To Love or Not to Love

My good friend (and former mentor at Denver Seminary) Doug Groothuis has a brief post showing the problem with love from the eastern worldview angle (some Buddhist and Hindu). Given the metaphysical building blocks used to construct the eastern worldview, he asserts it’s not possible to hold on to the notion of love. Of course, there is much more that could be said, but the post gives a good introduction to the problem (and the solution). He writes:

Thus, both Buddhism and nondualism evacuate reality of persons and love, each in its own way: attributes without substance (Buddhism: all is many) or substance without attributes (nondualism: all is one).
