We believe the prescription for nurturing love can be simply stated, but requires a lifetime to practice:

1. Meditation/contemplation to tap into the source of love

2. Allow love to dispel hate in our own hearts, first

3. From the position of a hate-free heart, we can help make the world a more loving place
