Bhakti Marga

Definition - What does Bhakti Marga mean?

Bhakti Marga is the name of an international organization that promotes the spiritual path of devotion known as Bhakti yoga, which itself is sometimes also referred to as bhakti marga. The name comes from the Sanskrit, bhakti, meaning “devotion,” “devotional service” or “homage,” and marga, which means “pathway,” “path,” “route” or “passage.”

Bhakti Marga was founded by Paramahamsa Vishwananda in 2005 as both a mission and a community of believers who share and support one another on their path to salvation.

Yogapedia explains Bhakti Marga

Bhakti is one of the main spiritual paths in Hinduism, the others being Jnana (path of knowledge) and Karma (the path of action). As the path of love and devotion, Bhakti does not focus on one specific deity, but the individual's personal god and oneness with this supreme being and the universe.

The Bhakti Marga mission promotes the spiritual path of love for God, the Ultimate Reality, through ashrams, temples, sadhana (spiritual practices), books, music, special events and the Bhakti Marga Academy.

The sadhana includes mantras, meditation, asanas and Atma Kriya yoga, which is the most advanced practice in Bhakti Marga. Atma Kriya yoga is a complex, powerful meditation that allows the guru masters to directly transmit spiritual energy to the yogi.
