On Monday, March 29th, actress/producer/talk show host Jada Pinkett Smith made a post on her Instagram about HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami and specifically his book, Spiritual Warrior.
Pinkett Smith says that she regards Bhakti Tirtha Swami as one of her teachers and she states, “This book got me all the way together” in her post. She urges others to check this book out and shares the following quote:
“The pursuit of excessive distinction, adoration, and profit is a symptom pointing to a lack of mastery over sexual energy. Unchecked, our egocentric desires can degrade into overt physical activities. Whenever we are focused on our own sovereign pleasure in the form of prestige, power, and personal gain, we tend to exploit others, seeing them as extensions of ourselves and using them for our own selfish gratification”
As of today, over 22,000 people liked this post and approximately 500 people havecommented.
Jada Pinkett Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith, is also a fan of Bhakti Yoga and recently released an album with Jahnavi Harrison called “Rise”. For more about this album please visit: https://jahnavimusic.com/js_albums/r-i-s-e/
