Miracle of Love

I wanted to share this, I have just begun reading it, but even just the introduction has the flavour of a real work of devotion. Wonderful that it is now freely available over the internet. It is a book of stories about the Indian guru Neem Karoli Baba, who seemed to have the ability to inspire boundless love and was the guru of Ram Dass.

For me this is a special book, because it teaches you to live in a spiritual way. It makes clear the spiritual value of food and feeding people, it shows the meaning of food given by a guru, it shows childlike joy, it shows playfulness. If you want to know what the Indian tradition of spirituality through love and devotion (Bhakti) is like, this book is the clearest example I have found.

“In 1967 I met my guru. That meeting changed the course of my life, for through him I came to perceive my life in spiritual terms. In him I found new depths of compassion, love, wisdom, humour and power, and his actions stretched my understanding of the human possibility. I recognised in him an alliance of the human and the divine.”
— Ram Dass, ‘Miracle of Love’

Later on in the intro Ram Dass talks about the availability of his guru even after he left his body, through the stories and anecdotes that people collected about him.

    Anyone who exudes quality attributes without seeming effort gets my vote/veto or other die-votion. People are attracted by the stories but stay for the blessing ...
