It seems like we live in a world where genuine love is an endangered species. What most understand as love, is temporary, or at best lasts a lifetime, no more.
Even amongst those who seek love, seek to give love, often it is very mysterious how this love can be manifested in ever-more increasing ways.
Rupa Goswami, the 16th century Bhakti saint and scholar, among his thousands of works, produced a tiny compilation of verses called Upadeshamrita, or the Nectar of Instruction. In this book, he talks about many wonderful concepts, but one key is love, how love is manifested.
