Do you know what love is? We all say that we love our parents
and siblings - but how long does that last for? What happens when
mum does not make you your favourite meal? When dad does not buy
you the game that you want? When your little brother misplaces your
favourite pen? When your sister gets the book that you really want
Should our love last only until our wishes and demands are
fulfilled? Can this be called love? Let us understanding the
meaning of true love…
Dadaji has defined real love as that which does not increase or
decrease. Love associated with expectation cannot be called real
Ways in which you can ensure real love are:
• Love should remain the same for each and every person in this
world - it should be constant. The flow of love remains the same
for the person who insults you very badly and for the person who
• Do not see faults in others.
• Do not have expectations e.g. you heard that your close friend
is having a party, but then you are not invited so you stop
speaking with your friend.
• Do not be selfish - share what you have with others.
• Do not discriminate - have a feeling of 'yours - mine'.
A young boy asks his older sister, "Didi, what is love?" She
answers, "Everyday you take the chocolate from my bag without
asking me. I know this and yet, everyday I make sure that there is
some chocolate in my bag. This is love."
To develop real love, ask for forgiveness for all your mistakes.
When you see faults in others, remind yourself that the other
person is not at fault - I saw the mistake, so it is my fault. This
way differences will not arise, and you will be able to become an
embodiment of real love (prem swaroop).
