Papa Ramdas Teachings

Ordinary love based on the physical affinity is a source of miserly both to the lover and the loved. But Divine Love based on the feeling of spiritual oneness is sublime. It is a source of pure bliss. Here you love another not because he is a relation of yours, but because you and he are one in Spirit. The greatness of man does not lie in this vast riches, exalted position, and name and fame, but in the qualities of the heart. If his heart is pure, free, forgiving, compassionate and humble then he is great. The sense of duality vanishes completely once you realize your identity with God. You and He become one. The drop becomes one with the ocean.
