All our texts explain nature of this Supreme Reality as the Divine Paramathma without attributes [Gunas] or Forms. It is all energy or Force with Matter and has a rhythm and time. The Divine has Its Immanent Form and appears in Transcendent Forms. This reality extends all over the universe and inside each and every one of the creations.

Proper karma including our service to the community and Nithya Karma Rituals; Devotional prayers of the Bhakthi path; physical and mental discipline with meditation of Raja Yoga and seeking the true knowledge with intuitive wisdom of Jnana path are all parallel ways to attain spirituality. Doing proper Karma and studying the texts will elevate the soul to good births but will not lead to liberation. Only obtaining this true knowledge will lead to liberation from the cycle of samsara or rebirth to achieve Swarga or Moksha. It does not stop the natural forces but protects us from the effects.

The great Philosopher, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, explains the true nature of the Supreme God and the human Spirit very well. "The Divine is both in us and out of us. God is neither completely transcendent nor completely immanent. He is divine darkness as well as 'unencompassed light.' The philosophers with their passion for unity emphasize the immanent aspect, that there is no barrier dividing man from the real.

"Those who emphasize the Transcendence of the Supreme to the human insist on the specifically religious consciousness, of communion with a higher than ourselves with whom it is impossible for the individual to get assimilated." Pure scientific analysis of our perceived knowledge alone is not enough. One will have to obtain true Divine knowledge through spiritual insight or intuition to understand the concept of this reality".

The doctrine of Karma emphasizes that God is not a judge who sits in a remote heaven meting out punishments and rewards, but an indwelling being (the Self) whose "will" works in us. We need to perform our work. We offer all the benefits to God as we surrender ourselves. God will give us that strength to climb a mountain or the tools and support to row a boat across a river or the true knowledge to get around the proper path.

"Prayer is not to lighten your burden, but to strengthen your back. Have faith in God. Faith does not move the mountain, but gives you the power to climb that mountain".

We need to understand that reality by experience with true knowledge following the texts and prayers along with deep meditation and wisdom of intuitive knowledge. Devotion to the Supreme, conditioning the mind and thought and attaining proper wisdom of understanding the Supreme totally with full surrender of the individual soul to that of the Supreme will get this vision through spiritual insight and the identity of the individual soul with the supreme Brahman. This will lead to the Realization of Truth.
