Radhanath Swami on To Love and Be Loved

The Srimad Bhagavatam (a Vedic Text) explains that the supreme occupation for all humanity is loving service to the Supreme. Such love must me unconditional and unmotivated to completely satisfy the self. Every living being is looking for, longing for, and searching for one thing in every aspect of their life - pleasure. There’s pleasure for the senses and there’s pleasure for the mind, but there’s only one thing that can give pleasure to the heart - the sitting place of the self or soul. And that one thing is love - to love and to be loved.

  3. Rightly said by Radhanath Swami. Loving exchanges are present in all the living entities including animals because that's the part of our constitutional position.

  6. No amount of wealth, property, prestige, fame, strength can bring happiness unless one is loved and has someone to love. And the supreme lover and the beloved is none other than our original father - GOD.

    We see how the whole world is in a state of turmoil mainly because of this reason that Radhanath Swami mentions here - people are not getting true love. Everyone is looking for real unconditional love, but in the wrong places.
