Everyone is looking for unconditional love
This is one of the stories in our Story-Gems project, a collection of our experiences with our Guru, Sri Chinmoy. Project homepage »
Guru asked Nayak to tell him who were the new disciples from Seattle. Then he meditated on us. Each of us would raise our hand, and then Guru would look at that person and smile.
When Guru smiled at me, I was just... you cannot imagine what it feels like to have... it's like the sun is looking at you with unconditional love. I was so overwhelmed. I kind of looked at the floor because I did not know how to accept all that love. Then I looked up and Guru was still smiling at me.
Guru at one point said that everyone is looking for unconditional love. Every seeker is looking for unconditional love. Guru showed me so much affection over the years.
If I Accept My Supreme Lord
If I accept my Supreme Lord
Supremely and unconditionally,
Then only will I be able to read
What He has inscribed
On the golden tablet of my heart:
That He loves me unconditionally.
