Ten grave spiritual offences and pardonable are none; to criticise God and His saint is number one ...
An aspiring devotee must always be careful throughout his devotional life and during his devotional practice. Even the slightest carelessness can reduce all his efforts to zero. Due to carelessness, aspirants lose more than they gain from their practice. There are many obstacles that impede us on the devotional path. It is essential that we know what they are, and more importantly, how to proceed when they do. Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj discussed this subject on many occasions, urging practitioners to heed his words and ready themselves to move through the obstacles when they come with wisdom and poise.
Compiled from discourses given by Kripalu Ji, the common hindrances in devotion are discussed, so too the importance of remaining humble. Practices that help us elude non-godliness are described, and the importance of regular and systematic practice is emphasised. The book concludes with Kripaluji's unique explanation of namaparadha, the ten most grievous spiritual offences. All things considered, it makes for very powerful reading.
