The devotee says, "Oh, my Lord, I love you because in loving You, I get pleasure. I want nothing from You. I want to love You because I get pleasure." But this is not the highest form of devotion. In the highest form of devotion, the devotee says, "Oh Lord, I love You. I want to love You. And why do I want to love You? Because I want that my love should give You pleasure. I don't want any pleasure. I love you not to get pleasure, but to give You pleasure." And by means of this type of devotion, the Yogi comes in closest contact with the Supreme Self and becomes one with Him. When one's love is to give pleasure to the Lord and not to enjoy the pleasure for oneself, one's mind gets metamorphosed into the mind of the Lord. By this devotion, the Yogi gets established into the stance of Supreme Beatitude. The person and his God become One.
