Love Never Ends

July 1st, 2020 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

My understanding of love may not match with anyone. Love grows from trust, empathy, and caring. Love life can be invaluable if anyone knows the value of love. What we are mistaken with Love is Attachment.
Attachment is a powerful weapon of binding. The first attachment begins with the physical body. Then all the attachments crop up. Attachment grows when there is pleasure. Whenever there is attachment, there is infatuation and fear. Fear of losing. Attachment brings misery.
Love brings contentment as love is bliss. Actually, love is freedom.
Parvati lives with her husband Shiva. Shiva takes care of her.
Once Shiva told her, ”I want you in my next birth but I want a bride who never tells me any harsh word. The girl will give me the food that I love. The girl will not bother anyone but only for me”.
Parvati smilingly answered, ” That means you are very much attached to her.”
Every day, Shiva repeated the same thing. He said, “I love you a lot Parvati”.

Parvati said,” Love comes from within. You cannot measure it. You cannot see it, you can feel it. There is no dependency on love. There are no arguments in love.”
One day, Parvati had some puja at home. She wore a red saree, gajra in her hair. There were some ladies in the house including her daughter. She asked everyone to take prasad. A few minutes later after Puja, when she prostrated in the puja room near an Idol of Krishna, she collapsed. Her daughter thought Parvati must not have had anything in the morning. She was quite pious. She called her,” Maa!Maa!”
When she couldn’t open her eyes, Shiva came running. He said, “Parvati, this is not fair. We have promised to go to abode together. We did everything together, you assure me that we will roam in paradise together. Why did you lie to me?  Why did you not wait for me?” By saying this much, Shiva became unconscious and after a week, he passed away peacefully.
I think this is Love.
