Narada Bhakti Sutra is a collection of aphorisms, told by Sage Narada on Bhakti yoga. Bhakti yoga is a spiritual path which uses love and devotion to realize God, the divine source of the universe. Bhakti yoga is one of the most well-known paths of spiritual liberation or enlightenment. However, Bhakti yoga, unlike many other spiritual paths or systems, doesn’t put too much emphasis on concepts such as enlightenment or self-realization. The practitioner of Bhakti yoga often ignores the end result and is more involved with the journey itself which is to love God. Everything else becomes less prioritized, including the desire for salvation or enlightenment. The yogi knows that those things will come to him anyway since devotion leads to liberation. Building and sustaining a loving relationship with God is the fundamental process of Bhakti yoga. The end result is the same as other spiritual paths: enlightenment or God-realization.
Narada’s Bhakti Sutra is simultaneously a spiritual text on Bhakti Yoga, a practice manual that outlines many forms of spiritual techniques, and a collection of some of the most important principles of God-realization that basically summarize a large volume of sacred Hindu scriptures that precede Bhakti Sutra.
