Bhakti Yoga

The literal meaning of word Bhakti is “Devotion”, hence Bhakti Yoga is the path of Devotion. A path more suited for “Heart oriented” people, who feel highest bliss by emotion of love.

This is path of “Union by Love for God“, that’s why you give yourself to him! Actually, devotion means a major let go, a surrender. Its about how you can dissolve more of yourself into God .

And the truth is, this is the Highest Yoga. although anyone can practice is… this is one yoga which definitely doesn’t have any precaution or side effects… still in practicality, this for the upper grade sadhak in any Path,

Thats because, for most people in world, God is only a dream or thought or theorem or concept of some kind… but for the spiritually awakened one, God is a living experience, only when you have known it/him, you can surrender to him!

And surrender to Supreme is the Supreme Bliss!
