By true Satsang, the mind is purified and the intelligence is clear about the inner being. If intelligence is clear, then ‘Divyagyan’ or God's true self is revealed. By ‘Divyagan’ we can have darshan of God, who is within us all.
Love is the main thing. You can do japa, chant mantras, or do worship, but if you do not have love then all these things are worthless.
If you want to have some coconut, first you have to remove the husk, then break through the hard shell to find the coconut. This illusion of self has been with us for a long time, so it is hard to break. But we all have to try very hard to do this. When the ego is removed, then in its place we will have devotion. Devotion means complete love. This devotion is what we are looking for.
