Welcome to Bhakti Marga South Africa
Bhakti Marga is a path of devotion – a journey from the mind to the heart where we encounter true Love and our Divine Self. True Love is Unconditional Love from and for the Divine. The bhakti path is centred around developing a personal relationship with the Divine in such a way that unconditional acceptance of oneself blossoms and pure love flows to others. As this Divine Love arises within, so does the self-confidence to apply it in everyday life.
Connected to the worldwide Bhakti Marga community, Bhakti Marga in South Africa supports Swami Vishwananda in his mission to spread Bhakti to humanity. Sri Swami Vishwananda has been giving darshan and visiting South Africa since 2002. He loves South Africa and continues to touch the lives of many in our country. All are welcome to share in this amazing spiritual journey.
