Treading the Broad Path of Spirituality is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Kolkata, India. The discourse was delivered on the morning of 1978 November 10. This discourse is the eighteenth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 4.
Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that everything in this world is associated with fear in some way or another. Vaeragya (renunciation) is when one realizes the temporary nature of material objects with their related colors and thereafter no longer accepts domination by the constant fluctuations of pleasure and pain. Anandamurti then explains that the best abode for the mind is the Supreme Entity, the Entity free from all bondage. We obtain some knowledge from different transient objects (Prapti), but it tends to get quickly forgotten. On the other hand, the knowledge we obtain directly from the Supreme Entity (Apti) remains with us unfailingly. Anandamurti goes on saying that those who fill their minds with the Supreme Truth and always remain under His shelter will never be distracted by pettiness or selfishness. They will move fearlessly along the path of bliss and achieve their spiritual goal.
