The path of pure spiritual devotion, love and surrender.
Bhakti Yoga is pure spiritual devotion, of love for God which is Love. The Deity is the beloved and the devotee is the
lover. In Bhakti yoga, everything is but a manifestation of the divine and all else is meaningless, including the Ego. When
the Bhakta is blessed by divine grace he feels an undivided union and non-dual consciousness prevails. Bhakti Yoga is regarded
as the most direct method to merge in cosmic consciousness.
Bhakti yoga is based on the doctrine "Love is God and God is Love". The bhakta experiences separation and longs
to meet or even just glimpse his beloved. Nothing else attracts him, nothing else holds his attention, all else is meaningless.
Food, sex, sleep, attachments, responsibilities - all are no longer important in bhakti yoga.
Bhakti Yoga is the most direct method, the shortest way to experience the divine. All yoga and knowledge, jnana, rest
on the foundation stone of true faith, true devotion, true bhakti yoga. There is nothing higher than love and Bhakti Yoga
is the religion of love. To kindle the candle of love with the spark of knowledge and to do the yoga of love or Bhakti Yoga.
In whatever form the Bhakta finds the divine, all other forms are magically present. The form literally becomes the deity,
which in term becomes the devotee. Knower and known, subject and object, deity and devotee - all become One. This is the essence
of Bhakti Yoga.
Knowledge and wisdom only provide an awareness of the cosmic principle. Bhakti Yoga lets one see the absolute manifested
in all experience.
