Jay Shri Krishna. There is one thing in common among all four types of Bhakt,their ultimate goal is Bhagavan,but the difference is in interaction with Bhagavan and Bhakt. Tamas Bhakt- some times differs with Bhagavan and does arguments. Rajas Bhakt- he likes to serve Bhagavan with costly dresses-ornaments-Chapan Bog etc. Satvik Bhakt- He considers Bhagavan has the superium and himself as sevak. Nirgun Bhakat-For him Bhagavan is the only goal.Except Bhagavan's likings he will not do any thing else.He never thinks of personal desire. There are sub divisions in Tamas,Rajas,and Satvik gun.1)Tamas-Tamas 2)Tamas-Rajas 3)Tamas-Satvik 4)Rajas-Tamas 5)Rajas-Rajas 6)Rajas-Satvik 7)Satvik-Tamas 8)Satvik-Rajas 9)Satvik-Satvik and10)Nirgun. Dattubhai.

Jai shri krishna, Both the answers are correct, and let me put my answer. but it is in gujarati. Nirgun bhavpradhan bhakt : je bhakt nu jivan bhavpradhan hoy ane tena pariname temnama kriya nu pradhanya ochhu hoy. temna hraday ma evi alaukik bhav sthiti pragat thai hoy chhe ke jethi bhavatmak prabhu sada temna hraday ma biraji anek lila no anubhav karave chhe.Pariname bahya kriya ni avashyakta raheti nathi. ShriMahaprabhuji temne "sarvottam" bhagvadiya kahe chhe. Tamas bhavpradhan bhakt : je bhakto ma prabhu pratye kam bhav chhe etle ke "prabhu mara chhe, tethi hu prabhu na sukh mate seva ma tatpar chhu" eva bhav vala bhakto ma kriya nu pradhanya vadhare chhe. ane seva mate no dradh agrah rahe chhe. Rajas bhavpradhan bhakt : Rajas bhav pradhan bhakt potana tan ane dhan no prabhu na sukh mate viniyog karavta pota na gharma birajta prabhu ne vividh prakare lad ladavano voshesh agrah hoy chhe. satvik bhavpradhan bhakt : Satvik bhavpradhan bhakto vishesh karine bhagvad katha shravan, kirtan, gun-gan, smaran ane chintan ma aasakt hoy chhe.

KINDS OF DEVOTION: Because of differences in temperament, Guna and paths four kinds of devotion are chiefly narrated in Sri Bhagavata Purana. 1. Sttvika Devotion 2. Rjasa Devotion 3. Tamasa Devotion and 4. Nirguna Devotion. 1. Sattvika-Devotion: Devotion in Shri Krishna guided by the inclination for destroying sins, for making dedication of the fruits of actions; or as an inevitable duty --is called “Sattvika-Devotion”. 2. Rajasa-Devotion: Devotion in Shri Krishna for obtaining wealth and affluence or for excellent worlds like heaven etc., or for obtaining praise and power is called “Rajasa-Devotion”. 3. Tamasa-Devotion: Devotion in Shri Krishna with evil sentiments like to do harm to others, to deceive people by making a show of devotion or for the sake of jealousy etc. is called “Tamasa-Devotion”. 4. Nirguna-Devotion: Devotion in Shri Krishna without having desire to obtain any kind of fruit and by concentrating mind in the Supreme-Being Bhagavan Sri Krsna is called Nirguna-Devotion. That uninterrupted and continious motion of the mind, towards HIM (GOD) Who resides in the hearts of all, free from the impediments created by the Vedas and Smritis. Like the flow of the GANGES (GANGA), which makes its way through mountains etc, and goes to the sea, is called Nirgun Bhakti. Love of Gopies for Shri Krishna is best described as PREM LAKSHANA BHAKTI. by our Shri Vallabh. Nirguna-Devotion is also known by the name of ‘Ahaituki’ or ‘Animitta’ devotion. A wish to obtain any kind of fruit is called Hetu or Nimitta. Devotion in which there is no Hetu or Nimitta of any kind is called ‘Ahaituki’ or ‘Animitta’ devotion. Shri Vallabhacharya has preferably preached Nirguna-devotiona by the name of ‘Pusti-devotion’-- to which Bhagavan has considered as the best in Bhagavata Purana. Nirguna-Pusti-devotion is the best of its kinds. Narrating the excellence of Nirguna-Pusti-Devotion in Sri Bhagavata Bhagavan says: Though my Nirguna devotees consider my worship as the very fruit, do not ask for any kind of liberation from me. But when I bestow upon them liberation-- in the form of Salokya-Mukti, Sarsti-Mukti, Samipy-Mukti or Sayujy-Mukti with love, on my own accord --my devotees are not ready to accept any kind of liberation at the cost of my service. This itself is recognized as ‘Bhakti-Yoga’ of ultimate type and as independent fruit. By this Bhakti-Yoga the devotee becomes free from the influences of all the three Guna and attains devout sentiment as the final fruit. Jai Shri Krishna Go to Top of Page
