An Excerpt from the Da Love-Ananda Gita
by The Divine World-Teacher,
True Religion, or Real-God-Yoga, is the practice of linking (or binding, or connecting, or yoking) oneself to Reality Itself (Which Is Truth Itself, and the Only Real God).
True Religion, or Real-God-Yoga, is the practice of consistently (and, Ultimately, Most Perfectly, and, therefore, Permanently) moving out of the disposition, and the presumption, and the very activity of separate and separative self, into the Love-Bliss-Full Condition of Oneness with That Which Is One, Whole, Absolute, All-Inclusive, and Beyond.
Therefore, I Call My devotees to truly surrender themselves in devotional feeling-Contemplation of Me, by surrendering the principal faculties (of body, emotion, mind, and breath) to Memoment to moment, and in all circumstances.
The (moment to moment) surrender of the principal faculties to Me is the Essence of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti Yoga.
Action engaged in the ordinary (or egoic) manner is (necessarily) conditional, and (inevitably) karmic (or ego-bound and ego-binding). Therefore, such ordinary (or egoic) action (necessarily, and inevitably) reinforces limitation and separateness. Because this is so, My devotees must understand that, if they continue to engage in action in the ordinary (or egoic) manner, they will not be truly (and most fully) En-Light-ened and Set Free by virtue of their mere association with Me. My devotees must actually do the counter-egoic Yoga of actively yielding the principal faculties of the body-mind to Me (moment to moment, and under all circumstances), through ego-surrendering, ego-forgetting, and (more and more) ego-transcending feeling-Contemplation of Me.
When they (thus) surrender the principal faculties of the body-mind to Me, My devotees are no longer devoted to action (in and of itself), and to the effects of action (in and of themselves), but they are (instead) truly transcending themselves in the midst of conditions, and they are (thereby) progressively (but entirely without seeking) being purified of the effects of actiononly and entirely through Me-recognizing responsive devotion to Me.
In the midst of daily living, and under all its various circumstances, there are demands on the body, demands on emotion, demands on mind, and demands on the breath. The conditions of existence make changes in all of the principal faculties, moment by moment. I Call My devotee to make Divine Yoga (or Freedom-Bonding) out of each momentby using body, emotion, mind, and breath in ego-surrendering devotional feeling-Contemplation of Me. . . .
True devotion to Me (or the right, true, full, and fully devotional practice of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti Yoga) is the Only Happiness, and the Only Freedom from the steel-hard mechanical and chemical bondage of suffering in which you are (otherwise) investing yourself.
Therefore, Invoke Me, feel Me, breathe Me, and serve Me. Make no room for any thing else. That is what it is to be My true devotee.
