Traveller must acknowledge in his heart that God only always was, God only always will be.


The subject of Renunciation, which is of two kinds, external and internal. The former is the renunciation of worldly wealth; the latter, the renunciation of worldly desires. Everything that hinders or veils the Traveller's path must be renounced, whether it relate to this world or the next. Wealth and dignity are great hindrances; but too much praying and fasting are often hindrances too. The one is a shroud of darkness, the other a veil of light. The Traveller must renounce idolatry, if one desire to reach the Goal, and everything that bars his progress is an idol. All person have some idol, which they worship; with one it is wealth and dignity, with another overmuch prayer and fasting. If a person sit always upon his/her prayer-carpet his/her prayer-carpet becomes his idol.

Renunciation and the knowledge of God are like a tree; the knowledge of God is the root, renunciation the branches, and all good principles and qualities are the fruit.-To sum up, the lesson to be learnt is that in repeating the formula the Traveller must acknowledge in his heart that God only always was, God only always will be. This world and the next, nay, the very existence of the Traveller, may vanish, but God alone remains. This is the true confession of faith; and although the Traveller before was blind, the moment she/he is assured of this his eyes are opened, and he seethe.
