Devotion, beyond all limitations
Narada Rsi describes bhakti as serving Krishna without ulterior motive and beyond all designations (upAdhi). Interestingly the word 'upAdhi' has many meanings covering everything from 'honourable title' to 'species' to 'deceit'. In all 'upAdhi' points to any factors of limitation or obstruction. Bhakti or devotion is the conscientious outpouring of devotion direct from the heart, nothing more -nothing less.
