Question: If Lord Buddha was an avatar of Lord Vishnu, then why did he not talk about Bhakti? Swami Mukundananda enlightens us with an astoundingly simple answer: the teacher may be P.H.D. but if the student is in grade 1, the teacher will only teach 2+2=4. It does not mean that the teacher only knows that much. It means that the student can only understand that much.
At the time of Lord Buddha in India, people had become too ritualistic and were misinterpreting the Vedic scriptures. Lord Buddha’s message accordingly was that – the wise should purify the heart; find out how to purify your heart. Even in the Bible, a statement comes that meant – I have so many more things to tell you, but you can’t hear them now. Any prophet who comes teaches according to time place and circumstance. So, the time, place and circumstance demanded that Lord Buddha not speak of Bhakti.
