Success and fulfilment in life lie in spiritual pursuit. Then one can attain freedom from the cycle of birth and death. Those who do not follow the spiritual path, can be said to be misusing their vital force and intellectual capacity. Practice is the first and foremost duty in human life. In spiritual practice, there is no scope for pompous exhibitionism. Momentum in spiritual practice is gained through deep sincerity and rapid progress with devotion.On this path, one must move in unison with many, because this is the path of synthesis, of non-differentiation. Genuine dharma-sadhakas will never bother to know whether one is a Hindu, Muslim or Christian. All are the spatial, temporal or personal expressions of the same dear Lord. True dharma-sadhakas can never engage themselves in any fratricidal war in the name of dharma. They can never waste their valuable time arguing which profounder of which religion is superior or inferior. Their only endeavour is to inspire people to develop their intellect and pursue the path of knowledge, devotion and action. They will not give the least importance to ritualistic differences.Where there is no internal progress, where there is no effort made for the attainment of Brahmn, we cannot call it dharma, it is simply religion. Human beings must not entertain any divisive religious tenets. People must be freed from the spell of scriptural authority and led along the path of rationality. They should be made to understand that to run towards Parama Brahmn – the essence of all essences – is the one and only dharma.In this universe, those entities which are considered controllers of events are often called devata, gods. There are various controllers for various events. Parama Purusha is the controller of all these controllers and hence is called Parameshvara. Each and every presiding deity of every expression of cosmic energy is called devata. Parama Brahmn is the God of all gods. Behind each and every action, there is a particular vibrational flow of Brahmn. Those who seek to know that particular vibrational flow without trying to know Brahmn, only discern a partial expression of Brahmn which they call devata. These so-called gods and goddesses are nothing more than certain finite expressions of the infinite Supreme Entity. Ignorant people want to remain preoccupied with the replicas rather than the Original Entity and worship finite gods and goddesses instead of the Supreme Entity. Deaf to the cosmic sound, Omkara, which represents the vast Cosmic Entity, they endeavour to fulfil their desires by clinging to the acoustic sounds of the gods which are only a limited fraction of that all-pervasive Omkara.
