STUDY OF THE BHAGAVADGITA | CHAP 12 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
|| < : SIMPLY LOVE GOD : > ||
I am telling you a simple recipe .
Be immensely affectionate to GOD .
You can LOVE GOD and want nothing else .
Always wanting GOD is the highest sadhana , as you will realize one day or the other .
If you do not want GOD , all your efforts , concentration of will — dhyana , bhakti , karma — nothing will work .
As LOVE can emanate from one spontaneously on account of the preponderance of the emotional faculty in oneself , LOVING GOD is considered as easier , especially in this age of distraction and sufferings of various kinds .
The directing of one's feelings and emotions to GOD in utter devotion and surrender is to be considered as the best of Yogas .
You need not go to Patanjali's Sutras or Yoga Vasishtha or the Upanishads ; they are very difficult things .
If you LOVE anyone , the LOVE is reciprocated automatically .
Your affection will be felt even by animals and trees .
Therefore , if you cannot sit for meditation every day and carry on this practice , AT LEAST IN YOUR HEART BE DEVOTED TO GOD .
