All great people have become great because of their love for others – Swami Chinmayananda


To a sincere devotee nothing is impossible. Mere devotion alone is not sufficient. Devotion to the Lord must be ever dancing in our heart, and our hands and legs must sweat in work, our head (intellect) must think well, and thus, ‘holding on’ to Him in love, let us use all the faculties and powers. He has so lovingly given us. Then no one can fail. No one will lose. None can come to sorrow.

All great people have become great because of their love for others. They gained greatness because they learnt to love.

The lord is the sheer embodiment of love. If we understand what love is, teach ourselves to love all, we have served our Lord. There is no puja greater than that, no tapas more effective.

Love is an ability, a capacity in our minds, which is to be systematically cultivated. Once the faculty of love has developed, thereafter, we have the total freedom to love, and any situation is a fertile field for the cultivation of our love.
