O Lord, you have manifested your love and grace through myriads of ways. I relish the fragrance of your love, enthrall my eyes by the art of your love, enrich my heart by the elixir of your love and ennoble my spirit by the touch of your love in everything you have created so gracefully and painstakingly. But through the love of human heart and human touch I have experienced your bliss and beauty, gaiety and glory the best and most.I understand you have carved the human beings with the lion’s share of your love. For this very reason, we, the mankind, are known as your crown creation. You have made each one of us an ocean of love. I hear your voice that we are here on this earth to share our love with each other, and thereby alleviate the pain of each other and elevate each other to the supreme height of this divine life.
O the Omnipotent Father, though you want us to love each other and live together, I wonder why man has created so many narrow walls with narrow thoughts that make us strangers and alien to each other in spite of the fact that we are brothers and sisters, children of the same Father. Though we are born on different lands and speak different languages, it is the same flame of your love that is burning in all of us.
O the Almighty, as you speak to me on this auspicious day,23 April 2017, that the unconditional and unbiased love for all beings is the surest remedy against all maladies and the surest path to peace, may I beg you to teach us the art of practicing love. For, we want to love! We want to love!
By your grace, I have learned that the greatest nourishment for all beings is the sacred love which you have lavishly and lovingly embedded in us. But why is it so Father! Today the greatest hunger in the world of material abundance is the hunger of love and the greatest starvation is the starvation of love. Bless us Father, to uncover and unfold the hidden mine of our sacred love and guide us to share that nectar with our brothers and sisters everywhere so that we can smile together and illumine the world together.
Nobel laureate Tagore said: While God waits for His temple to be built of love, men bring stone. I beg you Dear Father, bless us that we build our homes less of stones and more of love; and we build our schools less of luxuries and comforts but more of love and compassion. Amen.
