What is Love?

Srila Prabhupada had a wonderful way of distinguishing materialist love from spiritual love. He had a way of saying it that made you feel greater love for all beings, including your own near and dear ones. In a New York lecture in November of 1966 on the Caitanya Caritamrita (Madhya-lila 20, verses 124-125) he said, “If you love God, then you can love everyone….And if you don’t love God, then you can’t love anyone.”
