Prem Prakash does a masterful job in translating the Bhakti Sutras (Bhakti yoga, is the yoga of love and devotion). Not only is the translation accurate, but insightful & heartfelt. This book is required reading just as Juan Muscaro's books are ("Bhagavad Gita" & "The Dhammapada"), and all the books by Sri Chinmoy.
The Narada Bhakti sutras were written very long ago compared to American history. This book explains in plain modern English the beautiful and complex sutras which present Narada's interpretation of worship through love. While it may not be possible to separate Indian culture from Indian worship, the author's translation and explanatory notes makes Bhakti worship accessible even to one who is unfamiliar with Hindu lore. Further, this book entices the reader to at least attempt to follow Bhakti philosophy and its form of worship.
