Bhaja Govindam is one place where Sri Shankara talks about the bhakti
mArga.. I think the text is on the advaita homepage.

When one talks about devotion, isn't there an implicit dualism
there? One might say, "I am devoted to my work" or "I am devoted to
rAma" but one doesn't say "I am devoted to myself."
Perhaps the list members can elaborate..
