Dedicated Acts bring Ananda

Prema is filial piety when directed towards the parents, companionship when it flows towards friends, love when it is felt towards the partner, respect when it moves one towards elders and affection when your are drawn towards children.  Bhakti affects your acts in three forms : you do some acts consciously in order to demonstrate your love or to give vent to the prema that animates you; you do acts as dedicated offerings to enhance the glory of the Lord, in a spirit of worshipful humility, as if you are laying at His feet all that you are and all that you are capable of; and you do acts which are full of prema towards all as part of your mere existence, automatically, without any tinge of self or whiff of violence upsetting the performance of the act.  The dedicated act leads on to all activity being dedication; the ananda makes you feel that your effort has been worthwhile.  That is the end, the aim, the inspiration.

- Baba -


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
