BhaktiSeptember 10, 2018
In Sanskrit the word Bhakti means devotion. There are 9 forms of devotion in the practice of Bhakti Yoga.
One of them is Kirtanam or Kirtan - singing of God’s glories. Since Yoga grew out of Hinduism, we mostly sing of Hindu gods, but actually (and practically) any god is welcome.
We sing christian hymns like ‘amazing grace’ or old jewish prayers, rainbow and medicine songs, Buddhist mantras, Rumi’s poetry and more… We sing in Sanskrit, Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic and English.
We sing of Mother Nature, of Creation, of the Self, of God and of different different deities.
We sing from the heart, melting into the melody. There is no need to understand the words or identify with any meaning.
Bhakti Yoga asks the practitioners for so little: Surrender to Love.
