‘Love is the law of life. To love is to fulfil the law. And to fulfil the law means eternal peace and everlasting happiness. Love is life. Love is joy. Love is warmth. Love is the golden tie which binds heart to heart, soul to soul. To live is to love. To love is to live.’ – Swami Sivananda
Bhakti means devotion, the most precious of all possessions. Bhakti opens the heart, fills the mind with purity and generates harmony and divine love. The Narada Bhakti Sutras are filled with devotion. In a brief discourse containing 84 aphorisms, sage Narada defines the process of devotion and the nature of selfless love. Its language is simple, beautiful and direct. Its profound wisdom touches the heart and is directly applicable to daily life.
