Om Namasivaya nama:
Infinite Love for Self / Athma:
Sense objects are giving pleasure only because of the involvement of Self who manifest through them not independently due to its un-attached nature. At the same time every one love Self because Self is every blissful (Sadananda) and never suffer or undergo sorrows or misery. Sense objects are pleasurable only when it is illuminated by the Athman. Self has only absolutely and every lasting happiness therefore every loves Self/Athman.
We experience the blissful Athman during the deep sleep stage (Sushupthi Avastha). There it is absolutely free and independent and not involved in any of the Vishayas (Sense objects). Do you know who says this Pramaanaas (proof of source) viz: Sruthi (Spiritual declarations / Vedas), Prathyaksham (Direct experience), Itheehyam (Tradition and customs), Anumanam (Inference) that Athman is Anandaswaroopan (blissful).
