Bhakti yoga describes the path of devotion. Seeing the divine in all of creation, bhakti yoga is a positive way to channel the emotions. The path of bhakti provides us with an opportunity to cultivate acceptance and tolerance for everyone we come into contact with.
Bhakti yogis express the devotional nature of their path in their every thought, word and deed – whether taking out the trash or calming the anger of a loved one. The life and work of Mother Teresa epitomizes the combination of the karma and bhakti yoga paths with her self-less devotion to serving others.
While it can be daunting to hold ourselves up to the image of Mother Teresa or Mahatma Gandhi, the take home is worth the (non-judgmental) comparison.
