Whom should I tell the innermost thoughts of my heart?

"After some more time, Bhattaji returned from the temple with my letter, having touched it to the lotus feet of Shri Narayan. He also brought me some Tulasi leaves and sandalwood paste that had been offered to these holy feet. I ate the Tulasi and smeared the sandalwood paste on my head. There is no doubt that the omniscient Shri Hari knew the inner meaning of my letter. Knowing my crazy effort, it is true that the world will laugh, but will Lord Hari scoff at me? And even if He does scoff, except Him, whom should I tell the innermost thoughts of my heart?" ("On the Way to Vaikuntha", p. 271-272)

Pranam to Swami Bon

"I make my obeisances with deep and loving devotion for ever and ever to my Gurudev, who is known by the name of Srimad Bhakti Hriday Bon, who being attracted by the lotus-feet of Radha-Madhab is for ever and ever immersed in the perennial stream of supramundane joy emanating therefrom.

I bow down again and again with loving devotion to my Gurudev who is a wandering Tridandi mendicant and erudite Vaishnava (who) is always following in the wake of Sri Rupa; I make my obeisances in all humility, at all times with sincere loving devotion to my Gurudev who resides happily in the
Kunja (bower) allotted to him by Shrimati Radhika, the dearest Divine Consort of the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna who is Rasa epitomized, who has taken to the way of Bhakti in consonace with the teachings of Sri Chaitanya - nay, whose whole pattern of life is moulded on the teachings and precepts of Sri Chaitanya."
