We have not been able to decide how to attain God. This means we have not yet attained true knowledge. True knowledge or correct understanding of the scriptures leads to a firm decision. Just as you realise yourself, I am, and this realisation always remains the same, after attaining true knowledge, there will be no doubt regarding the path to attain God …
Different paths and disciplines are described in our scriptures for the attainment of God. It is exceedingly difficult (if not impossible) for any person to decipher what is the best method to adopt. This confusion is then exacerbated by the mushrooming growth of so-called godmen who concoct their own paths as well. By embracing spirituality and all the world’s great faiths, the pre-eminent exponent of Hinduism, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, reconciled all the apparent discrepancies. He re-established the supremacy of bhakti yoga as the only means to attain eternal everlasting happiness, irrespective of culture or religious persuasion. Bhakti gives meditation and devotion meaning.
In this especially important discourse from 1986, Kripalu Ji Maharaj highlights the scriptural principle that although there are different paths to realise God, all of them culminate in love. In this way, Kripaluji proves that there is, was, and only will ever be one path to attain God, the path of bhakti – a form of spiritual practice focused on the cultivation of love and devotion towards God.
