What is True Devotion

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

  • What is True Devotion

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

The entire effort of the human being is to elevate himself from the level of them emotional and prejudicial to the level of wisdom and intelligence.

Speaking on devotion and prayer, Swamiji shares that people pray for a son in their family or for prolonging her sick husband’s life. Ignorance and delusion are the cause of this type of prayer.

Follow the command of God on this journey of life, says Swamiji. Our life is predetermined. Therefore, the prayer should be to have unflinching devotion to the lotus feet of the lord and for the mind to be free of desires. This is the inner spiritual elixir.

Most prayers are unrealistic. Receive whatever comes and rejects whatever goes, concludes Swamiji. Once we understand the Subject, this automatically happens.

Shlokas chanted in the Track:

नान्या स्पृहा रघुपते हृदयेऽस्मदीये सत्यं वदामि च भवानखिलान्तरात्मा ।
भक्तिं प्रयच्छ रघुपुंगव निर्भरां मे कामादिदोषरहितं कुरु मानसं च ।।

Srirāmacaritamānas-Sundarakāṇḍa-2

नास्था धर्मे न वसुनिचये नैव कामोपभोगे
यद्भव्यं तद्भवतु भगवन् पूर्वकर्मानुरूपम् ।

Mukundamala 5

ह्येतत् प्रार्थ्यं मम बहुमतं जन्मजन्मान्तरेऽपि
त्वत्पादाम्भोरुहयुगगता निश्चला भक्तिरस्तु ।।

मात्रास्पर्शास्तु कौन्तेय शीतोष्णसुखदुःखदाः ।
आगमापायिनोऽनित्यास्तांस्तितिक्षस्व भारत ।।

Bhagavad Gita 2.14

Āyātam āyātam apekṣanīyam gatam gatam sarvamupekṣanīyam.
