SREE NARAYANA GURU'S SCIENCE OF LIFE
A spiritually oriented life is a pilgrimage from Dwaita (the concept of duality) to Advaita (the realization of nonduality). Duality is the beginning and non-duality is the culmination of this journey in life. Dwaita (duality) sees the devotee (atma) and God (Paramatma) as two separate entities. In the advaita philosophy there are no two entities, but just one, i.e. God (The Supreme Self). For this journey towards realization of one’s unity with God, the seers have recommended two paths:- (1) Jnanamarga or Vicharamarga (The path of knowledge or path of contemplation) and (2) Karmamarga (the path of action) or Upasanamarga (the path of worship). Both these paths ultimately lead to Moksha (liberation). Liberation is the realization or attainment of Godhood.
