Founder/Sri Gurudev: Integral Yoga
Institutes and Satchidananda Ashram.
The scriptures tell us that in this
modern age, the easiest path to the Godhead
is through Bhakti Yoga, the Yoga of devotion. I would say that
the most valuable thing of all is to
develop intense love for God. Sri Ramakrishna
Paramahamsa called this "Raga Bhakti" or passionate
attachment to God. With this kind of
bhav you will be able to achieve every
and any success in life.
us cultivate that raga bhakti through kirtan, japa, puja, and all
our spiritual practices. Do whatever is
necessary to gain that bhakti,
and if you can irrigate the garden of
your heart with the waters of bhakti,
then there will be no real effort required to develop dispassion.
You will be simply transformed by your sincere devotion and communion
with God that all the worldly desires, attachments, vasanas, and
samskaras will just fall right away.
