If one attaches oneself to the Lord through the path of love (prema), it will be possible to realise Him. God’s love is like an infinite and endless ocean. Simply because God’s love is infinite and endless, we cannot carry all of it with us. What we can carry with us will depend on the size of the pot we take. So the first thing to do is to enlarge the size of our pot, and this can be done through spiritual practice (sadhana). The first step in Sadhana, is respecting and loving our parents. The devotion towards them should be such that we recognise the great love and affection with which our parents have brought us up. We must show gratitude to our parents in the form of love or bhakti and by doing what we can to keep them happy. Parents’ blessings are very valuable. Their love and concern for their children is unparalleled.
