Devotion is Identical With Love

February 4th, 2008

revised orison (by s e l v i n)

That which makes the mind soft and strong and strenuous, so it may keep itself in a balanced state even in the condition of pain – that which perpetually creates a pleasant feeling within, is called love.

Devotion is identical with love. The moment devotion is aroused, the love of the Supreme comes.

    I believe that love is identical to devotion and if I may add devotion is also an act of love…
