How can we Love all Simply by Loving God? Radhanath Swami gives an Explanation

Love God, Love All

Love God, Love AllQuestion to Radhanath Swami: How is it that loving God enables us to spontaneously love every living being?

Radhanath Swami: The Gita tells that this is because every living being is a part of God, just as every ray emanating from the sun is part of the sun. When we discover the love of God that is within our own hearts, we see an inseparable part of God in the heart of every living being—male or female; black ,white, red, yellow or brown; Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Jew , Parsee, Jain, or Sikh; Pakistani, Indian, Israeli, or Palestinian. These are all temporary bodily designations that are ever changing. They are like clothes on the body. When we actually understand our own soul and our relationship with the God, we can identify the soul in every living being and see its relationship with God. Then, instead of hatred there is love, there is compassion. And that love is the fundamental greatest need in the world.
