God’s Love and Protection is a secret power. The power helps seekers in staying away from the fear of sickness, gloom, and penury. But the question is- how to invite God’s Love & Protection to life. The most common paths are the path of knowledge and the path of devotion.Let’s understand these paths with an example.When a son is far from home, and he has to see his ailing mother, he has two options before him. He may start his journey cursing the world and complaining about the problems faced along the way. In such a case, the journey would become troublesome. He will be stressed and tense throughout the journey. Ultimately, he will reach home distressed and sad.But there is also a different approach to pursue. He can carry out the journey in a natural and loving way; moving with devotion, driven by love and bliss as he is going to meet his mother who gave him birth.The Path of KnowledgeThis path is full of love, filled with deep emotions and moistness and it is not a dry way. That means the path of ‘attribute worship’ is the path of knowledge that’s very dry, within which there is no space for the feelings of love. We consistently make our thoughts pure while moving on the path of knowledge while removing the impure thoughts and then we reach God.The Path of Self-RealizationThe path of self-realization is the path of attribute worship (Nirgun Upasna) and in it, the dependency is on self. Here, we have taken our total responsibility in endeavour to reach God and we have to accomplish it. While moving on this path, we will think deeply and figure out how much Yoga and deep meditation to practice, and how many scriptures to study.So, the whole method of austerity and meditation will depend on us. It means you have not left anything on the supreme power. But in the case of ‘the attributeless worship’ (Sagun Upasna) path, you completely devote yourself to God. What happens then? When we surrender ourselves completely to God, He protects us in all circumstances.The Path of DevotionThe phenomenon has been described in Gita. Every aspect of the seeker, his salvation, his sustenance in the world, and his worldly affairs are protected by God. So, when we devote everything to the supreme power, God will sustain us. He will bestow power upon us. He comes close and touches us with love like a caring mother.Dr Archika Didi
