Stress, anxiety, depression etc keeps on tormenting us every moment. ‘Loving Relationship’ which was once the foundation of our society lies in shambles. Today the meaning of family has changed, meaning of society has changed, parent child relationship has got a new meaning, now marriage does not last life – long, old age homes have sprung up and several other unpleasant situations baffles us.
But amidst all these chaos there is a hope for all. If someone takes shelter of a banyan tree in the scorching heat then he experiences great relief. ‘Bhakti Våiksha’ is just like a huge banyan tree whose nectarine leaves of devotional ecstasy provides soothing shelter to those who are torn apart by material miseries.
