To an Indian friend who had to give up a deep personal attachment and was profoundly grieved.
Please accept my deepest sympathy and concern over your sorrow.
Peace and fulfillment are only to be found within, for God is there. However difficult it may be due to agitation of mind and heart, please meditate. Whatever mantra or Name of God you prefer, cling to its japa throughout the day and in meditation. This is your lifeline.
When intensely sad, it is often better to leave the house and walk about for a while. Visit temples and pray. Attend satsangs and participate in them. Do not be alone too much.
This is very simple advice, but I assure you it not only helps, but when followed unbrokenly it can heal and bring peace to the heart.
