About Shri Naarad Bhakti Sutra

The Naarad Bhakti Sutra is a well-known scripture in Hinduism and its creation is attributed to Sage Naarad. In Hindu mythology, sage Naarad, the son of Lord Brahma, is often described as a learned but mischievous character. The scripture starts off by defining true bhakti (devotion) and focusses relentlessly on giving up of worldly desires. It also describes the methods to obtain true bhakti by being a selfless servant of the Lord and chanting his Holy name. The scripture also details the items a true bhakt should abstain from, like dealings with others who indulge in sinful habits. It winds up by saying that anyone who practices true bhakti will attain unification with the Almighty.
