"Narad Bhakti Darshan" - An 8 Day Discourse

( Watch Narad Bhakti Sutra Week Long Speeches On Youtube )

Narad Bhakti Darshan is one of the most important scriptures explaining the true meaning of bhakti.

Date: January 15 - 22 2010
Time:
Weekdays & Saturday 7-8.3opm
Sun 4-6pm
Location:
1307 W. Forest Drive, Houston, TX 77043

Narad Bhakti DarshanJagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj teaches that bhakti is eternal. It is the eternally existing path to attain God. God is one, so the path of His attainment is also one, and thus, the same path of bhakti ensures the attainment of any of the forms of God.

The path of bhakti is prevalent in every brahmand of this entire universe and it is for all the souls of this universe. It remains the same in all the four yugas (satyug, treta, dwapar and kaliyug) and, as it is directly related to soul and God, it is above caste, creed, sect and nationality. It can be adopted by any person of any nation of this world, because it is gifted by the supreme God Himself for the benefit of the humankind; and again, there are no physical requirements in doing bhakti.

There are no meditation postures to adopt, no concentration techniques to follow and no rituals to observe. So it can be done by anyone, young, old or sick, and at any time in twenty-four hours, because bhakti is the pure love of your heart that longs to meet the Divine beloved of your soul in this very lifetime. The philosophy of bhakti is described in Narad Bhakti Darshan and explained by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. (Picture: Sage Narad Ji who revealed the Narad Bhakti Darshan).

How should one balance their worldly duties with the path of bhakti?
