  Four Doors to the Divine
  from the chapter - Paragon of Devotion to Sri Guru Granth Sahib
   

1.   Sat  
2.   Sat Guru  
3.   Sat Nam  
4.   Sat Purakh  

On this path of Truth falsehood can not tread. First door opens to a person practicing truthful living that leads one to the second door and he meets the Satguru. Then opens the third door and Satguru blesses the true aspirant - with Sat Nam (The Divine Name). Satguru then leads him through the fourth door to God (Sat Purakh).

Truth in its fourfold aspects dawns upon a true heart and reigns Supreme in his onward divine awakening and realization.

It is a fourfold upgradation.

  Firstly, from animal nature to a human being by practicing truthful living.
Secondly, from a human being to a spiritual being.
  Thirdly, from a spiritual being to Self-Realization.
  Fourthly, from Self-Realization to God-Realization.

Unless the animal nature ceases and vanishes, one does not become fit for Nam Simran. Karma Philosophy is there to raise a human being to a level where he becomes fit for Nam. Good and pure Karmas purify the mind and make it fit for taking up the path of the Divine Name.

1.   Karam Marg  
2.   Nam Marg  
3.   Bhagti Marg  
4.   Sehaj Marg  

Pure actions (Karmas) lead us to the path of the Nam. True Nam Simran invokes the Grace and Blessing of Prema and Prema leads to ultimate immersion in Sehaj Avastha.
