"A partridge in a pear tree," is a lyric from a well-known English Christmas song. It resonates with the human love for one another and the desires one accumulates at Christmas for receiving gifts. We all know this is not the true meaning of Christmas. Yet, this song does contain an element of truth. We long for love and the beloved to show us that we are loved. As your teacher Sri Swami Vishwananda teaches you; ‘Human love finishes and Divine Love never is complete and it never ends.' So, choose, those of you on the path of Bhakti, to stay ever true to the Eternal Beloved, even as you have human love one for another. Please realize, however, that human love is limited and love for the Beloved is unlimited.
