Bhakti-yoga

From original by Peter Akkermans via Wikipedia

Bhakti-yoga is the dharma (sacred duty) of pure devotion and surrender to God as understood in Hinduism. It may involve the use of images depicting a favored deity, believed to be a manifestation of a unified Godhead. Some Hindus say this is the highest path in yoga, while others maintain that jnana-yoga is supreme.

From Wikipedia:

The Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavata Purana and Puranas[2] are important scriptures which expound the philosophy of Bhakti.[3] Hindu movements in which bhakti is the main practice are called bhakti movements—the major schools are Shaivism, Vaishnavism, and Shaktism.
