In this study, the author discusses the sadhana presented by the Bhagavatapurana and this is essentially the bhaktimarga, the way of love. After some preliminary remarks about the Puranas in general and the Bhagavata-purana in particular, the author attempts to describe the sadhaka (man as a pilgrim), the sadhya (God as the Supreme Lover), and the sadhana (bhakti as the universal and the most effective way to attain God). The book then draws the attention of the reader to the possible obstacles he may encounter in his spiritual journey, while at the same time assuring him that the guidance of a good guide, the fellowship of other devotees and some other aids will assist him in his pilgrimage. Love is not only the way, but also the goal (prayojana), and hence the study concludes by presenting moksa as sa-prema-bhakti-yoga, that is a union of loving devotion, between God and man, Bhagavan and his bhakta.
