Which is the sure-shot method to attain spiritual knowledge and devotion in Kaliyuga?

[Shri Jayesh Pandey asked: Dandvat Namaskaram Swami ji! Which is the sure-shot method for attaining knowledge and devotion in this Kaliyuga? What is faith, love and devotion? Am I wrong and committing sin in disobeying my parents? Please enlighten me on these points. At Your feet and service. Dandvat Namaskaram to Swami Ji and to His blessed devotees!]

Swami Replied:- Faith is belief in general. Belief in God for a devotee is not very valuable. If you go to the Prime Minister and say that you believe him as the Prime Minister, will he do any favour to you? Belief is your personal quality and concept, which has nothing to do with God. Love and devotion are one and the same like old wine in a new bottle. The affinity for worldly things is called love whereas, the same affinity towards God is called as devotion.
