The Five Worshipful Moods #318
In the revered lineages of Vaishvavism, the teaching of five, sweet inner moods is brought forth for choosing by the aspiring devotee of the Lord. Called bhavas in the tradition, in this conjunction the many meanings of that word refer to an attitude of dedicated worship that the committed devotee vows to take on and fulfill. Just one of these bhavas, if taken seriously and worked into daily life, causes a positive transformation to accompany all thoughts and actions over time. Here, on this wisdom chart, the five devotional moods are set out for study and selection, accompanied by quotes from Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, who has found this loving discipline to be of beneficial effectivity for this day and age.
