Variety of philosophies, caste and attire, pose another challenge as he cannot fathom which amongst them leads to liberation. Sure of the Guru’s compassion and capacity to solve all his doubts, he pleads Him to show the path of liberation. Blessing the disciple with a loving assurance that he shall attain the path of liberation, the True Teacher explains that the darkness of ignorance of the Self is destroyed by the light of knowledge. Attachment, aversion and ignorance are the main knots of karmas; the means through which these can be destroyed is the path of liberation. Deluding karma is the chief of all karmas; enlightenment and dispassion are the sure antidotes for eliminating the faith and conduct deluding karmas respectively. The True Teacher also shows the complete path of liberation, right from the foundational virtues till omniscience. Through concluding pinnacle-like verses the True Teacher then explains the essence of dharma and the nature of the Self.
