The real path to please God is practical devotion, which is sacrifice and service to God


Knowledge is the root cause that generates the devotion by which the practice results that leads to the fruit. The knowledge of various places of attraction in Mumbai city generates lot of force of anxiety to reach and see Mumbai and such force on intensification results in the action of journey to Mumbai by which the fruit of seeing Mumbai is achieved. Similarly, the knowledge of God (goal) generates anxiety to reach God and get His grace to God by which the grace of God is achieved. 1) First, you must know (Jnana Yoga) that you are not the very Mumbai city (God) and that you are a human being only different from Mumbai city (God). If you are already the Mumbai city (God), you need not develop anxiety and interest (Devotion or Bhakti Yoga) that results in practical effort (Karma Yoga) to reach the city (God). All this is knowledge of yourself. 2) Then, you must know about the details of God that God is unimaginable, but, mediated in human form for the sake of humanity and human incarnation alone is relevant to humanity. All this is the knowledge of God or goal. 3) Then, you must know that the real path to please God in human form is not only mere knowledge and not only mere theoretical devotion. The real path to please God is knowledge based-theoretical devotion based-practical devotion, which is sacrifice and service to God.


The knowledge of these three steps is called as knowledge of triad (Triputi Jnana). After having perfectness in the knowledge of these three steps only, practical devotion must be implemented, which leads you to the correct goal and achieve correct fruit. If such knowledge is incomplete or erroneous, you will travel in wrong path to reach wrong goal and get wrong fruit. Knowledge decides direction and right direction given by right knowledge alone gives you right goal. Your theoretical and practical devotions may be perfect and terrible, which are of no use if the direction given by knowledge is wrong. Even if devotion is weak, if the direction is correct given by right knowledge, you will certainly reach the right goal even slowly. If the goal is Delhi, even a fast runner running in the opposite direction reaches Chennai only and not Delhi. Even a normal walker in right direction reaches Delhi, may be after long time!
