Prabhata Rashmih – Making Devotion Wholesome

What is Devotion

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

  • What is Devotion

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

Swamiji speaks about the lack of a feeling of divinity experienced by devotees and seekers despite their religious practices. He discusses the importance of fondness and devotion towards God and the Guru.

The seeker needs to have a soft and flexible heart and a deep connection with one’s own nature and the divine. Spiritual practice is an experiential journey, where devotion to God and the Guru should lead to a palpable transformation within oneself. Swamiji encourages introspection and reliance on God’s grace to guide and correct one’s mistakes, emphasizing that devotion is not limited to formal rituals but is a heartfelt, experiential connection.
