The supreme secret is that you must live in the world where you are born, like the lotus leaf, which though born in water, floats upon it without being affected or wet by it. Of course, it is good to love and adore God with a view to gain some valuable fruit either here or hereafter. But since there is no fruit or object more valuable and worthwhile than God, the Vedas advise us to love God, with no touch of desire in our minds. Love, since you must love for love’s sake. Love God alone, with no other wish or demand, since whatever He can give is but less than He Himself.
