SATHYA SAI BABA Love is the form of Brahman, Brahman is love Divine.
SAINT JOHN 1:1 (as above)
PRAYER OF SAINT FRANCIS Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life. Amen

III - REQUIEM IN VERITATE
DHAMMAPADA 1-6 (translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita) Mind precedes all mental states. Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought. If with an impure mind a person speaks or acts suffering follows him like the wheel that follows the foot of the ox. Mind precedes all mental states. Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought. If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts happiness follows him like his never-departing shadow. "He abused me, he struck me, he overpowered me, he robbed me." Those who harbor such thoughts do not still their hatred. "He abused me, he struck me, he overpowered me, he robbed me." Those who do not harbor such thoughts still their hatred. Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is a law eternal. There are those who do not realize that one day we all must die. But those who do realize this settle their quarrels. sotsavah"sampravrt"to gop#-man"d"ala-man"di"tah" yoge$varen"a kr"s"n"ena t!s!m%madhye dvayor dvayoh" pravist""ena gr"h#t!n!m%
KRISHNA DANCE The festive r!sa dance commenced, with the gop#s arrayed in a circle. Lord Kr"s"n"a expanded Himself and entered between each pair of gop#s, and as that master of mystic power placed His arms around their necks, each girl thought He was standing next to her alone. The demigods and their wives were overwhelmed with eagerness to witness the r!sa dance, and they soon crowded the sky with their hundreds of celestial airplanes.

NOTES KYRIE ELEISON The Meaning of Kyrie Eleison by Anthony M. Coniaris The word mercy in English is the translation of the Greek word eleos. This word has the same ultimate root as the old Greek word for oil, or more precisely, olive oil; a substance which was used extensively as a soothing agent for bruises and minor wounds. The oil was poured onto the wound and gently massaged in, thus soothing, comforting and making whole the injured part. The Hebrew word which is also translated as eleos and mercy is hesed, and means steadfast love. The Greek words for ‘Lord, have mercy,’ are ‘Kyrie, eleison’ that is to say, ‘Lord, soothe me, comfort me, take away my pain, show me your steadfast love.’ Thus mercy does not refer so much to justice or acquittal a very Western interpretation but to the infinite loving-kindness of God, and his compassion for his suffering children! It is in this sense that we pray ‘Lord, have mercy,’ with great frequency throughout the Divine Liturgy. http://chantrant.wordpress.com/2007/08/09/the-meaning-of-kyrie-eleison-f...
