BHAKTI YOGA : E -8.





E. NAVA-VIDHA-BHAKTI : 8.


Vandana is prayer and prostration.

Humble prostration touching the earth with the eight limbs of the body (Sashtanga-Namaskara),

with faith and reverence,

before a form of God,

or prostration to all beings knowing them to be the forms of the One God,

and getting absorbed in the Divine Love of the Lord is termed prostration to God or Vandana.


The ego or Ahamkara is effaced out completely through devout prayer and prostration to God.

Divine grace descends upon the devotee and man becomes God.

Swami Sivananda
