What does Bhakti Sastri mean?
The term bhakti means “devotion” or “love”, and the term sastri refers to a person who is conversant with ancient sacred texts of spiritual knowledge and wisdom, known as sastra in the Sanskrit language. The title Bhakti Sastri is traditionally offered to accomplished students of the theology and philosophy of the Vedas. According to the Bhagavad-gita, texts that teach how to develop bhakti, love of God, the Supreme Soul Krishna, are the best.
