Day 8: Yoga of Devotion

60 min - Talk


We begin with a guided meditation before moving into a talk on what Krishna teaches us about Bhakti Yoga or the Yoga of Devotion or Love. According to the teachings, one needs to love God or Krishna, but more importantly needs to be loved by them. We conclude with a suggested homework reflection.

Is Krishna's love conditional, then? 
Dearest Misha Joy. We received this response from Ravi to your question. Please note that it is in two parts due to our character limit in these forums. 

"The Sun is shining outside. Are there conditions —such as opening the window and moving the curtain aside—for me to receive the energy being emitted by the Sun?  

...This is what another very great teacher, Jesus Christ, said: 'As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love. And you will dwell in my love if you keep my commandments, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and dwell in His love.' (John 15.9-10)"
Misha Joy, my understanding of Ravi's response is that while not conditional, we have a role to play. Love, Kira

Thank you for a very thought provoking talk.  "The way to be free from expression of truth is the truth" is to see more than one expressions particularly resonated with me; to be open to other points of view.  And I found the homework also a very intelligent question to contemplate.  Looking forward to next session !
