Pushtumarg Beliefs 

There is no single written “creed” or statement of Faith to summarize all Pushtimarg Sampradaya’s doctrinal tenants. The Pushtimarg is one of the many sects in the Hindu religion. Pushtimarg was founded by Shrimad Vallabhacharya Mahaprabhu. The history of Pushti Sampradaya is spread throughout world with respect to place, about 525 years with respect to time and millions of devotees chosen by God out of His grace to perform His seva with respect to Jivas (beings).

Pushtimarg is spontaneous, selfless & motiveless love for God. It is based on pure love for God. It is expressed only through service of God - "Seva". It is love after realising God's true nature. The knowledge gained is not a means of liberation. Liberation, is considered secondary to the enjoyment of God's bliss. Its aim is God's happiness. No caste, creed, color, sex or age prevents one from attaining God's Grace. It does not know any boundaries, be it time, place or anything else.

Shri Krishna is the supreme God, all the other deities reside in his form. Therefore total faith is placed in Shri Krishna alone. In the state of liberation the entity of the devotee merges into God's blissful form, but in Bhakti (especially Pushti bhakti) the devotee does not seek liberation but he enjoys God's bliss by participating in it as a separate divine entity.
