  • (Asking question in foreign language)

  • If one of the basis of the Buddhist religion,

  • is love for Mother Nature.

  • Why isn't this also equally true of romantic love

  • between two people

  • and their demonstration of love for each other.

  • Can someone repeat?

  • Seems to be an interesting question.

  • (Laughter)

  • She asks if Buddhism supports love for Mother Nature,

  • why doesn't it also support romantic love between two people

  • and demonstrations of affection between two people.

  • The Buddha is a picture of love, true love.

  • Love for Mother Earth, should be true love.

  • And if it is true love it can bring a lot of happiness

  • to you and to Mother Earth.

  • And romantic love, if it is true love,

  • it can also bring a lot of happiness.

  • But if it is not true love, it will make you suffer,

  • and make the other suffer as well.

  • In the teaching of the Buddha,

  • true love needs four elements.

  • First of all: Maitri - loving-kindness

  • that is the capacity to offer happiness.

  • If you cannot offer happiness, that is not true love.

  • In romantic love,

  • if you are not able to help the other person to be happy,

  • that is not true love.

  • So you should train yourself in order to be able

  • to offer happiness

  • to you and to him, or to her.

  • Without that, both will suffer.

  • The second element of true love is compassion.

  • Compassion is the kind of energy that can help remove suffering;

  • that can help transform suffering in you and in the other person.

  • If you cannot transform

  • and take care of the suffering in you and the other person

  • that is not true love.

  • That is why "Karuna", the second element of true love,

  • should be cultivated by you and the other person.

  • Romantic and not romantic, that is not important.

  • What is important is whether it is true love,

  • or not true love, right?

  • The third element of true love

  • is Joy.

  • If by loving,

  • you make the other person cry all the time,

  • and you cry all the time,

  • That is not true love. (Laughter)

  • Romantic or not romantic.

  • True love is inclusiveness.

  • You do not exclude,

  • his suffering is your suffering,

  • his happiness is your happiness,

  • There is no individual suffering and happiness anymore.

  • In true love,

  • there is the element of inclusiveness, non-discrimination.

  • There's no separation, no barrier,

  • Between you and the other person.

  • In that spirit you cannot say,

  • "That's your problem!" No.

  • Your problem is my problem

  • My suffering is your suffering.

  • So this is the fourth element of true love.

  • And if romantic love has all these four elements,

  • it can bring a lot of happiness also.

  • The Buddha did not say, never any negative things about true love

  • In romantic love if you are successful.

  • You will cultivate a lot of loving-kindness and compassion.

  • And very soon your love will be all-embracing.

  • The other person is no longer the only object of your love.

  • Because your love will continue to grow.

  • Your love will embrace all of us!

  • And happiness will become limitless.

  • That is the love of the Buddha.

  • That is the meaning of the fourth element

  • of true love: Inclusiveness

  • If it is true love, it will continue to grow,

  • and include more and more. Not only humans...

  • but also animals, vegetables,

  • and minerals.

  • And that is a great love.

  • "Maha Karuna" "Maha Maitri"

  • And that is the love of the Buddha.
