Inspirational excerpts from Rinpoche's vast collection of teachings and books.

Real Love
When there is real love -- real loving concern, or real loving kindness--there is a very pure motivation that leads to very pure action. This stems from a wish to really help the other person with their problems and suffering and from a genuine wish to help them find happiness and well-being. Attachment may look very similar to love, but behind it there is always an expectation of some form of reward or profit for oneself. Because of this expectation, it isn't a very positive quality. Here we are speaking of trying to develop real loving kindness -- real love -- not attachment.
