Could you please explain this a bit more? People often say jnana is the
foundation, and that bhakti merely helps purify us, and so on.
tyajedajnAna nirmAlyaM sOham bhAvena poojayet. An advaita sAdhaka would
not see any significant valley between paramAtma & himself. His bhAva is
that that which is being worshipped by him is in svarUpa nothing but HIM.
Moreover, even dvaita bhakti at the initial stages in advaita sAdhana too
plays an important role. By dedicating the karma phala to Ishwara,
sAdhaka would gradually develop the vairAgya and this vairAgya finally
leads him in the jnAna mArga. Hence, bhAkti is not an extraneous thing in
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
