“The soul by nature, constitutionally and eternally, is meant to love. And that is why the world is so mad to express love, to channel this propensity to love someone, somewhere and somehow.” – Radhanath Swami
What kind of songs do most people listen to? What kind of novels do most people read? What kind of cinemas do most people watch? What is the subject of most television series? It’s all about love. People are trying to find some means to find inner satisfaction through expressing this insatiable energy to love.
Krishna explains in Gita that of all types of yogis, of all processes of yoga, the highest is to love. The Srimad Bhagavatam explains that there may be many who achieve impersonal liberation, and there may be millions who attain mystic siddhis, but none can find real peace. Only one who has awakened the propensity to love God within the heart can achieve real peace. So as we come closer to awakening that love, we’re actually making real progress in our life.
