Love is a word used to describe our attachments in the world, and people use it a lot. And yet, despite having loved in the world for infinite lifetimes, we still have not understood the meaning of the word. Is it not astonishing? If we had understood, then it would not have taken us any great amount of time to attain it. So, let us ask those who have attained prem or divine love what it is ...
The goal of every living being in pursuit of happiness is to serve Shri Krishna, and for this selfless love must be attained. Devotion with the attainment of this exalted love as its goal can only begin when we understand its meaning. Love is a word uttered to infinitum in the world, but what is love? And more importantly, what is selfless love? Only when a spiritual aspirant has the answers can he or she begin to move towards the goal.
During the sadhana programme of 1989 in Bhakti Dham, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj gave this compelling series over four days to reveal the intricacies of selfless love, nishkam prem. Kripaluji guides us through the milestones of bhakti, the very heart of spirituality, elaborating on the qualities and important features, before and after arriving at the destination of bhav bhakti. Devotional practice and the attainment of bhav bhakti are both stages aspirants must go through and reach to make their prayer to God genuine. If our desire for God is not a deep-seated one, uttered in all humility and sincerity, how can anyone expect to receive the highest in return?
