Philosophy of Love Bhakti Sutras of Narada
Translated with a commentary by Hari Prasad Shastri
A classic text on the teaching that love rightly understood leads to higher knowledge.
The Sage Narada explains the nature of devotion in a series of aphorisms which are still applicable. A full and original commentary by the translator, Hari Prasad Shastri, brings out the meaning of the text in simple language that will be readily understood by those not conversant with Indian philosophy. Special emphasis is placed on the teaching that love leads to higher knowledge.
'Man must love something or somebody. If he does not love God - the Self of the Universe, the Essence of beauty, truth, goodness, freedom and majesty - he will love matter, power, fame and the passing and illusory beauty of form. Our happiness depends upon the nature of the object on which we set our heart.'
