Aphorisms on Love


I shall love the whole world,
But I shall control
Only myself.

I must love God more and more
Instead of imagining how much love
God has for me.

To love God,
Unconditionally and self-givingly,
Is a golden lifetime-opportunity.

My Lord,
Do teach me only one thing:
How to love the world
The way You love me.


One word that wakes
All humanity:
Love, love, love!


God the Compassion teaches us
How to love the world


How do I love humanity?
I love humanity through
My soul’s inner happiness.


My Lord, I love You.
Love means self-giving.
How is it that I hesitate to give You
All that I have and all that I am?

– Sri Chinmoy
