Why Love Turns into Hate

Articles by Satyanarayana DasaComments Off on Why Love Turns into Hate

by Satyanarayana Dasa: Does love really turn into hate? Really speaking it does not. Real love never changes into hate or anything else. Krishna says that by deliberation, meditation, or dwelling upon an object one develops attraction or attachment for the object. This attachment leads to desire to possess and enjoy the object. This desire, or kama, is taken or mistaken for love. But it is only a vritti of the mode of passion (rajo guna). The modes are always in flux. This gives rise to different qualities. When one's desire is not fulfilled, anger arises (kamat krodho'bhijayate).

by Satyanarayana Dasa: Long ago, Japan was ruled by King Yamato. He had a minister whose name was Ocho San. Ocho San had a big joint family that was famous for its cordiality and the love among its members. The family had more than a hundred members but they lived together peacefully and had a common kitchen. There was no quarrel among the family members. Anybody who visited the family was received cordially and left impressed by the service and reception by the family members.

    God wants to give us His mercy, but our mind is not free. It is filled with lust, attachments, and greed. Our mind is like a pot in which lust and greed need to be removed so God can fill the pot with his mercy. Either we can have Krishna or we can have maya. We may think that God is doing an injustice by taking away our wealth, but He is actually making space so He can give us something that we can’t even imagine.
