      GREAT IMPORTANCE AND VALUE OF BHAKTI

      From the Spiritual Discourses of Sant Mat called "Prem Patra
      Radhasoami," by Huzur Maharaj:

      1. 'Bhakti' means 'Prem' or Love and its outward expression or form
      is the Force of Attraction and the Force of Cohesion. All this
      creation has manifested itself from the Force of Love and is being
      sustained with its help.

      2. The Form of the True Supreme Being is 'Love' and the form of the
      entire creation is also 'Love' and all the activities of this world
      are carried on with the help of the Force of Love. No person can do
      anything without Love and keen interest. It is thus clear that
      without Love no work, either of the world or that pertaining to
      paramartha, can be done successfully. Therefore in all the activities
      of paramartha the Saints have assigned the most important position to
      Love i.e. Devotion.

      3. Everyone. whether man or animal, likes Bhakti and everyone gets
      pleased if devotion is shown to him. Affection and humility are but
      the expressions of Love and Devotion. In other words, wherever there
      is true love, there must necessarily be true humility also. For
      example. if a person loves wealth truly and desires it earnestly, he
      behaves with true humility towards the person from whom he could get
      wealth. In the same manner, a person who has a true desire for some
      particular thing behaves with true love and humility at that time
      towards that person through whom he could attain that thing.

      4. It should be borne in mind that as long as the person, who is
      truly afraid of being entangled in the cycle of births and deaths and
      of Hell and who has, on observing the conditions of this world and
      the transitory nature of all worldly things, developed a sincere
      desire for the attainment of true salvation and the Eternal Region,
      does not develop true love and humility towards the True Supreme
      Being and also towards that person who may tell him the secret of the
      Supreme Being and the Path and the Method to reach Him, he would not
      be able to know the secret of the Supreme Being nor the Path to reach
      Him and would not be able to attain Him.
