Bhakti-yoga refers to the process of awakening our inherent spiritual nature through practices of love and dedication. Many different processes of yoga are given in the Vedic texts but the path of bhakti is most peculiar because although it is described as the highest path and the final goal of all other forms of yoga, it is also said to be the most accessible and easy to practise.

In Srimad Bhagavad Gita when Krishna begins his teachings of bhakti-yoga he says,

raja-vidya raja-guhyam pavitram idam uttamam
pratyaksavagamam dharmyam susukham kartum avyayam 

“Know this to be the king of secrets, the king of knowledge, supreme, pure, and imperishable. It is known by direct realisation, it is the perfection of religion, and very easy to practise.”

While other forms of yoga require some previous knowledge, experience, or physical ability, bhakti-yoga can be practised by anyone who simply has a heart and an aspiration for a higher way of life. Furthermore, it is stated that whatever can be attained through great effort by the practise of other yogas—namely, mastership of body, mind, and senses—will be very easily achieved by the practise of bhakti-yoga. Not only that, but a positive prospect is also offered: a life of love with the divine in the eternal, dynamic, spiritual plane.

Krishna sings in Bhagavad-gita,

yat karosi yad asnasi yaj juhosi dadasi yat
yat tapasyasi kaunteya tat kurusva mad-arpanam

“Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer in sacrifice, whatever you give, and whatever vow you may keep—do everything as an offering unto me.”

Simply by dovetailing our daily action with a conscious desire to connect with and satisfy our supreme source, we will naturally attain purification of body and mind and also realise our divine potential. Thus through the practice of bhakti-yoga, the most simple day-to-day duties like cooking, cleaning, driving, gardening, typing, and so on can become the most joyful and profound.
