Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj explains the greatness of bhakti (devotion)
“Whatever is difficult to receive, whatever is unattainable, and whatever is beyond the imagination of the human mind, is all obtained through bhakti. Apart from bhakti to Krishn you do not need to do anything else.” – Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj
According to Maharaj Kripalu, your soul eternally longs for such a ‘love’ that will infinately extend the peace and happiness of your mind and render your heart blissful, forever. Such a love is not a quality of this mayic world, neither a feature of your mind alone.
Devotion should not be an addition to the daily routine of your life, but rather, absorbed into all of the activities of life, large and small.
“The most important thing in devotion is that devotion should be done by the mind and not by physical senses alone.” – Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj
