"You could exist and not know about it. You could exist and know about it, but you might not love it. But you cannot love without existing and knowing that you exist. So the loving moment of the Absolute is the full moment. And being, (existing) and knowing is a derivative of that, by necessity. If the Absolute is loving, if Brahman is ananda, if the absolute is anandam, then it has to exist and it has to know and these are derivative of its nature as a lover. Bhakti, that discipline for killing the material ego, is not only concerned with killing that ego but it wants to move beyond 'I am' and 'I know and I know that I exist', to 'I exist to love'."
