Bhakti yoga is the path of the heart that sublimates emotion into devotion. Prabhuji leads us through a devotional evolution that begins with the experience of a personal God and culminates in the unity of the lover and the beloved. With astounding insight and erudition, he describes a process that makes what is mundane divine, what is material spiritual, and transforms worldly attachments into transcendental love.
This yoga path reveals that love is the perfume that emanates from our own presence, here and now. It is not an emotion or a feeling; it is the very essence of what we are. Bhakti is the purest and most elevated love. It arises from the depths of consciousness and the silence of meditation.
Prabhuji is a writer, painter, Krishnaite devotee, avadhūta mystic, the creator of Retroprogressive Yoga, and a realized spiritual master. When he was eight years old, he had a mystical experience that motivated his search for the Truth, or the Ultimate Reality. This transformed his life into an authentic inner and outer pilgrimage. He has dedicated more than fifty years to the exploration and practice of different religions, philosophies, paths of liberation, and spiritual disciplines. He has absorbed the teachings of great yogis, pastors, rabbis, monks, gurus, philosophers, sages, and saints whom he personally visited during his years of searching. For Prabhuji, awakening at the level of consciousness, or the transcendence of the egoic phenomenon, is the next step in humanity’s evolution. Prabhuji has chosen to retire from society and lead the life of a hermit. He spends his days in solitude, praying, studying, writing, painting, and meditating in silence and contemplation.
