Bhakti is woman’s/man’s love of God and therefore the response of God to Woman’s/Man’s feeling is Grace.

The Concept of Bhakti or Devotion

Many believe bhakti is restricted to offerings, praising hymns and regular service. Thus we see devotees who pray within the temples regularly without fail still find themselves entangled with many unsolved problems. Therefore there’s a requirement to completely understand the concept of bhakti. A virtuous life is vital . Faith, purity, self-control, self-conquest, detachment and truth are all required. Faith may be a primary requirement where the devotee should improve and understand about Hinduism/Sanatana Dharma with the contact of sages and devotees along side the knowledge of devotional books and admiration of the Almighty. Purity means the purity of both mind and body. All the external purification ceremonies sponsored by the faith could support the purity of mind and spirit. the most task is to realize godliness.

Self-control means controlling both the body and therefore the mind. One should avoid doing things which bring sins to him. The positive aspects like patience, forbearance, modesty, humility, self-sacrifice and self-effacement will cause self-control. When one can control his mind, he’s actually practising self-conquest. this may help him to urge liberation. Detachment is that the next step of self- conquest. We must overcome evil and be independent of excellent things in life. Family ties and love for youngsters , relatives and friends are all good but blindly associating with them will only bring attachment. Selfishness must be removed. Truth is that the main moral aspect. In Tamil it’s termed as ‘satyam’. Truth could also be expanded to other forms like harmlessness, justice, forgiveness, modesty, chastity and so on.
