Look at me with undivided attention


Look at me with undivided attention; so will I look at you. This is the only truth that my guru had taught me.

Look at Me wholeheartedly



Look at Me wholeheartedly, and I in turn look at you sincerely. He who loves Me most always sees Me. I am dependent on him who thinks and hungers after Me and who does not eat anything without first offering it to Me.
