This little volume consists chiefly of extracts from letters written solely to meet an individual need and with no thought of publication. But in the heart of every true spiritual teacher there lives the Divine Teacher, and when His voice speaks, it is for all, not for one only. Believing that it is that voice which sounds through these words, the one to whom they were ad­ dressed desires to prove worthy of the message of unselfishness they contain, by sharing them with all others who perhaps in pain and weariness are striving along the path of devotion. They are therefore sent forth with the earnest prayer that they may bring to the soul of every sincere devotee who reads them the same help and comfort as they brought to the one who heard them first.

Bhakti-yoga, or the path of devotion, is based on the doctrine “Love is God and God is Love”. The Bhakti Yogi experiences separation and longs to meet or even just glimpse his beloved. Nothing else attracts him, nothing else holds his attention, all else is meaningless. Swami Vivekananda argues that Bhakti Yoga is the most direct and shortest way to experience the divine. There is nothing higher than love and Bhakti Yoga is the religion of love. Bhakti Yoga appeals particularly to those of an emotional nature. The Bhakti Yogi is motivated chiefly by the power of love and sees God as the embodiment of love. Through prayer, worship and ritual he surrenders himself to God, channelling and transmuting his emotions into unconditional love or devotion. Chanting or singing the praises of God form a substantial part of Bhakti Yoga.

Sage Narada is accepted as the primary guru of devotion in Indian tradition. His inspiration is the key reason in conception and subsequent writing of many devotional texts, including Bhagvat Purana. Narada has himself compiled Bhakti Sutra or devotional guidelines for devotees' benefit. It is a short and authoritative work on devotion which is very popular among devotees. In this text, he has established devotion as an independent and superior means of liberation. It is an independent path because it does not require the assistance of other paths like knowledge and action. This is also evident from the examples of several common persons, from all walks of life, who without knowing scriptures or performing their duties as per Vedas, have attained God by their love alone. And, the path of devotion is superior to every other path because it can be practiced by all, it is efficient, unfailing and the most enjoyable. And, it is preferred by God. After establishing the superiority of devotion, Narada describes the multiple ways to practice it so that anyone can achieve his supreme welfare. The path of devotion is quite flexible because a way can be chosen based on the interest, inclination, and habits of the seeker. Ultimately, it is only our intensity which matters to God. This path of love is sweeter than every other conceivable path. The devotees spread its fragrance at all the time, in all the directions, onto everyone whoever comes close to them. Imbibe it and experience the unbounded and ever-present love within.

The Way of the Holy Cross A Method of Performing the Devotion

The Way of the Cross means that space of ground which was travelled over by our Blessed Saviour, from the Governor's Hall, where he was condemned, to the top of Mount Calvary, where he finally expired upon that instrument of martyrdom; and the exercise of the way of the Cross consists in following this Divine Model along the traces which His blood has left, and meditating, meanwhile, upon the sufferings which his love caused Him to undergo there for our sake. According to a very credible tradition, this pious practice may be traced back to the earliest period of the Church, and the august Mother of God is said to have been the first to set the example. "During her latter years," says St. Andrew, of Crete, "she used to frequent incessantly those places where her Divine Son had been loaded with contumely and nailed to the cross." But why seek for written testimony? Doomed to sojourn as an exile upon the earth, away from Him, in whom she loved at once her Son and her God, how could her affectionate heart have been satisfied if she had not visited again and again the spots consecrated by the most memorable events in the life of her Beloved?—and Calvary, above all, where, standing by His side, she had sustained those inward sufferings which have caused her to be styled the Queen of Martyrs? How often must she have been seen, in the evening of her days, musing, with weeping eyes, along the road where her Son had passed, bearing the load of His cross!—and standing, overwhelmed with grief, on the heights where He expired! Fond and inconsolable Parent, she saw Him yet hanging by His wounded hands, His head crowned with thorns, His body mangled, pale, agonizing and dying, and in His agony casting a look from His dying eyes on her. It was here that she caught His last sigh—here, that she had seen the lance enter His heart—here, that she had received into her arms, and clasped to her bosom, His sacred body weltering in its blood. How could she do otherwise than recur often to such scenes, kissing, a thousand times, the earth which had been reddened with His blood, and watering it incessantly with her tears?
