Enter with love the temple that is your own Heart
Union with me (from Bhagavan's Promises and Declarations)
Seeking my true Nature in your Heart, discovering it and rejoicing
in it by bathing in the bliss of my jnana swarupa -- this is union.
Only bhakti sadhana performed continuously with love will
facilitate easily, in a gradual way, this union.
Enter with love the temple that is your own Heart and experience
the bliss of being absorbed in my swarupa, becoming one with it.
I myself will command and control a mind that has died by the
sacrifice of the ego.
