Sri Ramakrishna declared that for this Age of Kali-the Iron Age- when people are very much attached to their bodies and hence to physical pleasures, the simple path of bhakti or devotion taught by Narada is the most efficacious path to perfection.
This brochure is a systematic summary of the wellknown work of Narada-the Narada Bhakti Sutras-translated from the original Kannada version entitled Narada Bhakti Sutragalu-Ondu Adhyayana. We are grateful to Prof. C.V. the translator, for his labour of love and to Sri Nataraj of Sri Nithyananda Printers, Bangalore. We hope that this booklet too will be welcomed by the lovers of our religion and culture, as the earlier ones.
