Narada’s Bhakti Sutra is a collection of aphorisms, told by Sage Narada on Bhakti yoga. Bhakti yoga is a spiritual path which uses love and devotion to realize God, the divine source of the universe. Bhakti yoga is one of the most well-known paths of spiritual liberation or enlightenment. However, Bhakti yoga, unlike many other spiritual paths or systems, doesn’t put too much emphasis on concepts such as enlightenment or self-realization. The practitioner of Bhakti yoga often ignores the end result and is more involved with the journey itself which is to love God. Everything else becomes less prioritized, including the desire for salvation or enlightenment. The yogi knows that those things will come to him anyway since devotion leads to liberation. Building and sustaining a loving relationship with God is the fundamental process of Bhakti yoga. The end result is the same as other spiritual paths: enlightenment or God-realization.

 

In this book, you’ll learn:

  • The metaphysical nature of the universe

  • Spiritual liberation,

  • Renunciation,

  • Detached action,

  • Three modes of operation of the mind,

  • Mindfulness (of God) in everyday life, 

  • The process of surrender to higher power

 

This book contains the English translation as well as commentaries of Narada’s Bhakti Sutra by Hirok Das.

If only the many spiritual seekers obsessed with non-duality who are focused on gaining a mental or intellectual realization would read this book. Then they would know that the Heart realization is just as important as the Mind realization – and in our modern world of conflict and indifference, it is in fact more important. It is what we really need now!
