THE SATRAS - II

The natural and inalienable attachment of the mind of the devotee to God is called Prema-bhakti; it is five-fold: Santa (peaceful love), dasya (service of God), sakhya (friendship with God), vatsalya (filial
attitude towards God), and Madhurya (sweet love or love of God as one's lover). Sankaradeva advocated the dasya type of Bhakti. In fact, servanthood of devotee and God as master is the keynote of Sankarite works. It may be noted here that all the writers of Sankaradeva's school style themselves 'servants unto the Lord' at the end of each section of their books. In Dasama, Sankaradeva says:-

"Lord of the world, You can prove the minds of all; I dedicate my body to You. Snap the chine of my foolishness. Henceforward, I am Your bond slave; Have mercy on me, Oh pivot of the world."

Thus Sankaradeva laid more emphasis on the doctrine of bhakti, particularly of the dasya type.
