What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

Drink the cup of Divine Love.....

Navaratri 2009 day 9

To get the full benefit of chanting the Divine Name, one has to chant it sincerely. One has to chant it wholeheartedly. At first, the chanting is just mechanical but when you go deeper into it, you will lose yourself into the Divine Name and drink the cup of Divine Love. And, once you drink the cup of Divine Love, you will see the world completely differently, because this Love has nothing to do with how we understand love with our minds: This Love is pure nectar, and to understand it, one has to drink it. Until you have reached that point of drinking the Cup of Love, don´t renounce. No matter how beautiful and how tempting the outside could be, drink the Cup of Love! See, there is another Reality in this world. A Reality that these physical eyes will never permit you to see! Krishna said in the Gita, that a true yogi is the “one who sees Me everywhere - in the animals, in the trees, everywhere”, but you can´t just see it like that. Even if you know it in your mind, “Yes, the Lord is present everywhere,” do you see it? No, not many people see it. To come to the point of seeing that, first there is the base of chanting the Divine Names. Whichever name you feel close to, chant it! Chant until you become the Divine Name yourself. And it is possible, I tell you! It is not something that is not possible, you just have to try it!
