Part 1 Article 61
                                                        Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Mahaswamiji (20 May 1894 – 8 January 1994)

              Translation by Veeraswamy Krishnaraj From Deivathin Kural

                                                                  The original Tamil Text:

We can classify love into three categories: 1) Love of nobility, 2) Love of family and friends and 3) Mercantile love. Love of nobility: Because of their virtue, giving, self-sacrifices…, we love Mahans, honest people, truthtellers, philanthropists, Jñāṉis, paragons of power… The next one is love of family, friends, relatives, acquaintances… The third one is mercantile love: Love of people with whom we do business and make profit. We love our employers for giving us the salary.
These three kinds of love are not in truth love. This love is not perpetual. When the employer dismisses the employee (you), your love for the employer evaporates. When the recipient of your love moves far away, dies, or loses a connection with you, love dissipates. The tears and the turmoil precipitated by separation from your love are forgotten later somehow. True love keeps the crying go for ever. The love shown to the Mahans is not permanent. If his lofty quality dissipates and is perceived as diminishing, our love for him diminishes.
These three loves have causes and so there is no permanence. We extend love to the great parsonages because of their character. We love them because we believe they will rescue us from evil or save our soul.
Unconditional love is true love. Though the person we love is not close to us, does not possess spiritual qualities, and has no power to do us any favor, our changeless love to that person is true love.
Does anyone have a causeless love? Only one has it. God is the only one with changeless and causeless love. (My input not in the original text. God's Love: When love is elevated to a divine valence, it is Apotheosis of Love.)
There is no reason for God to love us. If he looks for a reason to love us, he won’t feed us even once. Tolerating all our mistakes, keeping us under his protection, and showering us with three kinds of love, he is the love-suffused Paramesvara. The thread of love from the Supreme Siva runs through the three kinds of love, mentioned earlier.
We should emulate and practice that causeless love of the Supreme Siva. Why do we look for a misdeed or a cause to hate someone? We do misdeeds. Do we reject ourselves? We don’t. We should react in like manner to others. We should have love for the great people. We should have universal love for all beings.
“He does misdeeds just like I do. His mind is the instigator. Let me try to make his mind sattvic. That should be our thoughts.” Those who by grace of God Isvara have the power to extend favor to the sinner, must come forward to free him from his sins.

Initially if we habituate ourselves to extend pure causeless love to a person, it makes us the inexhaustible repository of love and helps us spread love to all. It is the injunction of the elders that we extend complete unreserved love to our Guru without expectation of anything in return or pretense. Indulge in the ecstasy of spreading causeless love to the whole world thinking it as Guru. If you flood the whole world with love, that is ecstasy, supreme fulfilment, and supreme peace.  (Inundation of love dissolves all differences.)
