This module will lay the foundation for the rest of the course. What is Bhakti? We will explore Bhakti from the standpoint of dualistic and non-dual paths. We will examine the stages of progression of bhakti from a dualistic perspective to a non-dual one.
Having explored bhakti in the previous module, we will now delve into its elements. How can we engage with a deity through ritual or pūjā? What are the elements of ritual? What is the significance of each element? How must we approach the deity through each element?
