FOREWORD

 

By Sri Swami Satchidananda

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.

Let 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 ofbhakti, 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. What good comes of dwelling on one’s own faults and flaws? How difficult it may be to overcome through sheer willpower some problem or some attachment.
