Source of loveI am not attracted by Thee
on account of mere contemplation of beauty.
For outward appearance is insignificant in my eyes.
I am not attracted towards Thee
on account of the contemplation of beauty.
Even the majesty of Thy merits
and Thy grandeur and glory have not inspired me to love Thee.
It is also not so much valuable to me.
It is not for the majesty of merits
and Thy grandeur and glory that I have fallen in love with Thee.
It is for love’s sake that I have fallen in love with Thee –
love without which life is meaningless
and which is more elegant than beauty, loveliness and merit.
And therefore O Ocean of Love!
I hope to fulfill myself with Thy grace,
casting my eyes filled with collirium of affection at the favorite feet of Thine.
Neither beauty nor luxury but love is the source of our love.
And they both like everything else dwell where love resides.
- Shri Yogeshwarji
