Live online session of 50 minutes.
Bhakti is a Sanskrit word meaning “service done with devotion to the divine”.
Bhakti is our essential nature; the core of who we are as spiritual beings- eternal, full of bliss and full of knowledge. Since bhakti lies within us as a potentiality, bhakti-yoga directs us to awaken our dormant devotion through daily spiritual practices, and demonstrate our bhakti in every aspect of our lives – and in every relationship.
One might question that if this is my nature, why am I not always blissful? Why do I experience ignorance when I am full of knowledge? Why do I fear death when I am eternal? The reason is that our divine nature is not manifest. We are presently covered over my illusion, or matter. The practices of bhakti, especially meditation and kirtan (the chanting taught here at Chantnow.com), reading sacred wisdom texts, associating with like-minded spiritual practitioners, and practical devotional service, gradually purify our consciousness and awaken the bhakti within us. As we make this connection, we experience more of our true nature and thus manifest more of our divine qualities.
