Bhakti means "love and devotion". Also known as the Path of Love-Devotion, Bhakti Yoga is a spiritual approach that stresses all-surrendering love and devotion as the principal means of union with God.
Bhakti should not be confused with common emotional and sentimental demonstrations of "love" and "devotion". Babuji writes: "As regards bhakti, so far as my inner reading goes, I can safely say that what people generally think to be bhakti is only flattery in the real sense. In fact, real bhakti is widely different from flattery. It is simple attachment, strong and irrevocable attachment, to the Divine."
Sahaj Marg adopts a holistic approach to Yoga - Bhakti Yoga is one of its components.
