I have preached three methods by which man may achieve the highest good:
Method of knowledge:
Method of Action:
Method of Devotion:
- Method of knowledge is useful for those who are disinclined to be indulged in action and fulfillment of violation.
- Method of Action is useful for those who are inclined to fulfillment of violation.
- Method of Devotion is appropriate course for those who are neither totally disinclined nor over – inclined. (Bhagwat Puran 11(20/68))
Anukulasya Sankalpaha Pratikulvisarjanam|
Karishyatiti Vishwaso Bhartutve Varanam Tatha|
Atmaneivedh Karpanye Shadvidha Sharnagatihi ||
(Panchshloki 4.5 – 5)
Our commitment for the method of action prescribed by Vedas makes our mind blissful. Our commitment for the method of knowledge described in Upanishads makes us partake the Brahmic nature of omnipresence, omniscience etc. as our innermost reality. Our commitment for the method of devotion narrated in Bhagwata for Krshna should be treated as a sign that He is pleased with us. Therefore which method one should adopt is not a real issue but to which method one can really be committed, is the only real issue. All the three methods are fruitful ones, according to respective eligibilities and respective commitments.
