    Translated by Archana Penukonda
    Sri Guru Datta.
    We have learned that we have to take numerous births to qualify to attain that one moment of Supreme Bliss. We have understood that Supreme Bliss, that one moment of Realization during Samadhi, is very difficult to obtain. We have to take births over and over again. That state can be achieved only by the grace of Guru when we follow the path shown by Him. One should patiently continue the spiritual practice while eagerly looking forward to that moment of bliss. That profound state of ultimate bliss is described in the next 3 slokas.

    Na tat sukham surendrasya na sukham cakravartinam |
    Yat sukham vitaragasya sada santushta cetasah ||

    One who is dispassionate and ever contented, enjoys far greater happiness than even Devendra (Indra, the king of Gods), and far greater bliss than any emperor ever. That level of bliss experienced in that state, even Devendra may never experience. Even emperors may never experience it.

    A lot of people engaged in family life think that meditating on the Absolute is not for them. They think that such discipline is impossible for them to practice. “Why should we bother? We cannot do all that”, they simply dismiss.
    Instead, the person who asserts, “O Lord, it is by your command that I am living this worldly life, and experiencing this illusion,” who leads his life focused on liberation, who is constantly contemplating on the Absolute, who is fully detached while living in this samsara (worldly life/family life), will certainly experience that bliss that even Devendra is denied. You all must experience that bliss for yourselves.

    You are all thinking that you are pining for God. But there is not much truth in it. In reality, it is God, who is pining for you much more intensely. You mistakenly imagine that you are working very hard in seeking God. But, God is yearning for you as intensely or even more passionately. Can you even express in words the happiness you would feel when your little son who was lost for 20 years, finally returns to you? When something that you either gave up as spoilt, or thought had fallen off, or you had forgotten about it, having kept it in a faraway inaccessible place where no one can reach it, is suddenly found intact, how thrilled you would feel?

    Similarly, when children born of Him, who had forgotten Him and became distanced from Him, come back to unite with Him, can you even imagine the joy that God feels? That His children are coming back to join Him, through performing spiritual practices, through doing penance, through practicing Yoga, through devotional worship, through attaining spiritual knowledge, or through engaging selfless service, how immensely happy the Almighty feels! Can you even imagine?

    Do we not experience inexpressible happiness during meditation, when we experience merging back with our real Father, the Parabrahman; when we go back to our source! When such total absorption occurs during meditation, we feel absolutely elated. We feel like meditating more and more every day, because we have now tasted the sweetness of it; we have found out the right way; we have recognized the means of achieving that bliss.

    When you have experienced such untold joy, then, you can easily imagine the intensity of joy that God feels when He exclaims, “Finally, you have come back to me! When did you come? “ His thrill is indescribable.

    Just to remove your ignorance, to have you merge back in Him, the Almighty comes down in various incarnations. He Himself has created this illusory world. But He never thought that you would get drowned in this ignorance. You’ve been languishing in this delusion for so many years, so many lifetimes. God feels very sorry. “I had created all this for you so that you can come back to me. I have shown different paths for you to get rid of your ignorance. But you have forgotten me. You have ignored the existence of true knowledge. You have forgotten your true nature, and have begun to revel in ignorance, believing that these enjoyments are far more attractive. I myself come for you personally. I send many great souls to help you. I put in such great effort for your sake,” declares the Almighty.
