BHAKTI – YOGA

The ‘Bhakti
Yoga’ means union with the Godhead through Devotion. Of all the various
yogas described by various scriptures, BhaktiYoga is expounded to be the
most easiest way  to Supreme Realization. The Bhagavata Purana,
which can be considered to be a totally Bhakti Yoga inclined literature
work, describes the Glories Of Bhakti Yoga.

 “If
when falling, slipping, feeling pain or sneezing one
involuntarily cries out in a loud voice, “Obeisance to Lord
Hari!” one will be automatically freed from all his sinful
reactions.


 When
people properly glorify the Supreme Personality of Godhead or
simply hear about His power, the Lord personally enters their
hearts and cleanses away every trace of misfortune, just as the
sun removes the darkness or as a powerful wind drives away the
clouds.


 Words
that do not describe the transcendental Personality of Godhead
but instead deal with temporary matters are simply false and
useless. Only those words that manifest the transcendental
qualities of the Supreme Lord are actually truthful, auspicious
and pious.


 Those
words describing the glories of the all-famous Personality of
Godhead are attractive, relishable and ever fresh. Indeed, such
words are a perpetual festival for the mind, and they dry up the
ocean of misery.


 Those
words that do not describe the glories of the Lord, who alone
can sanctify the atmosphere of the whole universe, are
considered to be like unto a place of pilgrimage for crows, and
are never resorted to by those situated in transcendental
knowledge. The pure and saintly devotees take interest only in
topics glorifying the infallible Supreme Lord.


 On
the other hand, that literature which is full of descriptions of
the transcendental glories of the name, fame, forms, pastimes
and so on of the unlimited Supreme Lord is a different creation,
full of transcendental words directed toward bringing about a
revolution in the impious lives of this world’s misdirected
civilization. Such transcendental literatures, even though
imperfectly composed, are heard, sung and accepted by purified
men who are thoroughly honest.


 Knowledge
of self-realization, even though free from all material
affinity, does not look well if devoid of a conception of the
Infallible [God]. What, then, is the use of even the most
properly performed fruitive activities, which are naturally
painful from the very beginning and transient by nature, if they
are not utilized for the devotional service of the Lord?


 The
great endeavor one undergoes in executing the ordinary social
and religious duties of the varnasrama system, in performing
austerities, and in hearing from the Vedas culminates only in
the achievement of mundane fame and opulence. But by respecting
and attentively hearing the recitation of the transcendental
qualities of the Supreme Lord, the husband of the goddess of
fortune, one can remember His lotus feet.


 Remembrance
of Lord Krishna’s lotus feet destroys everything inauspicious
and awards the greatest good fortune. It purifies the heart and
bestows devotion for the Supreme Soul, along with knowledge
enriched with realization and renunciation.”


(Bhagavatha Puran)


  

   The Bhakti Yoga
is easier to be practiced, but it is truly difficult for our ego which
questions you each time you try to say that I am nothing in front of
you; O Lord God, Krishna, Jesus, Rama or whichever God Head we are
perceiving as our targeted pattern. This happens normally in a
situation, where the mind of the rebellious (can we call it rebellious,
when we consider that God also tells us to do our own work and make
money to be given back to him; in a world where only the best of Egos
and self respect wins?)  is asking him the most important and
relevant questions of all times:


 ” How do you
know that all this crap is true???”


 
It really
poses a question whether the religious organizations should be
making a forceful effort to convince the devotees that they have
to believe first and then they would know what is God. The funny
factor is that most of the advanced teachers of our age; who are
presently in between us and preaching (both of the christian
canonical organizations or eastern religions including hinduism)
are still fiercely trying to find out the true source, following
in the way of total blind belief, that knowledge has become a
secondary thing to them and they try to gather more people on
their way, exhibiting their miraculous powers (Got from the
higher planes, but not the highest plane) so that even if lost
in between; the devotees would be there to suffer along with
them.


 
  The Ancient
Sages of india were never lazy to read and assimilate
information with an open mind or understand the true nature of
universe by introspection. They reached their position of God
Realization by total introspection and concentration, which any
beggar can do given a little space and food; which we in our
cozy modern homes have for plenty. They first reached there and
then told those who are coming behind of the Reality they saw
and they started worshipping it with all their might; because
they individually couldn’t fathom the depth of intelligence
emanating from the source. Feeble minded followers thus started
worshipping as an easy solution as humans always have a habit of
taking and seeking shortcuts!!! They were answered and rescued
in the meantime, because the source is not a passive but active
power; and we are anyway sparks from the original light; so
begging to be back into the family is not a big thing to ask,
and not a difficult decision to be made from the other side.

 


  The more
intelligent and persistent ones still advanced with their
queries and though with a little more difficulty; they also
reached the destination and is still reaching.
Jesus as a
perfect example, was a true seeker who never accepted any thing
even remotely connected with bind beliefs and traveling through
his own chosen way for more than 20 years he roamed around the
world, saw and learned new things and ultimately learned the
secrets of meditation, creation and hyperspace theories. Through
knowledge only he attained the light; but after realization, he
could only say ‘wow’ and talk about it for the rest of his life.
He talked to so many ignorant ones including those of the
churches and they were only impressed by his miracles and not
his teachings.

 


   The ascension
and miracles eventually made the local population convinced that
this man has seen some thing which they one day dream to see,
and moreover which is powerful and thus to be feared. The
worshipping started much later as the then totally disintegrated
religious spiders didn’t have anything else to weave on and
Jesus was an ideal target. It is very curious that Jesus was
idolized by those same men who crucified him and Jesus was made
a statue upon which the religious leaders built up their
greatest empire on earth, using the same ideals of idol worship
that Jesus tried to prevent at any cost. What should be his
reaction when he visits earth, to see his preaching’s of
prohibiting idol worship being arduously studied by billions all
over the world – in front of his life like statues with dripping
blood?


 
  There have
always been on earth weak minded incarnations and minds with
strong will power and determination. The Bhakti Yoga is intended
for a weak-minded person so that he would also get a chance to
try a hand at it in his present incarnation. The
Jnana Yoga or
The Union with Light (Not God; as there is no god in pure Jnana
Yoga, but a supreme entity which is one without a second)
through knowledge is for those with tremendous will power; and
lastly the combined approach is for those who want to be sure
either way.
