Baba shows the path of Bhakthi and through Bhakthi to Jnana, to all aspirants. "The dusty fairweather District Board road of Karma leads to the metalled State Government road of Bhakthi and this leads to the nice Asphalted National Highway of Jnana", says Baba.
He is the guide, once you start on the path to the goal of self realization. he takes you by the hand and leads you making every step easier than the previous one, removing obstacles, providing sustenance (physical and spiritual).
While only 16 years old, Baba assured the aged Digambaraswami that He would provide him with food and shelter, wherever he may be, if he engaged himself in rigorous one-pointed Thapas, until he attained Self-realization. He assured 70 years old Swami Satchidananda that He would take full charge of him, if he chose the path of thapas, wherever he may be.
'Jnanaad eva thu kaivalyam' By Jnana alone is liberation attained, says Baba. But just as a fruit undergoes three stages of development, fruiting, maturity and ripeness, man too has to pass through Karma, Upasana and Jnana. When the Jnana stage is reached, sweetness fills the fruit and man is full of Bliss. Baba is the Sun which matures and ripens the fruit and fills it with Ananda.
