Chapter V

To eschew all Symbolism and Rituals

The observance of religious practices, rites and rituals keeping fast vigils, going on pilgrimages etc. and doing breathing exercises are the elementary steps only which go to create in you a desire for turning to or meeting God. You have made best use of them when you are put on the way back to God, which is the science of the Word or the Sound Current and is one for all humanity. A devotee of this science needs not indulge in the elementary steps. In short, all acts involving physical labour belong to the realm of the physical world while we have to rise above the body and bodily consciousness to get contact with the primal manifestations of the God-head: Light and Sound. You can not pray God with hands.

God is Spirit and can only be worshipped in spirit.
