Message from the Master
27 December 2017
'The Bhakti path and bhakti knowledge along with bhakti technology is the most superior spirituality. It’s simply this: what’s the use of knowing all these sacred scriptures, meditation, doing all these austerities, yagnas, etc., if there is no sincere surrender to God, serving Him, and belonging to Him? What’s the use of knowing about God without knowing God?
The superior knowledge is surrender to Him. And the highest state of existence is to serve Him. Surrender to God and serving God is Bhakti Marga, the path of devotion. That is why Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita said that only a bhakta knows Him in truth. And not to forget that surrender to God means ‘yes’ to life and acceptance. On the Bhakti path, we do not talk about surrender, we live it. If this is not the case, then it is not understood correctly. Of course, at the beginning, it is an attitude, but by living it, it becomes a habit, a natural reaction, a way of life, and it grows more and more and deeper and deeper until it becomes the ultimate Realisation.'
