(Paramatma within everyone's heart)

Prabhupāda: We are searching after a lover. That day the boys were singing, what is that singing? You said?

Devotee: Yes. "You better find somebody to love."

Prabhupāda: Jaya. Better find out somebody to love.* That is the problem. That is the problem of this life. Everyone is there... Now, after disappointment they say that "I had tried to find out somebody, girl or boy, to love, but I was, I mean to say, frustrated, disappointed. Now I find the dog is the best friend." Yes. Actually, they say like that. "We find the dog is the best friend." Is it not? Yes. Why? Everyone is searching after to love somebody. That's a fact. Because we are lover. Our constitutional position is lover.

Prahlāda Mahārāja says that Viṣṇu, your loving object is Viṣṇu. So try to love Viṣṇu, then your life will be successful. You'll feel satisfaction. Yayātmā suprasīdati. You'll feel, "Oh, I have got something now. Now I have got this loving object." In another place Prahlāda Mahārāja said na te viduḥ svārtha gatiṁ hi viṣṇu. They do not know what is their actual loving object. That is Viṣṇu.

(Srila Prabhupada Lecture, Boston, May 8, 1968)

*Srila Prabhupada is referring to the hit song, "Somebody to Love," by the Jefferson Airplane.
