When everything ends with Jnana,where is the question of Bhakthi which
means separation or Dvaita Bhava?
praNAms Sri Srikanta prabhuji
Yes, you are right when everything ends in Atmaikatva jnAna there is no
room to think about dvaita bhakti which makes clear difference between
bhakta & bhagavanta. But in advaita the term bhakti has been used little
bit differently. If you see the geeta bhAshya shankara clearly says
teshAm jnAni nitya yuktaH, eka bhaktiH vishishyate. Here there is no
dvaita bhakti, there is absolutely no difference between bhakta &
bhagavanta...he is 'nitya yukta'. tattva vitvAt nitya yuktaH bhavati,
ekabhaktishcha anyasya bhajaneeyasya adarshanAt ataH saH ekabhaktiH
vishishyate..shankara clarifies further in that bhAshya. This is called
parAbhakti wherein there is no difference between kshetrajna and Ishwara
bheda, and this is what is called highest bhakti in the 18th chapter of
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
