transformation through devotion


“Devotion must be accepted as the highest mission in life;
it leads humanity towards the stage of subtlety,
and finally ensconces a person in the state of Supreme Bliss,
transforming the heart from a desert into a fertile oasis.”

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti


there is a reason for the mistery…

«So why should He remain acintyá [beyond the sensory and intellectual understanding]? According to the devotees, the reason is that had He come within the scope of thought, all human beings would have got Him within their reach and that would have been the end of their love – there would be no further desire to attain Him. The advantage of His remaining acintya is that there is an incessant desire to attain Him. This very desire to attain Him will make the humans greater and greater. That’s why a poet said:

“You have become infinite,
The right decision indeed
As you will remain infinite for ever.
Had you come within our reach,
Noone would have further sought to embrace you.”»

Maturity of love

«You should make Him the only goal of your life. For this, you require integrity, devotion and singular and earnest love for Him. He is not attainable without reverence and unflagging and unflinching devotion. When the devotional depth will come, love, too, will be out-brimming with high sentiments – will be full and over-flowing. When love will reach its completeness – its saturation point, self-surrender will become easy and simple. In that state alone will come your final realization of the Supreme Consciousness.
Where “I” is, “He” is not… where “He” is, “I” is not.
Remember, devotion is pre-requisite of Sádhaná. Maturity of devotion is love and maturity of love is He.»
