~Unconditional Love~

Unconditional love is a term that describes a selfless, higher form of love than romantic love. In Indian and yoga philosophy, this type of love is considered the highest form of devotion, or bhakti.

In Sanskrit, there are five words that translate as “love.” Prem is typically that word used to describe unconditional love, and atma-prem describes unconditional love of the inner or higher Self. This unconditional love requires nothing in return, leading instead to total surrender and devotion.
