Five Arrows of Love

The God of Love in the Indian mythology is called apanga. Apanga means ‘one who has no parts of the body at all’. It is so because love has no parts, no shape, and no form. It is formless. He has a bow and five arrows. These five arrows are made up of five flowers – the five senses. He hits you with the five flowers and it is through these five senses that you experience something that is beyond the five senses. What gets created is a wave of beauty deep inside you. It produces a sweet honey inside you!

And when you experience such a wave, your eyes close, you’re not in form but you dissolve into the formless. You come back to your nature. When you experience something so great, so wonderful, and so beautiful be it music, a fragrance or touch automatically your eyes shut and you sink into that ocean of beauty. The power, the energy inside you starts moving in a new direction.

Like in the spring, the entire creation just springs up. The birds sing, trees blossom. Like that when energy is kindled in you, it creates awe. You spring out of dullness, out of the inertia, out of the routine. New life springs up.


There is no real joy to be found in this material world. The more you go searching for joy in the world, the more misery you find.


Q: Guruji, Please speak about compassion.

Guruji : In life there are three things which are essential:
1. Passion
2. Dispassion, and
3. Compassion

Passion is like breathing in, and Dispassion is like breathing out. No one can say, ‘I want to only breathe in, I don’t want to breathe out.’ Impossible! So breathing in is essential, and that is Passion, for things in life. Then, there is also a need for Dispassion. Dispassion means the ability to just let go of everything. Dispassion brings you relief and then Compassion becomes your nature. So you must have Passion when you do work, Dispassion when you want to rest, and Compassion as your very nature. 


Heart should be soft, intellect should be sharp & mind should be pleasant. Never lose these three.
