All activities of man must result in cleansing his chitta, the levels of awareness. When these are done as offerings to God, they advance this cleansing process a great deal. The way he works shapes the destiny of man. Work is sublimated into worship which fructifies into wisdom. The flower is work (karma), the emerging fruit is worship (bhakti) and the ripe sweet fruit is wisdom (jnana). It is one continuous and spontaneous process, this spiritual fulfilment of the sadhaka, the sevaka. They are like childhood, youth and old age, each imperceptibly growing into the succeeding stage.
