Bhakti Shatak Week At RGD

February 1, 2019 / Posted by in nyblog

At a recent devotional program at Radha Govind Dham, Devotees got to experience yet another week full of the blissful divine knowledge and soulful chanting. Swami Nikhilanand Ji, an eminent disciple of Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj, shared the treasure of the devotional knowledge in the couplets from the famous Bhakti Shatak series. Composed by His Guru, Bhakti Shatak (or 100 verses on devotion) is a clear and concise description of the complete philosophy of the devotional path for the seeker of Divine Love. These verses are written in a simple, poetic form and explain the deepest philosophy of the scriptures like the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, the Brahma Sutras and Bhagwatam. During the course of the week, Swamiji sang and explained the meaning of some of the verses imbued with the deep philosophy of the scriptures. Some of the concepts he shared were the personality of absolute supreme God, the nature of the soul, the nature of maya, the grace of a true Saint, details of the devotional path – different kinds of Devotion(Bhakti), the supreme and blissfully enchanting nature of Radha Krishna’s divine love and Leelas. 

Another highlight of the event was the day-long Bhakti Shatak intensive where Devotees chanted all 100 verses on Saturday. Devotees found the experience spiritually immersive and enjoyed the soul-stirring kirtans. A special thanks to all the Devotees who lovingly participated, helped in organizing the event, preparing the delicious dishes for Prasad and making this event a success. 

Radhey Radhey!
