The Four Kinds of Approach is the first discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Timmern, Germany. The discourse was delivered in English on the evening of 1979 May 19. This discourse is the sixteenth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.[1]


You know, human expressions are trifarious in character. Human beings have so many physical manifestations, psychic desires and longings, and also a spiritual thirst. This spiritual thirst is the specialty, or rather the special characteristic, of human beings, and there lies the difference between man and other animals. Where there is no spiritual thirst in a man, physically he may be like a man, but actually, psychologically, he is not a man. So this special determination of human beings should always be encouraged, so that man may develop for an ordinary human being to a superman.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by stating the three expressions and the four approaches of human beings. He goes on explaining that the psycho-spiritual approach is a specialty of human beings that does not exist in animals. Anandamurti goes on explaining that human beings in their spiritual practice are making efforts to lessen the distance between them and Parama Purusa, and they do that while maintaining a subjective approach with objective adjustment.[1]
