Wise-Love (Book Review)

Wise-Love: Bhakti and the Search for the Soul of Consciousness by Pranada Comtois

Review by Jessica Jagtiani

Wise-Love: Bhakti and the Search for the Soul of Consciousness is a recent winner of the 2019 Montaigne Medal Award, Eric Hoffer Book Award, a 2018 National Indie Excellence Award in the Spirituality category, a finalist for the 2018 Body/Mind/Spirit Book of the Year by Foreword Indies, and the 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

In her book, Pranada Comtois, devoted practitioner and teacher of the bhakti yoga tradition, takes her reader on an educational and self-reflective journey through the subtleties of bhakti yoga philosophy and practice. Her intention in writing the book is to demystify bhakti and to engage the reader in self-exploration, in order to awaken a deeper awareness of bhakti that can be applied to the contemporary world. Pranada defines bhakti as a state of being that she calls Wise-Love, or the yoga of heartfulness: “it is a movement from head to heart, with a harmonizing and integration of both, based on well-reasoned love.”
