Devotion as a spiritual guide
With Swami Jyotirmayananda
From the Bhakti Sutras of Sage Narada
Bhakti means devotion. The Narada Bhakti Sutras outline the birth, growth, development and expression of devotion in a lucid and simple manner. The sutras have a poetic charm and make a direct appeal to the heart. The language is very simple.
Sage Narada speaks to all alike in this short spiritual compass and his practical instructions in the path of divine love are directly applicable to daily life.
The course is open to all, no prior knowledge of the scripture is needed.
Each session includes a short silent meditation, chanting, study of verses of the Narada Bhakti Sutras and storytelling.
