What Is Love?

“I separated Myself from Myself, so that I may love Myself”, proclaims the Lord. Love is the primordial urge and the basis of creation. Love is God. This love assumes many different forms in the phenomenal world and gives a variety of experiences to individuals. While the forms of love keep changing based on one’s relationship, the Principle of Love remains unchanged. Swami enumerates the different forms of love that human beings experience and He delineates how human love differs from Divine Love. Human love is temporary and is based on attachment and affection. Divine Love is pure, selfless and enduring. Swami tells us that true bhakti (devotion) is love for God. We must cultivate such love and become embodiments of pure love.

How can we cultivate such love and become embodiments of pure love?
