અને અમારા સત્સંગી એવા જે ચારે વર્ણના મનુષ્ય, તેમણે જન્મનું સૂતક તથા મરણનું સૂતક તે પોતપોતાના સંબંધને અનુસારે કરીને યથાશાસ્ત્ર પાળવું. ||૮૮||
My disciples of the four castes (as per Varnashram) shall observe Sutaka (a period following a birth or death in the family, during which all religious rites are prohibited) immediately after a birth or death of a relative, according to the closeness of the relationship, as prescribed by the scriptures. || 88 ||
Lord shree krishna while leaving his human body gave his spiritual knowledge to shree uddhavji , his private secretary as well as His ardent pet disciple. He asked him to propagate it in Badrikashram and left His body. Again when anarchy, atrocity and low-morality pervaded throughout in India in every respect, uddhavji incarnated himself from the pious Rigvedi Brahmin family i .e from the Ajay sharma and his wife Sumati Devi, at Ayodhya. He was named as Ram Sharma. At about 12 years of age, he left home for further spiritual studies and pilgrimage, but did not return. In the course of his spiritual studies and pilgrimage in the Saurashtra near Girnar, He met a great preacher Atmananda Swami. Atmananda initiated Ram Sharma and renamed him as RAMANAND . Since guru i.e. preacher Atmananda was believing in as only the formless light, Ramanand left him.
