- endeavors which by nature are not purely constituted of bhakti. The performer of aropa-siddha-bhakti imposes bhakti onto his activities, meaning he is performing an activity that isn’t one of the nine limbs of bhakti (navadhā-bhakti), or that isn’t pure enough to be classified as śuddha-bhakti, but he is thinking that his activity is bhakti. Examples of personalities performing āropa-siddhā-bhakti are: Hariścandra and Mahārāja Śibhi
