Title: Love
Post by: Hari on March 23, 2012, 02:42:01 PM
Where is the place of love in Advaita? Love is kind of attachment. Reality is sat-chit-ananda. But does love have place in the reality? What does Bhagavan tell about It?

Dear ramana,

For attaining the advaitic experience, one should love the Self.  Desiring or loving the Self is the only desire/love that is
permitted in advaita. But once you realize the Self, then every object, every being in the world would appear as Brahma
Swarupam. Then you can not but love them all. See Sri Aunachala Pancharatnam, Verse 5.

Arunachala Siva.
