How to use bhakti in a sentence
But there now arose the doctrine of bhakti (devotion), which resolved religion into emotion.
A very striking characteristic of modern Hinduism is what is termed bhakti, or devotion.
The attempt to make religion consist of emotion without thought, of bhakti without jnana, had disastrous issues.
Bhakti, then, is simply the designation for fervour in worship or in presence of the Deity, as it appears in Hinduism.
That ecstatic adoration is religion for many millions of India, although the name bhakti may never pass their lips.
