Know that what appears to be Love for an ‘other’ is really Love of Self because ‘other’ doesn’t exist. So this innermost Love can be given to no ‘other’. Love of friends is for the sake of Self, not for body to body. True love has no Lover or Beloved because all Love is Love of Self.
"You are the original lamp.Other incarnations may possess the same candle power as the original llamp but the original lamp is the beginning of all light" Lord Brahma, in "Prayers Offered by Lord Brahma to Lord Krsna," KRSNA BOOK, p.104
Yashoda feeds Bal Krsna. Within bhaktimarg we become greater than god in the sense we bind him with our love, we become the care takers for god, we feed him and nurture the Lord in His childlike form. Birajo hari, jamajo laalji thaal.
