Answer: There are certain things that have no beginning. We have the experience that things in this material world have a beginning and an end, therefore we always think in terms of relationship between them. There are also certain things which are causeless, but unfortunately our mind can’t grasp that. The mind always thinks in terms of cause, but if there is no cause there is also no beginning. Anything without beginning is also causeless, and anything which has a cause also has a beginning. This conditioned state of consciousness exists without any beginning. This is beyond the mind’s ability to grasp. Therefore in order to understand it we have to transcend the mind. In our present situation we can only accept it.
A pure devotee has an aura that subdues others, like the sun subdues the stars. All of God’s qualities manifest in such a person. The devas are pleased with him, so they associate with him because it is very rare to see a pure devotee. The rarest of rare. Even Bhagavan becomes captured in the heart of such a person. This is the greatness of a devotee. This is the power of love.
