THE SATRAS - II

In Bhakti -Ratnakara, he says: -

"Though the state of liberation is all happiness, yet Bhakti is superior to Mukti, in as much as, the latter is devoid of joy inherent in the service, to the Lord, while the bliss of Mukti is inherent in the former, (Bhakti)." Therefore, according to him, liberation is inherent in Bhakti and, automatically takes its own course.

Bhakti consists in the firm and over - whelming affection for God with a full senses of His greatness; through this alone can there be emancipation. Though Bhakti is the Sodhana and Moksha is the
goal, yet it is the sadhana stage that is the best. Those who enter into the bliss of Brahman have the experience of that bliss in their selves; but those devotees who do not enter into this state or into the state of Jiva? -Mukti is better than the jivanmuktas. The supreme devotion is superior to jnana, karma and yoga.
