BHAKTI YOGA : F :1.
The nine modes of Bhakti are the ways in which a devotee attains the Supreme Ideal of life.
A devotee can take up any of these paths and reach the highest state.
The path of Bhakti is the easiest of all and is not very much against the nature of human inclinations.
It slowly and gradually takes the individual to the Supreme without frustrating his human instincts.
It is not direct assertion of God, but a progressive realization of Him.

Bhakti softens the heart and removes jealousy, hatred, lust, anger, egoism, pride and arrogance.
It infuses joy, divine ecstasy, bliss, peace and knowledge.
All cares, worries and anxieties, fears, mental torments and tribulations entirely vanish.
The devotee is freed from the Samsaric wheel of births and deaths.
He attains the immortal abode of everlasting peace, bliss and knowledge.
