In The Essence of Bhakti yoga has been laid out in great detail the course of Bhakti Yoga from start to finish. Every milestone had been clearly indicated. Every next step towards the goal has been carefully guided. Every chance of getting into despondency has been eliminated and by going into minute details, every effort has been made to rescue the despondent soul.

Bhakti Yoga is not without its method, though it is the method of striking the fountain of emotional sweetness and rightly guiding the leaping nectar of devotional striving. Properly canalised it leads to speedy self-fulfillment. As such, Bhakti Yoga is a hidden science.

To shed light on this difficult science is beyond the powers of the intellect and the imagination, and is possible only for one who has experimented the principles of this science on himself and realized its truths.

The essence of Bhakti Yoga coming as it does from the inspired pen of Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj is, therefore, a rare opportunity for the reading public and the surest guide for the Bhakti Yogi aspirant. It unfolds in the simplest language the secrets of the emotions of “Bhakti” or divine Love. It analyses the whole psychology of Bhakti and explains the significance of every element of it. It gives ample guidance in the difficult art of building those elements, which constitute the psychosis of God-consciousness. It makes the practice of god’s Presence easy.
