Couples that are Gift to the World.

Generous Love.

'Generous love, the glue that holds everything together in a healthy relationship, aims for shared happiness through the fulfillment of one's partner. From the great moments of their lives, many remember that the experiences of sharing love are much more honest and convincing than anything one could do for oneself. The joyful rush of living the highest principle of oneness and being there for everyone brings pervasive meaning and a sense of liberation, as if one has just broken out of prison. Most of the time, attraction is the dominating element at the beginning of a love affair. This continues on in good relationships because one simply gains pleasure by giving joy. But if permanence and a well-rounded development are to unfold, there must also exist a genuine respect and trust in the partner. This can be seen in all experienced couples.

Those who have a surplus of inner values are not only more prone to have pleasant experiences, but are also more convincing when they pass them on to others. Couples who are like this are gift to the world. When both partners share joy, then new levels of meaning open up. And so a healthy foundation to work from - created through conscious and friendly thought, words, and actions - is highly precious. In a long-term relationship, the joy that is based in such a foundation steadily increases. Bursting the limits of an "I-You" dynamic, it radiates outward for the benefit of all.

-- Quoted from 'Buddha & Love' book by Lama Ole Nydahl.

Two kinds of love.

Conditioned love expects, hopes, fears, and wants to "get" rather than give. Thus, disturbing emotions arise and one gets increasingly poorer on the inner level.

Giving/Unconditional love realizes how much beings struggle with their inner & outer worlds - that they do, say, and think things which make them unable to find lasting happiness. Consequently one begins to give, without thinking of one's own advantage.'

-- Quoted from 'Buddha & Love' book by Lama Ole Nydahl.

About Buddha Karmapa 17th's marriage with Rinchen Yangzom.

Recently, Buddha Karmapa 17th followed the example of his 15th incarnation as Kakhyab Dorje, who and chose the inspiration of a fine wisdom partner to be at his side.

i don't have proper words for this, i can't express how great news this is for the whole World - so i only quote Lama Ole Nydahl, the author of 'Buddha & Love' book.

'In the situation we live in there is probably no more useful and uplifting way to benefit societies and lay people everywhere than the blazing example of a couple activating the great dimensions of a perfect and happy family.

May wonderful events follow this fusing of two great hearts and may there be meaningful, new and gladdening insights appearing in a modern world, which make so many aspects of mind’s potential possible'.


May all beings have happines and causes of happiness,

May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering,

May they always experience true happiness, which is totally free from suffering,

May they remain in the great equanimity, which is beyond attachment and aversion.




Namaste, blessed be.
