From beyond the veil of darkness,
You Yourself came into my life.
Heedless of my merits and faults,
You loved me.
You showered Your love on me.

Into my small mind,
You infused desires.
In small ideas,
You have kept me attached.

You who are so vast,
You have taught me how to make You my own.
You have showered Your love on me.

By thinking of You,
By remembering You always,
You have taught me how to know myself,
You have showered Your love on me.


Purport:
One can have a rough idea, a microscopic idea of God only when Paramapurus'a (the Supreme
Consciousness) desires it. Without His desire, nothing can be done. Even a blade of grass
cannot move without His support, without His order. You came from beyond the veil of
darkness, and You loved me without caring for my qualifications and disqualifications.
This is nothing but Your mercy, and that is why I say that You are mine. And You have
taught me how to know You. You know, everything is the object of Paramapurus'a:
Paramapurus'a is the Supreme Subject, the Supreme Subjectivity. He cannot be the object,
for He sees everything. He is the subject, and the entire universe is the object; but
Paramapurus'a Himself teaches the microcosms, the human beings, to make Him their object.
That is, during sa'dhana, the sa'dhaka becomes the subject and Paramapurus'a becomes the
object. Such a vast entity cannot be the object He is the subject but He Himself has
taught that during sa'dhana (spiritual practice), "You should accept Me as your object."
And He has further taught that "If you know Me, you will know yourself also."
