitthalnathji’s personal Krishn Deity in Gokul. Today Navneet Priyaji resides in Shri Nathdwara.

Spiritual ‘Giving’ means: No expectations;
One does not give any type of any gift to the ‘Other’, with any sort of expectations,
as in order to maintain the ‘Purity’ of this ‘Giving’, the act has to be complete in itself.
