Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
There are two paths. The way of the South and the way of the North.
Those who worship thinking ‘We have done sacrifices and pious works’, attain only the regions of the moon and return to life and death. That is why those sages who desire children and the life of the family follow the path of the South. This is the path of the ancestors.
But those who in search of the inner Spirit follow the spiritual path of the North with steadiness, purity, faith and wisdom attain the regions of the sun. And there is the ocean of life, the refuge supreme, the land of immortality where there is no fear. From there they do not return again. It is the end of the journey.
There is a verse of the Rig Veda that says:
‘Some speak of a father who sends rain from the heaven of the North, resting on the seasons and showing himself in twelve ways. Others speak of a sage in the heaven of the South with a chariot of seven wheels [planets] and six spokes
