A Call to Go Beyond Bhakti…

by host4kfn

It is a well known fact that Hinduism recognises three paths to moksha, namely, the Karma marga, the Jnana marga and the Bhakti marga.

In fact the parable in Matthew 13:1-23 is focused on the condition of the soils and not on the condition or the characteristics of the sower. The parable of sower/soils is a very popular one unfortunately […]
