Well, as you may or may not know, Hinduism is polytheistic.  Many gods,
I think, personify similar attributes.  For love, the word Kama comes to
mind(as in Kama Sutra).  I'm not sure if there is a deity with this name,
but that's how love is said in Sanskrit.

Perhaps someone else may know more.....I'll ask around.
