For genuine sincere seekers, devotional life should not be rushed to bhav stage (Read 9 stages of devotional life) on social media as is the trend all around, unfortunately.
Many reels and social media culture show direct Prema and Rasa without the seekers taking to elementary process like bhajan kriya, sadhu sang, anartha nivritti (Read 9 stages of devotional life) as taught by bonafide Acharyas like Srila Prabhupada and Six Goswamis.
Sincere seekers should definitely read this article 'Vaidhi Bhakti & Raganuga Bhakti' to understand the intricacies and poor impact of artificial imitation of bhakti. It is not helpful to the conducive benefit of seekers if they indulge in cheap acts of fictitious displaying their love for likes, views, appreciation and praises.
Our Guru Acharya Shishya Parampara teach about humility, and always feeling oneself most unqualified. Without taking shelter of bonafide Guru Shishya Parampara, it is just cheap entertainment and not devotion as it is being attempted to be portrayed.
How to approach spiritual life in the right manner?
- Understanding that our knowledge is incomplete.
- Then, scrutinising the texts and taking shelter of bonafide Guru Shishya Parampara. Srila Prabhupada book's foundation is very imp for any genuine sincere seeker (Download Authentic Free PDF of Vedic Scriptures here). Everything is there, including the knowledge to bypass all the wrong teachings, especially of subtle mayavada that is being spread. Our Acharya Parampara were very strict regarding this!!
- Chanting 16 rounds of Hare Krishna Mahamantra daily to come to a platform to appreciate devotional life in true terms.
- Following 4 regulative principles of no meat eating, no drinking, no illicit sex, no gambling to become a good human being first, leave apart devotional life!
There are many further crucial and very very important points. If Sriji inspires you, do read in the ‘Beginners Spirituality Guide’ article!
Jai Jai Shri Radhe!
