Question: What are the Steps to Perfection?

Srila Gurudeva,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

How to be solidly situated on the pathway back to Godhead? What are the step by step processes?


Answer: Faith, Devotee Association, Initiation, etc.

The steps on the bhakti path are as follows:

First comes faith in the process. Then comes devotee association. Then one adopts the principles of sadhana bhakti and accepts initiation from a bona fide spiritual master. From there by the grace of the spiritual master the dirt of lust, anger, greed, madness, illusion and envy is removed from the heart and one becomes solidly situated in bhakti. At this point taste for Krishna's holy name develops and then matures into addiction for the name. Finally volcanic eruptions of spiritual emotion within the heart manifest and one then attains pure love of God.
