Bhakti Yoga is the third and the most powerful form of yoga. But what is the source of its power, Many call those powerful to be mystical. But is that so? This will be one of the points, on which we will be throwing light today. Apart from that, there is need to know, what Bhakti Yoga actually is? Is Bhakti Yoga essential and Who can practice Bhakti Yoga. When answer to all these can be given answer of the first question also comes out naturally. So, today we will be covering on these four key areas.

Bhakti yoga in one word means devotion, but behind this one word there are as many words as the world entirely pronounces otherwise. This is the form of yoga that can never be imitated and never be trained or even be learned. The foremost rule of Bhakti yoga is its spontaneity. Unless that comes spontaneously at your heart, you are not eligible to enter this room of Yoga, the highest room in fact. Actors do pretend to enter that room, but that doesn’t add merit to their life and salvation. In fact, demerit, without doubt adds to their life and when they start reacting, the person realizes what he had done for money and fame.

Bhakti Yoga reveals many things to a Yogi and the essentiality of that is love for eternity. He/she can go through the steps of Gyan Yoga or Karma yoga, or even both to reach this room, where he feels his life has meaning only when he attains attachment to Lord. This feeling gradually envelops his mind, body and in every parts of life and he gradually understands that the world is entirely of Lord and he is not even away from him, and never was away. This makes him desperate to seek closeness to his or her lord and from there the actual path of Bhakti Yoga starts.

In our earlier lesson, we said that practicing Karma Yoga is very much tough, since attachment naturally comes towards material objects. A person deepened in Bhakti Yoga faces no problem to practice Karma Yoga, since he has a bigger attachment towards his lord. Hence, to him the only attachment remains towards his or her lord and does rest all works only for the sense of duty. However, you have to be very much careful in judging a pure Bhakti Yoga practiser, since Actors and imitators are filled in the world, while Bhakti Yoga is considered.  

Remaining in touch with a pure soul essentially means a Karma Yogi, Gyan Yogi or Bhakti Yogi (Satsang). However, identifying a pure Bhakti yogi, standing in this Kali Yuga, is really tough hunt. The basic knowledge about this Yoga form can solve the issues and perfect Satsang can be identified thus. About the effects of Satsang, we will discuss that later in some other lesson.

Bhakti means surrender and where there is surrender, there is only one demand – “Take me Away”. Thus no sense of urge comes to seek anything from the lord, except Lord Himself. This is the key or the judgemental issue of pure Bhakti. While one finds in book that Lord is all and everything and generates a feel from that reading to get anything while sought from lord, he/she starts praying a lot, does many pujas and yagnas, but all of them are meant to be directed towards fulfilling desires. This is the result of imitation of Bhakti Yoga  and this imitation sinks one to material desires and removes him or her from Salvation or real Yoga. So, keep a distance from those and don’t ever try to teach them, since their wrong can be identified either by an incarnated soul or the Time and Prakriti, and none other. These fellows are so much charged with negative energy that they have the capacity to neutralize your positivity within seconds. Coming to the conclusion of this part, the easiest way to understand who is imitating Bhakti Yoga and who is actually a Bhakti Yogi is very much simple –

A Bhakti Yogi never seeks anything from Lord except him or her alone. At times, he can seek justice for the entire society and even at times seek support of mind so that, his or her own self remains only attached to Lord.

On the Other Hand, one who will be imitating Bhakti Yoga, will continuously seek material objects, like promotion at Job, increment at job, better results in classes, acceptance of offer made to opposite gender to be spouse, husband must follow my words and even pray for a baby.

There are some tit bits and they can be formulated into some rules too, which are not to be followed but to be judged. (Since a Bhakti Yogi naturally follow those rules, without anyone’s direction). These rules are vast and we will be covering those in some of our later episodes or in different episodes altogether.

At one time source of power of a person deepened in Bhakti Yoga was the most frequently asked question in the world of religion. Very few asks this question now though, but why this difference? Question about anything comes when that is seen before eyes. Since such a Bhakti Yogi is scarce now in the world, such power is also unseen and hence the question about the power of Bhakti Yoga is obsolete one now. But, still I must answer this question, since that day is not much away, when this power is going to be seen again, as the end time so Kali Yuga is very close.

While practicing Bhakti Yoga, a person sinks into the soul and surrenders himself or herself to the universal soul fully. Much he/she sinks, more the effect of illusion works on him or her, as he or she leaves caring those material illusions. Naturally, the effect of mind, soul, senses and even 96 tatvas acts in their own way, as does with all, but the soul, the supreme one, the universally existing one, the one who alone exists and every other things seems to be existing because of her envelops the mind, body and intellect of the Devotee. Thus power of Soul is explicated in him/her and when pressurized, that power is seen by all.

That power is such that it can break all cuffs and all rules. That power is such that every known becomes unknown and every unknown becomes known. That power is such that a thousand years happening happens within second. That power is unbound by time and even from Prakriti. Hence naturally, when that shows its power, every observer feels that to be mysticism, but actually that is the power of soul, in its actual. This power was visible in Kabir, in Prahlad, in Meera Bai, in Hanuman and in many other real time Bhakts or devotees, who unconditionally practiced Bhakti Yoga.

Bhakti Yoga eases Karma Yoga
