Discourse of Sadguru Shree Aniruddha
(Thursday. 22 December 2022)
This is the first of the Pravachans by Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu on Devotional Sentience, which he has explained with the help of Narada Bhakti Sutras.
Defining the meaning of the word ‘Sutra’, Sadguru Aniruddha then mentions and describes the three schools of thought in India:
iii) Vishisht Advaita
With these, Sadguru Bapu clarifies how the Formless and One with form are the same.
Importantly, here, Bapu tells why he has chosen Narada Bhakti Sutras to explain Devotion Sentience or Bhaktibhav Chaitanya.
Further, Sadguru Aniruddha pinpoints as to which is the portion of God within us.
Later, Sadguru Bapu divulges how he came to call Bhaktibhav Chaitanya by this name and why he has preferred Devarshi Narada to explain it.
Then, narrating the story of how Narada became the first of the Brahmarshis among Gods from an ordinary person, Bapu reveals how it happened.
At the end of the story, Bapu tells all Shraddhavans, “I love you in the same way as my mother loves me”. He then tells us why once we enter Bhaktibhav Chaitanya, even if we lose our way, we will be brought back on the right path.
