Bhakti breaks the knot of ignorance – Srimad Bhagavad Puran

For a man who has come into this world there is no other way more favorable than that which leads to steadfast devotion to Lord Vasudeva.

Whatever a man can obtain by rituals, penance, knowledge, renunciation, yoga, alms giving, or by other pious exercises, all that can be attained easily through Bhakti or devotion.

Devotion to Vasudeva is the best means to attain the highest goal of man. Just as the fire burns down the wood, just as the sun dispels the darkness, so too bhakti removes sin.

Bhakti breaks the knot of ignorance.

By Bhakti man can more easily overcome his nature, his natural inclinations, his senses.

Only when a man's heart is filled with love for the Lord, can he easily renounce the world, can he overcome all his desires.

In short, by bhakti man attains all those spiritual benefits made available to him by other spiritual means.
