The three essential components of the spiritual effort

Complete faith, complete devotion proved through practical sacrifice and complete absence of aspiration for fruit in return are the three essential components of the spiritual effort. The faith in the existence of God is the fundamental. Regarding the address of God, the contemporary human incarnation is the convenient path for doing practical service. The practical service cannot be done for the formless God and for statues of energetic forms of the upper worlds like Vishnu and of past human incarnations (In the case of statues the priests enjoy your service indirectly). Direct and meaningful practical service is possible only in the case of contemporary human incarnation as done by Hanuman and Gopikas.
