Have you dreamt of being perfectly and incandescently in love? At all times. In all places. No matter what happens around you. Even if the whole world collapses. Irrespective of whether it is reciprocated or not. Is that sort of unchanging and undying love even humanly possible for people to experience in this world? Through these 84 Bhakti Sutras, Sage Narada talks about just this kind of love: the unwavering and undiminishing kind of devotion that sees beyond the literal. That goes beyond the senses. That allows you to grow. The very word ‘Narada’ means the spoke that joins the circumference with the center in Sanskrit. So, the Sutras are lessons in being centered as a means of achieving the highest form of love – divine love. In this book, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar brings out the meaning of the Bhakti Sutras in his trademark simple and meaningful fashion with various real life examples and age-old tales. He ensures that knowledge of this devotion does not only appeal at the intellectual level but that it is harmoniously integrated into everyday life. Just as God manifests in various forms such as Shiva, Vishnu, Balaji, Krishna, Surya, Saraswati, Ganesh, Saraswati and Savitri, similarly love also comes in various flavors such as love for a person, love of companionship, divine love and so on. These Bhakti Sutras or Aphorisms on Love explain how the culmination of these flavors or forms of love is in divine love.
