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.
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 kirtana, 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.
