Dear Deepak,

I will answer your question, as though you were asking about the love one finds on the spiritual path, as a devotee.

The love I feel on this path of Paramhansa Yogananda, is a calm, clear and deep joy. A joy that I want to share with everyone; a joy that encompasses all; and a joy that is not afraid or defensive.

This joy emanates from Paramhansa Yogananda and his teachings. By asking for his love to flow through me, I can feel this joy most of the time. How can this be a problem?

Joy to you,
