The heart of any Divine Discourse of Bhagavan Baba is Love. In fact, this has been His singular message from day one of His declaration of Avatharhood. In a beautiful discourse, Swami said,
A heart without love is lifeless; Can you call that life Merely because there is Breath in the body? It is just a pair of bellows.
“Love, love, love. I love all and I ask all to love. My greatest wealth is love. People speak about My powers and My miracles, but My Love is My greatest miracle. Develop love for God. There is nothing more powerful than Divine love. All should share in this love. Only then there will be oneness.
All your actions must be aimed at purifying your minds and hearts to experience the Divine. When the heart is pure, the light of wisdom shines. The illumined heart becomes the receptacle of pure love. Love is everything. A person without love is a living corpse. Love is not the relationship between man and man, or between man and other objects. It is inherent in every being. "Mamaatma Sarvabhootaatma" ("I am the Spirit immanent in all beings"). The Divine Atma is present in all beings. The Atma has no form. It is experienced as Love. If there is no Love, there is no Atma. Hence, love is our life-breath. Love is our soul. Love is our everything. Acquire love through love. Only through love can unity in diversity be experienced. ”
Such is the importance of Love. Though this concept on the face of it sounds simple, the nuances inherent in it are numerous. And Bhagavan on various occasions has explained this to us very elaborately. To recapitulate these precious pearls from the divine lips, we have this special quiz, offered to you with love!
