    Option 3 is the right answer.

    The Bhakti movement was a Hindu religious movement of the medieval period that promoted the belief that moksha was attainable by everyone and advocated that a personal expression of devotion to God is the way to become at one with Him.

    5 –  Condemnation of rituals, ceremonies and blind faith.

    6 –  Rejection of idol worship by many saints

    7 –  Open- mindedness about deciding religious matters.

    8 –  No distinction of different castes, higher or low

    9 –  Need of a guru for guidance advocated by some.
