On another list, someone claims that the notion of " love " first appeared
in the jewish sacred texts, around 12 centuries before Christ.
This person also says that buddhists took back the jewish notion of " love "
in presenting " compassion ".
May i ask which hindu sanskrit word most accurately represent notions of "
love " and " compassion " (karuna?) and when this notion is commonly
recognised to have been written first ?
