The Dalai Lama isn't talking about corporeal love. He's talking about Divine love. Divine Love is accepting, allowing, and forgiving — and the common denominator of all these is the ABSENSE OF JUDGEMENT. Divine love accepts everyone as they are — it does not judge and/or try to change others. Divine Love allows everyone to BE as they choose — it does not judge and insist that they BE something else. Divine love forgives others for there mistakes — it very slow to judge or condem.
This way of being has been expounded upon by many great spiritual messengers and if adopted and applied consistently would transform our the quality of our lives and the world. When will Humanity see the futility of judgement? When will it embrace unconditional love and forgiveness?
