  1. It is well known in educational psychology that human beings have 3 capabilities (cognitive, pyschomotor and affective). When and individual becomes a devotees a new knowledge ( concerning sambhandam abhideya and prayojana) guides how he applies his affect. The affective capability was existing prior the introduction of this new knowedge and faith in it. If the person was to completely abandon this new knowledge, his or her affective capability remains. What then if the difference between Bhakti and affective capabilty ?

  2. So if it is 100% purified affection what does this mean? It is well known that (Bhakti or not) humans have 3 domains of capability. Cognitive, psychomotor and affective. So if Bhakti is 100% purified affection, how can we show that it is inherited? Or is it the orientation alone inherited ?
