This divine three-propertied yog-maya of mine
most difficult to overcome,
they who seek refuge in me get over the illusion and achieve salvation.
The ignorant and unwise are the most despicable of men
doers of wickedness,
deluded by maya and having demoniacal qualities they do not worship me.
Four kinds of devotees,
O dear blessed soul…….
There are first those who do the appointed task
because doing it will bring good fortune,
they are the doers of selfish action.
There are, then, men who devote themselves to me
because they wish to be liberated from grief.
Yet other devotees long to have a direct perception of mine.
there are the wise men,
the realized sages, who attained to the stage of reaching the supreme goal.
Material wealth is the means that sustains the body
as well as all its relations.
So riches and satisfaction of desires are first provided by me.
I am the provider of means,
But do you know?
The really lasting wealth is made up of spiritual acquisition.
This is the real treasure.
While a worshiper is busy toiling for material gains,
I prompt him on towards spiritual achievements,
I know that spiritual merits are man’s real wealth
my worshiper will not always be contented with material acquisitions alone.
So I also begin to bestow spiritual riches on him.
Granting profit in the mortal world and support in the next world
both my burden.
Under no circumstance do I leave the worshiper uncompensated.
There are, then, worshipers with grief-laden hearts.
There are also among worshipers of mine men who wish to know me fully.
Men who have attained knowledge of mine by perception also worship me.
Thus, four kinds of men are my devoted adorers.
But of all of them the worshiper with the wisdom that comes from perception
the most superior.
The significant point is, however,that this sagacious man is a devotee,too.
To the wise man of knowledge who worships me,
the one God,
with steady love and devotion,
I am the dearest, and so is he to me.
[Revered Adgadanandji Gurudev]
The worshiper endowed with knowledge
identical with God
discriminating worshiper dwells in him with the faith
he is his sublime goal.
