Prema (Love) is like a most precious diamond. Love is alien to persons who are selfish, conceited or ostentatious. Where then is this love to be found? This precious diamond can only be got in the kingdom of Love, in the street of Love, in the shop of Love. It can be obtained only through a loving heart. It may be asked, "Is not the whole world permeated with Love? Then why is not Love readily available?" The love with which the world is considered to be filled with is not real love. Love cannot be associated with the body, the senses, the mind and the intellect. Anything associated with these is only attachment (Anuraga). Spiritual (Atmic) life alone is a Love-filled life. Therefore, lead a spiritual life, not a life bound by body, mind, senses and intellect. A life related to the body, the senses, the mind and the intellect can never be free from selfishness, conceit and ostentation. (Divine Discourse, Aug 21, 1992)
