Devotion has to be continuous and uninterrupted like the flow of oil from one vessel to another. Without love (prema), nothing in this world can be acquired. Only when there is love, does attachment (anuraga) in its turn create the desire to protect and guard. In the path of self-effort based devotion, also called as ‘young-one-of-the-monkey’ path, the child has to rely on its own strength to protect itself — wherever the mother might jump about, the child has to attach itself fast to the mother’s belly and not release its hold, even if pulled apart! So too, the devotee has to stand the tests at the hands of the Lord and hold on to the Lord’s name at all times and under all conditions, tirelessly, without the slightest trace of dislike or disgust, bearing the ridicule and the criticism of the world and conquering the feelings of shame and defeat. This type of devotion was practiced by little child Prahlada.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 51.

Sathya Sai Baba
Desire destroys devotion, anger destroys wisdom, greed destroys work – hence sacrifice
these bad qualities. - Baba
