Conclusion

This book was written at a request of God, and He blessed its publication. It is a result of efforts of the author who not simply "believes in God", but knows Him very well, in His Abode, in particular. With his life the author managed to prove that the Creator can not only be cognized, but may become a reality that can be perceived even more clearly than bodies of other people.

Author also knows very well Personal Manifestations of God-the-Father — such Divine Teachers as Jesus Christ, Babaji, Krishna, Huang-Di, Sathya Sai Baba and many Others. He was receiving initiations into Divine Knowledge from Them in the course of walking his spiritual Path.

And now that he walked that Path through up to the Abode of the Creator he shares his knowledge and experience — in his books — with everybody who is willing to accept this help. The one who traveled the Path to the end sees very well mistakes of those people who have not reached the finish yet. And he points at these mistakes and at possibilities of making them.

The author understands very well that it is impossible to walk all the Path to the end just by reading this training aid: not everything can be written in the book. For example, "places of power" that play an important role in the practice of meditation. But what one can do using these instructions is mastering all the stages up to the Mergence with the Holy Spirit.

Even easier is "resettlement" into one's spiritual heart and attaining perfect health — the only thing that one will have to do is to fulfill all the recommendations given in the beginning of the book, and they are too simple and easy to understand for one not to accomplish that.

The first goal that everyone may set before oneself is to leave the tamas guna. One needs to leave it in every possible way: in one's nutrition, emotions, speech, any forms of communication with other people and all incarnate or non-incarnate beings… And him who makes first steps towards God sincerely — God Himself comes to meet, reaching His Hands to help.

And let the key elements of the highest steps of the Path serve those who climb them by themselves as guiding thread and convenient reference points so that they do not get lost.

The author does not suggest anything from himself theoretically: he simply formulated a whole concept about the most important — on the basis of knowledge which God conveyed to people and personally to him. This synthesis is a result of his long apprenticeship with God and close and fruitful communication with Him, as well as of testing these methods for many years on many people; every one of them reached the certain stage of their spiritual ascent depending on their abilities at that time.

The author would like all people to correct their religious views and conceptions and reject all sectarian deviations from the course, one for all people, which the Founder of all religious Teachings — God — proposed. It would also be great if all people started to walk the trodden road to our common Father — God, Whose name only sounds different in different languages.

Let us restore the original Teaching of God together! And changing ourselves is what we should start with.

There is no need to give up ritual practices already established. We just need to promote correct understanding of the idea that there is Universal God Who is One for all living beings and how we should collaborate with Him in the Process of the Universal Evolution by perfecting ourselves and helping others in this.

But the primary knowledge that should become the core of everything is that God is Love and He wants us to become consciousnesses (souls) who always live in the state of love. This is the major Precept of God.
