What does the popular Sanskrit term bhakti mean? Is it a self-evident concept? With an acknowledgment of complexity and variety this book helps to grasp the essential meaning and various dimensions of a God-experience and its implication for a transformed and transforming life. Taking the famous figures Jesus and Krsna, as presented by two popular texts (St. John's Gospel and the Rasalila section), two distinctive bhakti frameworks are analysed and compared. Any bhakti experience does not happen in a vacuum and Jesus and Krsna were not only multifaceted figures but also they went through a long process of ascendency to divine supremacy. For those who want to understand bhakti this book might prove to be an engaging guide. Printed Pages: 220.
