In this interesting talk, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche talks about love and relationships. Using his very honest and humorous teaching approach, he talks about western love, and the love defined by Buddhism (Kiruna), which is limitless. He draws from his own experience, describing a time where he grew up in London and thinks he fell in love with a young girl (based on an ordinary definition of love), and as he humorously suggests, he suffered horribly.

Within the Buddhist tradition, love and relationships are not established as an institution, as in other religions. In spite of this, Rinpoche tries to explain how Buddhist wisdom can be applied to this topic.
