Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji answers to questions from devotees
Question: Who are Siddhas, Muktas and Bhaktas?
Bhaktas are those who have unflinching love for God with Form. Merely through their love for God they attain to the state of Samadhi and remaining in the state of Jnana which is beyond pairs of opposites like heat-cold, honour-dishonour they spend their time in the thought of God, singing His praises/Names and listening /reading /narrating His stories. Their devotion seeks no fulfillment of desires and removal of sorrows : it seeks not even Liberation. Being in the state of Jnana they remain devoted only due to their love for God. Lord Krishna, in Bhagavad Gita, has given the assurance that He will take care of the needs of such devotees! Those like Namdev, Tukaram are great Bhaktas.
