SANATANA DHARMA | IWGR VI | RAMA राम
|| BHAKTI OR DEVOTION ||
Let this be explained in a simpler way . Bhakti or Devotion means unselfish Love for GOD .
You cannot Love anybody , unless you feel oneness with the object of your Love . This is the infallible Law of Nature .
Therefore , the devotee's Love for GOD means one's feeling of oneness with GOD .
But since GOD is not a confined body , being Infinite and Limitless , the Love for GOD means Love for All , the entire Universe .
Without Loving All , you cannot truly Love GOD , the All-pervading Being .
Therefore , according to the immutable Law of Nature , you must feel your practical unity of oneness with all , the All .
This feeling of unity with GOD , the All , is the quintessence of Gyan Marga , the Vedanta , or Non-Dualism .
Rama , therefore , wonders as to why some people think that the Bhakti Marga , the path of Devotion is something different from the Gyan Marga , the path of Divine Knowledge or Vedanta .
As a matter of fact , there is no difference whatsoever .
