(Feb. 1954) Upon Baba’s arrival, darshan started and Baba distributed prasad to person after person, numbering in the thousands. The whole district had been overcome by his love, and songs in his praise were sung continuously from the dais. It was a sight of souls intoxicated in his love. Their intoxication increased when this message was read out entitled “Divine Love:”

My message always has been and always will be love divine. When one wholeheartedly loves God, one eventually loses oneself in the Beloved and enters the Eternal Life of God.

Like a tree, this love has branches: branches of wholehearted devotion, perfect nonviolence, perfect selfless service, self-denial, self-sacrifice, self-renunciation, truth and self-annihilation.

In this love are embodied all the yogas known to saints and seekers. The highest aspect of this love, which surpasses that of love itself, is the aspect of complete surrenderance to the will of the Beloved, that is, absolute obedience to his wishes, whatever the cost.
