Is there anything that prevents us from discovering our true nature? Bhakti yoga says that our main problem is disassociation from the sacredness of divinity and divinity that encompasses all things in the Universe. We often view ourselves as an isolated part of a very mundane universe.
Bhakti yoga refers to selfless devotion and the recognition of the sacred or divinity in all things. It is important to encourage Bhakti by cultivating reverence for something that appears separate from oneself through recognition of its sacred essence.
Bhakti cultivation practices
It could be as simple a recognition that you wake up every morning. This could be an acknowledgement of your breathing’s aliveness. Your heartbeat. You can also notice the beauty inherent in flowers or the sun.
Bhakti can also be expressed as a simple blessing of appreciation for the food we eat. Chanting mantras or prayers is another way to connect with the Divine qualities of the manifest Universe.
It is important to recognize when sacred love has been found and to direct your attention inward. You might discover that the Divinity you feel towards something and the reverence it inspires in you is actually the same sacred love you have within yourself.
The Bhakti is then the recognition of the Divinity that weaves into everything that exists, even ourselves. This is how the distinction between seeing, seer, and seen disappears. The only thing left is the sacred and divine Oneness.
