This is the bedrock on which you can build the mansion of happiness, this recognition of the Divine, that motivates you from within. You claim to be devotees, with hearts full of love and devotion; you roll rosaries over your fingers and roll the Name over your tongues; you indulge in breathing exercises or contortional feats, but, unless you revere all and worship in the abandon of selfless love, you only insult the unique tradition of this land. Passion, agitation, anxiety - these degrade human nature. They are born out of hatred, malice or envy, which love alone can counteract. When you have here the very Embodiment of Love as your dearest treasure, why welcome into your hearts the waves of hatred, faction, fear and doubt? Why turn them into volcanoes of cruelty and wickedness when they can smile as green valleys of fragrant flowers?
