The teaching on love in the Buddhist tradition is very clear, we all need love because love make us happy, if it doesn’t then it is not love.

Love has a lot of meaning, but we had abuse love.

When we say I love hamburger, that love doesn’t mean anything, that just mean I like to eat hamburger, we need to heal the word love or else it will lose its meaning, from time to time we need to cure / heal, make it healthy again. Love is a wonderful thing.

In Buddhist teaching, love is able to bring happiness, to offer happiness, to relief suffering, to offer joy, and to transcend all kind of separation barriers.
