    Hindu's Mythology's Guide to True Love
    The entire human existence revolves around the concept of love. While ‘love’ in today’s world has adopted different meanings, ancient Hindu mythology depicts not just the origin of love, but also provides a beautiful spin to its various stages.
    Let's check out how the concept of 'Love' originated as per shastras.
    The story dates back to the Vedas that depicts the story of a 'cosmic man' Purusha. Having no desires, feelings, fear or cravings whatsoever, the universe back then was perfect and devoid of all forms of sins. That’s when Lord Brahma, the creator came into the picture and slashed Purusha in two.
    Resultant, the entire universe split in two; the sky separated from earth, darkness from light, life from death and male from female. Ever since, the two severed halves have been passionately trying to reunite with one another.
    It was this urge of re-uniting that created the concept of love, lust and togetherness known to mankind today. No wonder, husband/wife today is called 'the better half.'
    Besides the love of the opposite sex, 5 other forms of love have been described by the shastras. Read on...
