A Living Theology of Krishna Bhakti

This chapter examines the concept of bhakti, which is based on the definition “devotion to a personal deity.” It tries to locate Prabhupada's expression of Chaitanyaite bhakti, and studies some of the issues relevant to scholars of the bhakti's pan-Indic influence. It also studies Chaitanya Vaishnavism, the idea of devotional service, and Prabhupada's own conception of bhakti. This chapter also introduces Rūpa Gosvāmin, his conception of bhakti, and his five principal practices of bhakti.

Keywords:   bhakti, devotion, personal deity, pan-Indic influence, Chaitanya Vaishnavism, devotional service, Rūpa Gosvāmin
