For the Devil, the presence of learned one is by far more painful than a thousand worshipers.
I ask myself why do these worshipers of this God want to convict him of being such a crummy designer - most of his creations die off, the rest suffer miserably; of being cruel and capricious and bungling and incompetent and callous as a father?

Devotion ( bhakti ) effectively spans and reconciles the seemingly disparate aims of obtaining aid in solving worldly problems and locating one’s soul in relation to divinity . The term bhakti is derived from a root that literally means “having a share”; devotion unites without totally merging the identities of worshipers and deities .
