What is Bhakti

According to the Narada Bhakti Sutra, Bhakti is an intense love of God. It is a a deep desire to experience love in its purest and highest form, to unite with what is eternal and immutable and manifests itself in all things.

The fascination with the immutable leads us on a journey of discovery. Radha-Krishna is right behind the veil of appearances and under the flow of forms. It is a journey, which involves more than anything else that we have known so far and what for us was known.

Why a Bhakti Festival

The desire for essentiality is immense. By rejecting essentiality we only create the darkness that allows a false identification. If the doubts of the old life are greater than the fear of truth, this is a moment of grace.

The Bhakti, which begins to flow into the community of the inflamed divine lovers, makes His presence visible again. God’s love extends beyond personal desire. A profound experience that we would like to invite you to share at the Bhakti Festival. ~ The CSPH Staff
