See The Mother within your heart, thoughts, Labor for love of Her, Draw others to Her by your example, Create the atmosphere of divine harmony and receptivity that she cannot resist, Then you will have Her form as well in the blessings of Her formless Self. Those who labor thus are the dearest of the dear to The Divine Mother."-Sri Daya Mata
