|| < : WHAT IS TRUE LOVE ? : > ||
What is ordinarily called " love " is not Prema , True Love , but moha , attraction through delusion .
Prema , REAL LOVE , cannot exist between individuals .
How can one get PURE LOVE from that , which by its very nature is impure , namely the individual ?
Again and again it happens that people come to this body saying ,
" My love for such and such a person is true love , not worldly love . "
They are deceiving themselves .
Love for that which is mortal is invariably moha , attraction through delusion , and leads to death .
Quite obviously so .
Have you not noticed how , when you find it impossible to get the object of your love you either wish to kill it or to die yourself ?
Whereas Prema , THE LOVE OF GOD , takes you to the death of death , to IMMORTALITY .
