…..The evolutionary path of our ascent came into light, you will be amazed, much later than Krishna Himself came on this earth, even after Christ, people started talking about the methods of evolution within us. So we should have no confusion about these three methods. Because of the bhakti of people, because of the asking of the people, the different aspects of God descended on this earth as incarnations. […..] Now the middle path of evolution is the one that we are going to discuss here. The one that deals with the mastering of the nature, is the one they used in the Vedas where they did not mention even the deities, they did not mention anything about God Almighty, but only talked of the Brahma Tattwa, the one principle by which all the five elements are governed.

But there was another movement going on, on the left-hand side where people did not care for all these things. This was meant for the kshatriyas, the kings who were very ambitious and wanted to overpower the whole world. But the left side, gentry I would say, the people who were dedicated to God, who always asked for the help of God, were busy organizing dedications and what we call worships, pujas according to their own understanding. But the central path was occupied or, I should say, the central path was looked after by two forces. The first one: those who were the seekers under some gurus, who were realized souls of a very high level. And the another were the incarnations who came on this earth to protect, to save the devotees of God…
