The Sweetness of Bhakti By Subhag Swami

 

Bhaktivinoda Thakur boldly proclaims, ‘sad-anga saranagati hoibe janhara,’ one who follows these six paths of surrender strictly, the result is ‘tahara prarthana sune sri nanda-kumara’. Krsna will respond to our prayer. Why is this so? Because Bhakti is cit-tattva. Devotional service, the Lord and His devotees do not belong to this material world but are of…

He is also facing the consequences of this war – no matter how important or needed, there will be much loss and disruption.

As Arjuna moves through his crisis, asking questions and seeking guidance, we learn so many things about change – both change that…
