Swayam Faloopteteti Brahma Kumara – Sutra 30

Bhakti is its own reward; thus declare Sanat Kumara, the son of Lord Brahma

Love is its own reward. Such is the opinion of Santa Kumara. Devotion depends on nothing. Love breeds itself. A devotee is born for devotion. Also he seeks his fulfillment from Love alone. The more he pours out of his being, the more love grows. Love reciprocates love. In devotion love functions both as the means and the end as well.

Devotion springs forth in some, sometimes, not because of any specific reason. It emerges itself. And when it springs forth, it engulfs the entire being. One cannot resist this. And when devotion grows it discovers its own fulfillment.
