LOVE – PATH AND THE GOAL
The path to God is through Love. Just Love. Bhakti Marga is a path of devotion – a journey from the mind to the heart where we encounter true Love and our Divine Self. True Love is Unconditional Love from and for the Divine. The bhakti path is centred around developing a personal relationship with the Divine in such a way that unconditional acceptance of oneself blossoms and pure love flows to others. As this Divine Love arises within, so does the self-confidence to apply it in everyday life.
The ultimate spiritual goal of a human existence is to realise the Divine within oneself and in all of creation. At some point along the spiritual journey, one cannot advance beyond the limits of one’s own will and a deep inner ‘calling’ awakens to lead one to the feet of a Master, a Satguru, who can take them all the way to God-Realisation.
Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda is a living, enlightened, God-realised Master whose true nature is transcendent, beyond all limits. He is here to remind us all of the love of God and to show us how to experience and enjoy a uniquely personal relationship with God through bhakti, love and devotion to the Divine.
Mahavatar Babaji is the immortal yogi who has given Kriya Yoga to the world, and Sri Ramanuja Acharya is the one responsible for consolidating and refining the philosophy and practices of the Sri Sampradaya (our spiritual lineage). They remind us that no spiritual goal can be achieved on our own; the Grace of the Master is always needed.
The core values of the Bhakti Marga path are love, patience and unity. Learning to love ourselves, others and the Divine helps one change from the inside out, inspiring others to do the same. Patience is developed by learning to do one’s dharma (duty) with an attitude of acceptance and devotion. Unity comes as we learn to work together and grow into seeing everyone and everything as an aspect of Divine creation.
When you’re on the spiritual path, sometimes you need more information and sometimes you need more experience. Sometimes you need sangha (community) and sometimes you need solitude.
Bhakti Marga offers a variety of courses, events, and experiences, and we invite you to explore them all. Choose from any of these options to connect, relax, focus your mind, and open your heart.
