You are mine and I am yours!

Standard

Whatever relationship you accept with Bhagwaan, God too is prepared
and willing to accept the same relationship. Whatever sentiments
easily and simply come to you, those sentiments itself you should
accept. In the Vinaya Partikaa (letter of courtesy), Tulasidasji
says –

Tu dayaalu deen haun, Tu daani mein bhikaari
Haun prasiddh paatikee, Tu paap – punjahaari
Naath Tu anaath ko, anaath kaun moso
Mo samaan aarat nahin, aaratihar toso”

“O Lord,
If You are merciful, I am forlorn; if You are charitable, I am a
beggar;
If You are destroyer of the heaps of sins, I am a great sinner;
If You are the Father of orphans, I am an orphan and
If You are the remover of distress, I am distress.”

Tohin mohi naate anek, maaniye jo bhaavai
Jyon-jyon Tulasi kripaalu ! charan-saran paavai.

“O gracious, accept any relationship which you like. Change your
sentiments towards Bhagwaan (God). Consider Bhagwaan to be Bhagwaan,
or if you like accept Him as your beloved. Whatever sentiments
appear to be sweet, accept the same sentiments with him.

Question: Can I accept God as my mother, because I like that
relationship ?
Answer: Yes, you can call Paramatma, mother. There is no
distinction of male or female in Paramatma. In Prabodha-Sudhaakara,
Sri Sankaracaryaji Maharaja, the annotator of Vedanta has called Lord
Krsna as mother. So call Paramatma mother, if that invokes a special
sentiment and love. If your mind remains engaged then call Bhagwaan
mother, or father, or brother, whatever name appears sweet, whatever
relationship appears sweet.

Your mind may be diverted so long as you have not accepted your
relationship with Him. But once you fix the relationship in your
mind, your mind will not be diverted from Him. For example when you
talk about the selection of a husband for your daughter, she listens
to the conversation regarding various boys, but once it is decided
who is her life partner, once the relationship is fixed, she will
only pay close attention, when the conversation is about her future
husband, not about the other boys. Similarly if you decide your
relationship with God and have your only aim to attain Him, you will
develop a great liking, a fondness for Him, and then your mind will
not be diverted.

“Hamey kyaa kaam duniyaa se, hamey Sri Krsna pyaare hai
Yashodaa nand ke nandan mere aankhon ke taare hai.”

Then without caring for the worldly relationship, Lord Krsna will
become the apple of your eye. You will develop the feeling “Only God
is mine, and I am only His.”
