We dream of being accepted and loved wherever we go. But what kind of love are we looking for? Someone to talk to, someone to value our intelligence, someone to look at us with desire, someone we can take care of, or all of the above? We crave long-lasting affection all the time, but in our pursuits we stumble again and again without knowing the deeper causes of why things don’t work as we wish.
In the 2nd century CE, the classical author Nagarjuna had a deep understanding of the workings of the world, and expressed them in his timeless work Wisdom, still studied today. We can use his unique understandings in many ways, even to find love.
Geshe Michael Roach’s presentation, based on this ancient book, shows us how to create a world where we can give and receive more affection with everyone. Ultimately, love serves a purpose beyond our own close relationships. It can spread compassion and understanding to the people we meet, and reach out to our entire world.
You don’t have to wait. Take wise action to have that special love whenever you want it, and help that dream come true for all.
