Divine Love

Pure and selfless love towards all living beings, considering everyone as embodiments of the Divine, with no expectation of reward, is true Love. With this attitude, when one regards divinity as present in all beings, he experiences true love. Whatever be the vicissitudes one may face, whatever be the personal sorrows and privations one may undergo, true love will remain unaffected. Today, the moment a difficulty arises, love turns into hatred. True love is the sweet fruit that grows out of the fragrant flower of good deeds. Love rules without recourse to the sword. It binds without laws. Only one who has such true love can be described as human, for, divine love is the basic quality of a true human being.

Treat mercifully those who struggle to survive. Help them as much as you can. Realize your responsibilities. Move reverentially with others. Win the blessings of God and earn good fame amongst your fellow brothers and sisters. Examine your daily activities on the touchstone of righteousness. May you become individuals shining in virtue.

Thyaga (the spirit of sacrifice) is essential for rendering dedicated service. Getting rid of bad qualities is true sacrifice; it is also Yoga (spiritual communion). Realize that whoever you may be serving, you are indeed serving the Divine in various human forms. Those who serve have to cherish this sublime and sacred feeling. They must strive to see God in everyone.
