Every action of every individual soul is performed only with the aim of fulfilling its self-interest. This is the philosophy of the Vedas. Until a soul's self-interest is satisfied, until the moment a soul finds that infinite, eternally gratifying divine love, it will continue to act physically and mentally to satisfy its self-interest alone ...
In the pursuit of happiness, desirous of attaining the divine love of God, a wise spiritual aspirant on the path of bhakti yoga instructs his mind, "O mind! Listen to something which will prove useful to you." The spiritual significance of this statement and the practical advice that follows is the subject of this compelling series of discourses from 1984 given by Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj. It is an elaboration on the meaning of suno mana eka kama ki bata, a bhakti song from his Prem Ras Madira, and this two-volume set comprises transcripts of all fourteen discourses.
Swami Kripalu Ji Maharaj begins by discussing who the doer of our actions is, and how we can free ourselves from worldly desires. As the series unfolds, the deeper meaning of devotion, bhakti, and the intricate meaning of spirituality is revealed. We learn about the relationship between devotion and desire, the importance of humility and how to attach the mind to God, the rupdhyan of Radha Krishna, the concurrency of attachment and detachment, destiny and selfish devotion, the secret behind deity worship, karmayoga and the performance of spiritual discipline. All this and more is authenticated by scriptural references from the Vedas, Puranas, and Upanishads.
