Dadashri: What is the definition of love?
Questioner: I do not know, Dada. Please explain
it to me.
Dadashri: I too was looking for the definition
of love when I was young! I wondered about the nature of love.
People keep talking about love all the time. What could it be? So
then I read all kinds of books and scriptures but did not find the
definition of love anywhere. I was astonished that no scripture has
defined love. It wasn't until I read a book of Kabir that I was
satisfied. He is the one who defined love. His definition helped
me. It says:
'That which increases one moment and decreases
the next, is not love: That which resides in the heart and remains
the same, is real love.'
I found this to be a beautiful definition. 'Bravo! Kabir Sahib,
I must say!' This is the truest love of all. That, which never
increases or decreases, is love.
Questioner: So what is called real love?
Dadashri: Real love never increases or
decreases. The Gnani's love is such a love; it does not
increase or decrease. I have that kind of love for the whole world.
That love is the Absolute Self.
Questioner: Still there must be love somewhere
in this world?
Dadashri: There is no love anywhere. There is no such thing as love in this world. It
is all infatuations and attractions. You will realize this
right away when someone you love says something negative about
If your brother returns home today after being away for a long
time, you love to be around him all the time. You will eat together
and go out with him. But if the next day he tells you that you are
behaving like a person without any sense, this would be the end of
your love. If you were to say the same thing to a Gnani Purush
several times over, he would not be affected. His love for you
would remain the same.
Real love is that which does not have
any abhorrence behind it. How can it be called love when
there is abhorrence associated with it? Love should be unwavering, unchanging.
