Bhakti Marga can show you how to cultivate a loving relationship with the Divine. You can experience an intimate connection with God when you chant the Divine Names and offer devotional service with love.
THE LOVER AND THE BELOVED
If we’re on the spiritual path, it is because the Divine is calling to remind us of our eternal relationship.
Through chanting the Divine Name and offering devotional worship with love, you can invite the Divine to be part of your life. In this way, you get to enjoy the ultimate Lover-Beloved relationship with a form of the Divine you feel close to.
This is a living bhakti.
In the Hindu tradition it is said that, ‘If you believe a stone to be a stone, it will be a stone. But, if you believe it to be God, it will become God.’ Devotional service done with full faith invokes Divine presence into a deity.
Through a worship ritual called puja, we can enjoy the sweetness of caring for the Divine as we would any loved one. Bathing, dressing and feeding your Beloved, in your own unique style, allows you to express your love and enjoy the intimacy of sacred time together.
Sanskrit is a vibrational language that has been used in prayer rituals for thousands of years. The vibrational frequencies generated from chanting sanskrit mantras calms the mind and drops you into the heart where the eternal Divine resides.
Each Divine Name invokes the presence of that form of Divinity. Chanting the name of your beloved draws them closer so that you may enjoy their company and they may enjoy your undivided attention.
Community prayer is much stronger than personal prayer, uplifting all those who participate. Bhakti Marga prayers help to connect participants with the Divine, removes negativity from their minds and helps to generate to a lasting positive outlook on life.
Temple prayers are rich and actively engage the senses with colours, fragrances, sounds, tastes, and textures, all offered for the delight of the Divine who, in turn, showers blessings upon everyone.
