Ignoring Madhava (God) who is free from Maya (delusion) and spending time immersed in Maya is fruitless; in this scenario, sorrow alone is the final gain. Whomsoever you love, that love has to come to an end. The self-same Lord gives and takes, as and when He wishes. Everything is His; so how foolish it is to lament when things belonging to Him are taken back by Him? The wise man will therefore not pine over anyone or feel undue attachment to anything. Let all the pining and all the attachment be reserved for the Lord; He alone is eternal; He is the source of all joy. For the rest, love a thing as a thing, not more. Love man as man, not more. If you love them more, it is a sign that you have been deceived about their real nature. - Dharma Vahini, Page 18.
