VI. The three Stages on the Spiritual Path

Fill your heart with one-pointed devotion and God will reveal himself within you. Then you will see him as he truly is. In time, you will merge with him and become one with him.


Embodiments of Love,

There are three principal stages that you must follow on the spiritual path in order to reach your spiritual goal. They have been described in a number of different ways in the Gita. At the end of the 11th chapter, wherein Lord Krishna gives Arjuna the vision of his cosmic form, you will find the three stages presented as follows:

  • First, you must know that God is here.
  • Then you must have a direct vision of him.
  • Finally, you must merge with him.

These three steps will lead you to liberation.
