“The path of love and devotion is the easiest way to attain the Divine.” – Bhakti Sutras of Narada
Join me for a playful exploration of Bhakti Yoga. The most popular limb of Bhakti Yoga in the West is Kirtan, and of course we will do lots of chanting together, but there will also be time for stories about the deities and saints, personal reflections, questions and discussion.
Bhakti Yoga is one of the four main yogic paths to enlightenment. Bhakti means “devotion” or “love” and this path contains various practices to unite the bhakta (Bhakti Yoga practitioner) with the Divine. Bhakti Yoga is considered the easiest yogic path to master and the most direct method to experience the unity of mind, body and spirit. While Hatha Yoga requires a strong and flexible body, Raja Yoga requires a disciplined and concentrated mind, and Jnana Yoga requires a keen intellect, the only requirement for Bhakti Yoga is an open, loving heart. But Bhakti Yoga complements other paths of yoga well, and it is said that jnana (knowledge or wisdom) will dawn by itself when you engage in the devotional practices of Bhakti Yoga.
“Bhakti is Love – loving God, loving your own Self, and loving all beings. The small heart should become bigger and bigger and, eventually, totally expansive. A spark can become a forest fire.” – Amma
This is a small group limited to just 10 participants so advanced booking is essential.
