At the ground of our being, there is a dormant hunger for the sacred. It is the most tender part of us. Like all perennial wisdom traditions, Bhakti Yoga seeks to uncover and engage this good direction.
This longing is our power. It is everything that is our willingness, our openness, our yes. So we work with our longing. We express it in practice as offering. This is the way we remember our oneness with the Beloved.
The sanskrit root “bhaj,” means “to engage with affection.” Bhakti Yoga is the cultivation of a mutual, intense, emotional attachment with the Divine. Through daily practice- we take one, focused step forward, and the Beloved rushes to carry us.
