A collection of concise verses spoken by the immortal sage Narada on bhakti, our essential relationship with the Supreme Self, Krishna.
Down through the ages, highly evolved souls of both the East and West have taught that we can attain perfect, pure, and eternal love only when we learn to love God. Bhakti-yoga, the science of devotion, teaches us this art. And there is no greater teacher than the Vedic sage Narada.
Narada’s eighty-four jewellike aphorisms on devotion, known as the Narada-bhakti-sutra, reveal the secrets of love of God—what it is, and isn’t; what its effects are; what helps or hinders our progress along the path; and much more. For the sincere seeker of life’s ultimate goal, the Narada-bhakti-sutra is essential.
The first part of Narada-bhakti-sutra contains the commentary of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, recognized by scholars and spiritual leaders worldwide as the most distinguished teacher of Indian culture and philosophy of the modern age. The latter part has been explained by Satsvarupa dasa Goswami, one of Srila Prabhupada’s senior disciples and the author of more than two dozen books on bhakti.
