Realizing God through Intense Love
Lovely lines from one of Baba's Nectarine Discourses
The only easy and sure means for ordinary people to realize God,
without regard to their caste, nationality, sex or any other qualification,
and without their having to practice various austerities and penances,
is intense devotion and love for God.
The Gopikas experienced the continuous presence of God within and without.
They showed that such sublime love was possible for ordinary persons,
with little knowledge of the scriptures or spiritual disciplines.
They demonstrated the inextricable link between the Divine and the individual.
