The worshipers of Lord Krishna, claim no allegiance to any particular religion, but only continue developing pure, unalloyed bhakti, love of God, through the practice of devotional service, bhakti-yoga. When this fully manifests as prema, such a pure relationship becomes so intense that there is no awareness of anything else. In this pure consciousness, there is no question of being Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, or being affected by any other distinction. There is only God and the lovers of God on the spiritual platform, all of whom are absorbed in sublime and boundlessly ecstatic, loving exchanges.
The Supreme is waiting for us to return to our spiritual position to engage in these spiritual activities. How long it takes for us to return to our spiritual home simply depends on how long we allow ourselves to be influenced or controlled by the material impulses and desires which bind us to this material existence. We should not feel that we are so sinful or fallen that we have no hope for developing our spiritual relationship with the Supreme, for He is always waiting for His lost servants. But we have to begin to show that we want to return to Him by rising above bodily identifications and realizing the science of the soul: our real identity.
The essence of this portal is pure spiritual identity and spiritual experience that we share with Lord Krishna, the only Supreme Being of this Universe. This spiritual identity is the underlying principle of unity amongst all living entities. Re-awakening this identity and love is the ultimate purpose of this portal. And this is most easily attained through the process of bhakti-yoga, the yoga of love of God.

Bhairava Stotram - Translated by P.R.Ramachande
Bhairava Stotram - By Saint Abhinava Guptha Translated by P.R.Ramachander
(Abhinava Guptha was one of the very great saints of Kashmir Saivism. He lived most probably before Adhi Shankara .Some people believe that ADhi Sankara met him and he was defeated in argument. This great prayer was composed by him just before his death. It seems chanting this prayer he entered called BHirava Guha , never to come out again.The Sanskrit original of this prayer is available in http://www.kamakotimandali.com/blog/index.php?p=1026&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1
And a commentary in English of this prayer is available in
He who is involved in the consciousness of
Moving and non moving beings who are spreadeverywhere,
Who is divine , only one , endless and primeval,
Who is Lord Bhairava who is the support of all orphans ,
I salute him who is in my mind with all my heart.
2.THwan maya methadha seshamidhaanim,
Bhathi mama thwad anugraha sakthyaa,
THwam cha mahesa sadaiva mamathma ,
Swathma mayam mama thena samastham.
At the present time , you are completely spread in me,
And to me it appears that with your power of blessing,
You are always the greatest god who has filled up,
My soul which is completely full of yourself.
3.Swathmani viswaghe they thwayi naadhe,
THena na samsruthi bheethi kadha asthi,
SAthswapi durdhara dukha vimoha,
THrasa vidhayishu karma ganeshu.
In this world you are the lord of my soul,
And because of that there is no fear in my existence ,
And due to that I am not afraid of difficulties and sorrow,
Which are resulting from this cycle of birth and death
Oh Lord Shiva , it is true that penance, charity,
Bath in sacred waters and meditation breaks the pain of birth and death,
But the nectar like thought of your divine story,
Would wet the mind with ultimate salvation.
Abhinava Guptha wrote this great prayer ,
On the Dasami of the dark fortnight in the month of Pausha,
And due to this the Lord due to utmost compassion,
Quickly destroys all sufferings of people , as he is merciful.
Thus ends the prayer of nine stanzas written by Abhinava Guptha.
