Is it Love or Attachment? A Buddhist Perspective on Relationships


Course description

If we wish to enjoy good relationships, it is essential that we learn to distinguish between love and attachment. Pure love is a beautiful state of mind and never causes any pain. It fills our heart with happiness and brings joy to our family and friends. It costs nothing, yet is the most powerful method to improve the world we live in. However, our love is often mixed with attachment, which makes us possessive, anxious and easily hurt.

Why is it that so often our relationships and interactions with others result in a storm of painful emotions? Why do we feel so much grief when we are separated from those we care for? And why does what appears to be a “perfect match” so often end in conflict? The answer to all these questions is uncontrolled desire and attachment. While love brings good results and happiness, attachment brings problems and suffering such as craving, jealousy, dependence and conflict.

In this course we will learn how to distinguish between the minds of attachment and love and how to practically free ourselves from attachment while cultivating pure love for others.
