Bhakti (Sanskrit: भक्ति) is in Hinduism a term for religious devotion, understood as active involvement of a devotee in divine worship. The term is used within monotheistic Hinduism, referring to the love felt by the worshipper towards the personal God, a concept expressed in Hindu theology as Svayam Bhagavan. Bhakti can be used of either tradition of Hindu monotheism, Shaivaism or Vaishnavism.[ While bhakti as designating a religious path is already a central concept in the Bhagavad Gita, it rises to importance in the medieval history of Hinduism, where the Bhakti movement saw a rapid growth beginning in Southern India beginning in the 5th CE, who spread bhakti poetry and devotion throughout India by the 12th-18th century CE.
