Knowledge shows the true path and creates strong determination.


Knowledge is the most important power in spiritual path as per Shankara. Out of several paths, you have to discuss with sharp analysis to find out the correct path to reach the goal. When all the doubts are cleared, determination to implement effort in practice results. Deep analysis of knowledge alone can clarify all the doubts. Hence, these two are the important effects of spiritual knowledge and therefore lot of importance must be given to deep analysis of spiritual knowledge.
