What is true devotion? How should we refine our sadhana to attain it? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.
If your devotion does not stand by you when you seek to revere reflections of God in the body-mirrors that move around you, when you peer into and prostrate before these images of God that parade before you wherever you cast your eyes, how can you claim to be devoted to God? Without steady faith in and sincere practice of this sadhana, if you simply congregate, prepare and share prasadams on every conceivable occasion, or even sing and extol God, I must say that your efforts are all in vain! Expand your hearts. Enlarge your vision. Enlarge the circle of kinship and take more and more of your fellow beings into the tabernacle of your hearts. And adore them in loving worship. Wisdom is only compassion at its highest; for, through empathy you enter the heart of another and understand him through and through. Finding unity in this diversity of roles is true wisdom!
