Definition and Experiences of Bhava-bhakti

ASK BVKS | April 24, 2012 |

English;

Question:

If a karmi sees a picture of Radha Krsna and feels an emotion of joy, admiration, and appreciation of the picture, can this be called bhava-bhakti?

If a kanistha devotee who has faith in the supreme position of Krsna feels an emotion of joy love and appreciation when seeing the deities, can this be called bhava-bhakti?

Basically how can we define bhava-bhakti and can you experience it even when you have a mundane material consciousness?

More importantly how can a devotee transform his bhava-bhakti to suddha-bhakti?
