About The Book

"Love is not an emotion, it is your very existence. When you love someone. You don't judge them. You always want them. Love is the phenomenon of total letting go.

Love is a path of joy; a path of singing and dancing. It is a valley of flowers. The peak of love is silence, contentment, a state of complete fulfillment and deep meditation.

Love is the strongest force in this universe. Love is the only thing that you cannot think about , if you think, it ceases to be love; when thinking stops, love begins. Love is beyond sight, touches, smell, taste, and sound.

In the book 'Love is not an Emotion', Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has given an completely different perpective on this phenonmenon known as –Love. His words have given Love a whole new meaning and depth. Love is not an emotion, not a feeling, not the sudden quickening of the heart on seeing the loved one, not something we fail in and out of, and yet it is all of this and much much more. The book explores Love like never before – right from its origins to its forms to our thirst for it, our response to it, and more.

Introduction

We are made up of a substance called love. Just as the body is made up of amino acids, etc,the spirit is made up of love. Yet we have done very little to understand this. Everyone wants to love, and be loved, but we have not attended to the inner of core of love. The power of love is very deep. It can heal spiritually, physically and emotionally.

Our first experience was of pain.

A baby cries because of this pain. During the first few days, it makes funny faces and gesture. Because it did such a great job of coming out, into the world, it was like moving a mountain.

After undergoing the pain of birth, it looks at its mother's face, and sees tremendous love on her face. Then, it realizes that it itselfis love, and there is nothing but love.

But by the age of three it begans to forget all this. This is when the intellect begins to form. Then, it starts asking so many questions, in most of the time, it does not even listen to the answers.

Man always looks for foraway things. He seems to be completely unaware of that which is obvious, that which is close.

You are the closest to your Self and that is why you go on missing yourself. There is no way to take away from yourself. Wherever you may be, you cannot be separated from yourself. Hence, you cannot, say, "My beautiful being.."

You have to learn the art of entering into yourself. You will have to be more subjective than objective. Subjectively is the essence of mysticism. You will have to look inwards. That is meditation. It is looking inwards and reaching the point of your very life source. Once you have touched your very life source, there will be no boredom, and your life will be a constant celebration. Otherwise,boredam will be your destiny.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
