The path to divinity given by Guru Basavanna takes a holistic approach that encompasses all aspects of an aspirant's life. A seeker stepping into this path will be guided in a step-by-step fashion into transforming himself. At every step, a seeker will be given arivu, the true knowledge or understanding of the state he is in along with the guidance as to how to take the next step. This arivu will enlighten an aspirant regarding what is true and what is untrue. Aspirant needs to bring this arivu into practice known as achara. Achara will guide an aspirant in his conduct. It will not only show him how not to behave, but also guide him towards the right conduct. By adopting the arivu into achara, a seeker will be able to enjoy anubhava, the real experience. When anubhava of a given step becomes a part of the aspirant, he will be guided to the next step.
This step-by-step approach will eventually lead a sincere and determined aspirant to the state of eternal divine communion, even while living in this world. Reaching this state demands strong resolve
