Achieving Affectionate Detachment - Publisher's Desk

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami reads his editorial from the Jul/Aug/Sep 2018 edition of Hinduism Today magazine. "That completes the process of achieving affectionate detachment. We start with unaffectionate attachment and then move to unaffectionate detachment. From there we move to affectionate detachment, which comes in two stages. The first stage is expressing more love and kindness towards others. The second stage is understanding others more clearly, cognizing the nature of family, friends and acquaintances in an intuitive way, from the inside out, and therefore loving them more and being able to get along with them better. The deeper truth is that we are learning about ourself the whole time, and our inner changes are reflected in our relationships."
