Steps in Spiritual Progress

Verse SYV (19.30) gives a procedure to attain the Truth beginning with self-dedication, vrataVrata is often translated as austerities like fasting. Correct translation is, ‘law of workings’. Every one has to act according to his inner law, the law of workings. Here it is rendered as (self-dedication).

“By self-dedication (vrata) one becomes consecrated or initiated (dīkşha);

by consecration one obtains grace (dakşhiņa),

by grace, faith and

by faith, Truth is obtained.” SYV (19.30)

vrata: law of workings
