1. God verily exists. He alone is the Truth.
2. It is possible to see Him, nay, even to talk with Him.
3. To see Him, to realise Him, is the goal of life.
4. By seeing him, by realizing him, everything is achieved, everything is gained.
5. For this, a guru is necessary.
6. Renunciation of lust and greed is the main discipline.
7. And also truth.
8. God can be realised through intense longing also.
