Bhakti Communion with the One-Soulveda

Bhakti: Communion with the One

It is written in the books that bhakti is of the rupa of amrita. And amrita is, literally, 'not dead'. - Sadhu TL Vaswani

Absorption in God! Is not bhakti something more mystical?

To send Him back a fragment of His own love, so that we are reflected in Him and He in us, what higher privilege may human life hold than this? Bhakti is the absolute love of the soul for her Master. The Master is Love. In a deeper sense, indeed, bhakti is the Master’s own love realising itself in the bhakta. God utters Himself in the form, the rupa, of bhakti.

Bhakti is not ascetic aloofness from life. Bhakti grows out of the depths of life where love works hand in hand with death.

This is love’s immortality. Love gives beauty even to death. It is written in the books that bhakti is of the rupa of amrita. And amrita is, literally, ‘not dead’. Amrita means life everlasting. Bhakti grows out of life that plunges into matter—into the very depths of death—to unfold love’s destiny.

Bhakti must not be a pale abstraction. Bhakti must grow out of fellowship with life, out of communion with nature and humanity to him who has fellowship with life!
