Teachings of Love in the old Scriptures
We can find teachings concerning love in the scriptures of all the religions, according to the customs and circumstances prevailing at that time. Muslim Saints mentioned love profusely in their books. In the sayings of Christ there is also particular emphasis on love. In the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Shastras we also find teachings about the path of devotion.
The Path of Love or Devotion is, however, achieved only through the Grace of the Lord.
The Upanishads lay great stress on self-surrender to the Will of the Lord. Teachings concerning the path of love have also been described in the Adi Granth and by many Saints, such as Tulsi Sahib, Swami Ji, Dadu Sahib, Paltu Sahib and others, in a unique manner. It teaches the doctrine of „oneness“ while leading a life of love as a householder in this world. (Being in the world yet out of it.)
