What is the difference between God realization and liberation?
In the pravachan 'kshana bhangur vairagya' SMJi had mentioned that" man ko hatane aur lagane ke beech mein kuch kadiya aur hein".Which are the kadis that SMJi had mentioned?
1) You should never ask God for any material thing. If you are asking God for material things during your devotion, it means that you are desiring the world, not desiring God. Then it means your mind is in the world, not God. You should not even ask for liberation, because that also means you are not attaching your mind to God, you are just asking for something from Him. You should only desire for His darshan and His prem, then your mind will get attached to Him.2) Instead of worshiping God as "God", adopt one of the four ways of feeling related to Him: dasya bhav (loving Him as a kind master, and you are His servant); sakhya bhav (loving Him as your friend); vatsalya bhav (loving Him as your child, and you are His mother or father); or madhurya bhav (loving Him as your beloved).3) You should be ananya to Him. This means in your heart you feel related only to Shree Krishna, you depend only on Him, and you desire only Him, not anyone under maya, including the devtas in swarg (Indra, etc.). This is exclusiveness in devotion.4) Once you have understood and adopted these points, you have to attach your mind to Shree Krishna by doing 'roop dhyan'. Roop dhyan is a style of meditation where you form an image of Shree Krishna in your mind. In other words, you meditate on His form. You can also think of His leelas. The reason roop dhyan is important is that if you are not thinking of Shree Krishna's form, it means your mind is somewhere in the world - then it is increasing its attachment to the world instead of Shree Krishna. I have only described these points very briefly. For a full description, please read "Prem Ras Siddhant" by Jagadguru Shree Kripali Ji Maharaj.

WHOP GETS THE RESULT OF KARMA IN NEXT BIRTH – SOUL / BODY
what is bhav deh?plz elaborate
It is important to note that the quality of your bhav deh develops according to the quality of your devotional feelings during your sadhana. What I mean is that if you worship Shree Krishna with sakhya bhav, you will receive the body of a gwalbal and get to be in all the sakhya bhav leelas in Divine Golok. If you worship Him with vatsalya bhav, you will receive that mother/father to child relationship with Him forever in Divine Golok. And if you worship Him with madhurya bhav, then you will receive the form of a gopi and get to participate in all the kunj leelas of Divine Vrindaban abode.
If we want to reach that highest level of madhurya bhav, then we must set that as our goal from the very outset of our sadhana, because our bhav deh will be formed accordingly. We should pay particular attention to selflessness and try to learn from the examples of the gopis and rasik Saints who established the adarsh of true selfless devotion to Krishna (loving Him for His happiness; and feeling happy in His happiness).
The Garga Samhita states that any mantras or techniques of Bhakti meditation instructed outside of the four authorized Vaishnava sampradayas, are completely lacking in effectiveness.
Kripalu Ji Maharaj says that ‘Anybody who is a ‘Mukt Jeevatma’ will also go into the ‘Paramatma phase’ only for a short duration and ‘Has to return to this world’. Because when ‘Jeevatma is reunited with Paramatma where is the question of His return? Can you please elaborate on this?
The first type of jeevan mukt is one who has fully purified his mind through sadhana, thus he has no remaining desires or attachments. These desires and attachments are called avidya maya. They can be conquered through one's own sadhana, because they were created by the mind and have no existence outside of the mind. This jeevan mukt is said to be liberated from avidya maya, and may spend long periods of time absorbed in samadhi. However, the mind of this jeevan mukt is still mayic - it is in a pure, sattvic state of maya, but still contains the unlimited past sanskars from unlimited past lifetimes. Those sanskars cause him to come out of his samadhi, and as soon as he does, he is liable to be attracted by the world again and start desiring and developing attachments. That is why Ved Vyas says 'jeevan muktaa api punarbandhanam kaam karmabhih': "Even a jeevan mukt can again come under the grip of worldly desires and start performing binding karm."
To become truly liberated, the first type of jeevan mukt has to conquer vidya maya, which is the original cosmic energy. This is not a creation of the mind, and thus it cannot be conquered through sadhana performed by the mind. This vidya maya is an eternal power of Shree Krishna and cannot be crossed by any means. However, if that jeevan mukt does bhakti and surrenders to Shree Krishna, then with Shree Krishna's kripa, he is freed from vidya maya. Then he is truly liberated and can never come under the effect of maya again. For as long as he remains in his body, he is called a jeevan mukt. When he leaves his body, he will merge into nirakar brahm and never be born again on earth.
1)Is it not true that a Mahapurush's children are also mahapurushs.How can otherwise an ordinary soul become so fortunate to get a mahapurush's association as his/her parent?. 2(a)If beggars come to our door and beg for something(money,clothe,food etc),since we don't know that person(patra/apatra), we have to say a'no' to him & close our door even if it hurts him.Will it be a paap from my side to hurt him?Iam really confused of how to practically deal with such people (b)There are also people who come for the collection on some special occasions(festivals,celebrations,constructions).How to deal with such people?

2.a) Giving food and clothing is the best option in these cases. Every human has a right to these basic necessities. Giving money is risky because the money could be used for something else other than the intended purpose of the donor. Then you would share in that pap if something bad is done with the money.
2.b) When it comes to donating to organizations, this is one way you could approach it: find an organization(s) that you trust and give charity through them in order to support their philanthropic activities. In God's eyes, He expects us to give charity according to our means. We should give what we can to help those in need. It does not matter whether all of those donations go through one single organization, or through many organizations. Thus, if someone comes to your door and you are already donating as much as you can through other reputable organizations, there is nothing wrong with telling them this fact and saying that you cannot give any more right now. However, if you happen to know and trust the organization being represented by the people at your door, then you may also choose to give to them. That is up to you.
