Bhakti  A Yoga Of Devotion long poem

Bhakti  A Yoga Of Devotion long poemPhoto by Kamaljith


How colourful is Bhakti-
The yoga of devotion and fidelity
It has a blend of various
Emotions and relations
In the yoga of devotion
God can be your parents
God can be your friend
God can be your lover
God can be your child
You can create any relationship
With a God
That is why when God incarnates
God himself loves the love-devotion
Of the Gopis
Than the intellect of Uddhava
Uddhava- a great scholar and an erudite
Turned into a devotee
Just by seeing the love of Krishna
In the eyes of the Gopis
The devotee has a leela-playfulness,
Chanting and kirtan
The devotee has a dance
What Joy a devotee feels
Can be understood by
Another devotee alone
Devotion is an ocean of
Divine love and ecstasy
Devotion is a cool breeze of
Joy and bliss
Not even having a tint
Of dryness and insipidity
How can I render the state of
Mira Bai and Akka Mahadevi?
How can I render the state of
Hanuman and Prahalad?
Words are inept to portray
Their experiences
Just their names are enough
To understand
The yoga of devotion.
