Devotion

In devotion, one can experience total freedom from fear and worry. A devotee transcends worldly sorrows and pains.

A true devotee has no selfish desires, including the desire for liberation. Devotion in one's heart is kindled by the grace of the Guru, by being in the company of other devotees and by reading and listening to the stories of other devotees.
