Everything is suffused with love. So we can unhesitatingly declare that the Supreme Lord is the embodiment of love. In the entire creation, in all living things, love manifests itself in various forms. Though it is known under different names like love for offspring, affec¬tion, devotion to God, desire (vatsalya, anuraga, bhakti, ishtam) etc., according to the direction in which it is canalised, the nature of love does not change. Whatever be the form, the essence of love is unaltered. Based on this knowledge and experience, you must clearly conclude that the supreme Lord is the inner Atma of all created things (Sarva-bhootha-antar-atma). That which teaches the highest knowledge of this unity is known as nondualism (advaita); that which teaches the principle of the lover and the Loved, the individual (jiva) and the Brahman, is known as dualism (dvaita); that which teaches about all three - love, lover, and loved - or the nature (prakriti), jiva, and Brahman, is known as qualified nondualism (vishishta-advaita). But these three are one. (Prema Vahini, Ch 38)
