Description

The Narada Bhakti Sutra is a short Vedic text attributed to the Indian sage Narada, who was an authority on the nature of Bhakti Yoga, the spiritual path of devotion to God. This program will consist of a close reading of all 84 sutras of this sacred text, as well as an exploration of the Bhakti lifestyle and practices, the nature of Isvara God as the recipient of bhakti, the mindset cultivated by the bhakta, and the madness of ecstatic divine love.
