Bhakti and the three gunas of nature
Rajas bhakti simply focuses on the fulfillment of our material desires, which usually include money and fame. It should not be a surprise that this mode of worship is the most popular on earth. Bhakti becomes sattvic when we worship for the sake of worshipping and enter the desire-free mode. Interestingly, this is not the final level of devotion. When our continuous remembrance eliminates the separation between our soul and Brahman, Bhakti can be classified as Nirguna (devoid of gunas). This is the kind that gives mukti (liberation).
The Ramayana continues to tell us that Nirguna Bhakti can give us salokya, sameepya, sarishti, or sayujya mukti. While salokya refers to residence in the abode (loka) of Rama (or our favorite form of Brahman), sameepya means proximity to Rama. Similarly, sarishti refers to achieving majesty on a par with the Lord, and sayujya refers to complete merger in Rama.
