Podcaster and best-selling author Jay Shetty bases his guide to love on the lessons he learned during his three years as a Hindu monk. Gleaning insights from his wife Radhi, whom he credits as one of his greatest teachers, Shetty seeks to demystify love by distilling it into a daily practice. People throw the word “love” around without really thinking about what it means, he says, and they often have misguided notions about its true nature.

    Love is a great teacher that teaches us Be Unconditional with your partner. " Unconditional " this word has full of love . But loving anyone unconditionally doesn't mean lose your Self - respect. Because it teaches that love , love means first of all my existence starts within you.
    Love teaches about full freedom from each other.
