Views of Fake Saints of the Hindu Religion:-

Shri Kripalu ji Maharaj and Shri Devkinandan ji Maharaj believe that Krishna proclaimed his divinity and urged others to find solace in him, interpreting "Vraj" as an invitation to approach him.

Shri Vanshidhari Prabhu explained that in chapter 18 verse 66, "Vraj" is depicted as "to come," but its meaning varies in other verses depending on the grammatical structure.

In his book, Shri Acharya Sudhansu ji Maharaj, Shri Asharam Bapu ji, Shri Satpal ji Maharaj, Swami Ramsukh das ji, and Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan ji interpreted the term "Vraj" as "to arrive".

Shri Atamnand Ji Maharaj corrected the Bhagavad Gita due to some adulteration over time. In chapter 18, he removed all verses except verse 63.

A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada translated "Vraj" as "to go" in his book, but in the complete translation of chapter 18 verse 66, he used "Vraj" as "to come."

Views of Tatvadarshi Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj

Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj claims that previous Geeta translators made significant errors, stating that "Vraj" actually means "go." He supports his argument with evidence from the Sanskrit-Hindi Dictionary. In Chapter 2, verse 7, Arjun expresses confusion and seeks guidance from Krishna, surrendering as his disciple. Maharaj ji questions why Krishna in Chapter 18, verse 66 would advise Arjun to seek refuge in him if Arjun is already under his protection.

In Chapter 7, verse 29, Krishna states that those who learn from the "Tatvdarshi Sant" gain deep spiritual understanding and awareness of "tat brahm". Acquiring knowledge of "tat brahm" leads to a sole desire for liberation from old age and death. In Chapter 8, verse 1, Arjun asks about the identity of "tat brahm" to suc which Krishna reveals in Chapter 8, verse 3, that "tat brahm" is called "Param Akshar Brahma" and is separate from the one who imparts Geeta Gyan.

Identity of the Tatvdarshi Sant

According to Maharaj ji, Chapter 15 verses 1-4 provide evidence of the identity of the Tatvdarshi Sant. It states that whoever clearly describes the peepal tree symbolising the entire world will be recognized as a Tatvdarshi Sant. 

Existence of a Supreme Deity Separate from the Speaker of Geetaji

In Chapter 8, verses 5 and 7 of the Geeta, the speaker of Geeta says Arjun if you want to attain me, worship me even in the time of war. In chapter 8, verses 8-10, the speaker emphasizes that worshipping the (name) mantra of the Supreme God leads to attaining Him. In chapter 17, verse 23, the only mantra of Param Akshar Brahma is "om-tat-sat." 

Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj has proven the existence of a supreme deity separate from the Speaker of Geetaji, but previous translators, unaware of this higher divine being, mistakenly depicted Krishna as the ultimate God in their translations of the Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta.

The interpretation of the word "vraj" by all the Gurus aligns, except for Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj, who has a different view. Since the majority interpret "vraj" as "to come," this must be correct, implying that Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj's interpretation is incorrect.
