ORIGIN OF ‘BHAKTI’ IN RIG VEDA; 15 TYPES OF PRAYER! (Post.9250)

BHAKTI (devotion to God) MOVEMENT HAS ITS SEEDS IN THE RIG VEDA. NARADA BHAKTI SUTRAM DESRCIBED THE STAGES IN BHAKTI, I.E. DEVOTION TO GOD.  GREAT TAMIL SAINT APPAR ALIAS TIRU NAVUKKARASAR REPEATED IT IN HIS TEVARAM IN 600 CE. HE WAS CONTEMPORARY OF ANOTHER GREAT TAMIL SAINT TIRU JNANA SAMBANDAR. BOTH OF THEM CHANGED THE PICTURE OF TAMIL NADU BY WALIKNG THROUGH THE LENGTH AND BREADTH OF TAMIL NADU WIPING OUT BUDDISM AND JAINISM FROM TAMIL SPEAKING WORLD.

BUT BEFORE THIS, WE SEE BHAKTI YOGAM CHAPTER IN THE BHAGAVAD GITA. IF WE GO BY ADI SHANKARA’S DATING BY KANCHI PARAMACHARYA SWAMIJI, THEN ADI SHANKARA STATRED BHAKTI MOVEMENT IN THE PRE CHRISTIAN ERA. BUT THE SEEDS ARE LAID IN THE RIG VEDA.

If one goes through the prayers in the Rig Veda, one would understand all the points raised by later Bhakti poets are already in the oldest book in the world- The Rig Veda

IN TAMIL AND SANSKRIT BOOKS
