Bhakti Yoga: The path of Love

Bhakti yoga is known as the perfection of yoga. All paths lead to this one, but this one relies on the others. This is the path that focuses on love and devotion to the Divine, Supreme Being.

The path of jnana yoga leads to the understanding of how truly glorious and majestic the Supreme Being is.

Raja yoga controls the mind and the senses so that you might experience glimpses of the blissful peace and love of the Divine.

Karma yoga regulates your actions to gain good karma and avoid bad karma, so that you are in alignment with the Divine.

The highest state of Enlightenment is achieved through bhakti yoga, but only once you have perfected the other paths.

This is the path that will bring about Krishna/Christ Consciousness, and the state known as Buddha Nature. Many argue as to whether there is a God or whether there is no God.

Buddha never said that there was, but he also never said that there wasn’t. Buddha’s lessons focused on compassion and the oneness of all. God is Oneness.

This whole physical Universe is the manifestation of God. Buddha focused his teachings on karma yoga and raja yoga so that human souls could gain positive karma to aid them in their quest.

Buddha knew there is a God, for he became one with God, but how do you teach that everything is God? Just now is science proving that everything is one.

God is far more powerful than you could possibly imagine, yet at the same time infinitely loving.

The very essence of God is love. All who focus on the Supreme, by whatever valid name, or form, or formlessness attain him. Our love for him is reflected back to us.

Nothing is more joyous than the bliss brought about by pure love and devotion.

To attain Enlightenment through devotion one must first have reached the level of consciousness of unconditional love and salvation. This is the lesson Lord Jesus taught.

One’s body, mind, and spirit must be pure, and if one is truly blessed, all may be revealed!

Enlightening Lotus

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
(Siddhartha Gautama)
(The Buddha)
