Preface

The path of devotion is very sacred and sublime. Love which is spontaneous is the essential core of this path that leads to ultimate fruition of human consciousness. Bhakti is most easy. Yet still aspirants find it very difficult. The Problems is not with the path. In fact it deals with your understanding. Once this understanding comes the path becomes easy to travel on.

What is so difficult then? It is said god created man in his image. This does not mean that God looks like you. If this is what you understand when the scriptures say god created man in his image then you are mistaken. And this will create problems for you along the path. If this be true then just like you god should have many religions many colors, shapes, gender, and nationalities etc. Mystics say it is not so. God has no form, no shape. He is both far and near. Certain attributes such as compassion or love, harmony, understanding only it can be said…! Also there comes a deep understanding of the cosmic law only then can it be said that you are in the image of God.

Secondly the consciousness that is given to you in its purest form is now encaged in the domain of senses! Your energy moves only through the lower centers and thus does not reach the heart centre. This energy needs to reach this center before devotion could be possible and overflow may happen.

Because of all this you continue to impose your wishes. You want everything to happen your way. Everything happens in this cosmos in a unique way. There exists a synergetic harmony. Hindus refer to this as the unheard uncreated cosmic sound of AUM. You need to flow in harmony with this cosmic harmony. Buddha says the moment you accept all that is happening that very moment you are enlightened or it can be said you attain to realization. This is the key to devotion.

The present treatise is an overflow by Taoshobuddha on the Bhakti Sutras of Sage Narad. Narad takes an aspirant along the path. The path of devotion of devotion runs through the entire spiritual traditions of the Aryans as a glimmering stream of golden effulgence soaked in ecstasy. The path contains the songs of lament and joy. The entire Puranic Literature is aglow with emotions of love for the lord; many paths are there. Krishna concludes that whichever path an aspirant may follow ultimately he will reach him.

Scriptures narrate a traditional story where Sage Narad meets the sage Veda Vyas on the banks of river Saraswati and how Narad makes Vyas accept that the path of Knowledge alone is dry and sapless. He also explains how without devotion for the Lord and his glories spiritual seeking is futile and without joy. Vyas accepted this and undertook to write the portrayal of Krishna as Bhagavantam. In the light of this it is clear that even through he might not have composed these sutras yet still it is right to dedicate these sutras to Narad.

As the greatest champion of the path of devotion this wandering saints an eternal devotee of Sri Narayana. Narad alone can instruct an aspirant along this path of love. Maybe through this we develop courage of conviction to life this divine love and thus come to explore fulfillment through this overflow.

In the beginning of creation god became unmanifest and thus you came into existence. And yet still god remains unmanifest hidden in his entire creation. The seed that can transform your being from the present state of chaos is hidden within you. All you need to do is to manifest all those attributes that are the quality of God and remain unmanifest through your being and actions. This is the attainment of devotion. Where do you seek me, O Feel, I am within you!

I am reminded of an anecdote. Many centuries ago there were two friends. One was blind and the other lame. Together they lived and sought alms for their livelihood. Both were devotees. The blind would carry the lame on his shoulders the lame would give directions. One day a fight broke between them over a trivial matter as normally happens around us. The two beat up one another. Blood stained the two remained uncared for. God felt compassionate and decided to help them alleviate their problems so he came or earth. That was the time when god used to visit the earth and his disciples regularly. So first he went to the blind man consoled him and took care of him. He asked him that if he had any wish. He would certainly fulfill it. Then god went to the lame man and in his usual way took care of him. To him too he asked to seek a boon. Do you know what did these two once friends and still devotees ask god? The blind man said, if you are really pleased with my prayers and worship and want to grant a boon please make the lame man blind as well this is his punishment. God got surprised. He then decided to ask the lame man what he wanted as his boon. On being asked the lame man said O father! If you are really pleased with my prayers and want to grant me a boon then please cut off the legs of the blind man so that he cannot walk. I do not seek anything for me. This is the only boon I seek of you. This is the way we pray. You can see this happening around you.

Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
