Spiritual Aspirant Undergoes Changes in His Attitude to God

The way a spiritual aspirant adores God depends upon his attitude towards himself. In other words, his level of consciousness determines his conception and adoration of God.

In his spiritual journey a spiritual aspirant undergoes changes in his attitude to God corresponding to the different degrees of purity of his mind, and finally reaches the culmination of spiritual life: oneness with God.

A verse attributed to Hanuman brilliantly describes this important spiritual principle: ‘When I think of myself as a body, I am the servant and You are my Master; when I think of myself as a jevatman, I am a part and You are the Whole. When I know I am the Spirit, I am Thou – this is my firm conviction!’
