And what is the divine mystery of love of a disciple for his Master? It is one of the mist absorbing themes of discipleship. It is something without a parallel in the ordinary walks of life. What is it? How can it be explained? What is the mystery of the holy bond which makes men and women even in the hours of death utterly forget all earthly ties and cling to the Master alone? Fortunately, this is one theme upon which this disciple can speak from experience, although he is well aware, perhaps because of that experience itself, that he can never give adequate expression to this theme. Since coming to India, this disciple has been blessed with the daily companionship of many disciples whose devotion to the Master has written one of the most beautiful pages in the story of his life.
The Divine Mystery of Love
Not only these, but the abiding devotion of the Master himself to his Master adds interest to the theme and crowns the relation itself with underlying glory. It is a sacred bond that once formed, is never broken and its divine fragrance never diminishes through unnumbered years. But like other features of this holy path, the essence of it cannot be written down in words. It cannot be described in human language. To be understood, it must be experienced.
