In fact after gaining the new knowledge of the second stage, the seekers become inspired to take further steps to make the life richer and nobler. They exercise increased self-control and actively cultivate moral virtue. Through their new found patience and perserverance, their mental power and emotional potentiality are redirected.
They are able to direct their thoughts, desires and emotions towards spiritual advancement. This stage requires sustained endeavour on the part of all seekers to probe within themselves, to cast away their egocentricity and replace it with God-consciousness, to become a sort of a super-person whose comprehension, discernment, intuitive cognition and understanding are refined and perfected: There is moulded in their now discerning mind a recognition and understanding.
Of the consciousness of gods and mystics! Man's spiritual efforts on their own end, without God's grace cannot come to fruition.

In this realm exist the heroes who suffered martyrdom for worthy causes or died fighting on the battle field of life with God's Name on their lips. They are rewarded by God's blessing and are then beyond this world's turmoil and tension. Noble souls are fearless souls, full of power and grace; they show their love of God by working for the public good.

It is a state of mind in which the seeker and God are now linked. In the Realm of Truth,abides the Formless one. He watches over all he has created with bounteous eyes! This is The State of Achievement, with all its splendour and bliss. The devotee now becomes the Saint, in tune with Infinite. It should be realised that this stage of bliss is attainable during one's ordinary life. The stages need not be sequential. They may be simultaneous. They occur when seeker, while living in the world and doing his daily chores, gains this higher spiritual knowledge and then so disciplines himself that he wins Divine favour and becomes graced by God.
Verse 38 summerises all five stages and additionally examples the achievement of the seeker, to the minting of a gold coin. The process of smelting, refining, moulding and stamping is vividly brought out. In a factory of self-control, where patience the gold-smith beats out the golden ore of life on an anvil of understanding with a hammer of wisdom, the gold then purified, of by the fire of austerity, blown by the bellows of discipline, thereafter the molten gold is pounded in the crucible of love, and cast in the mould of immortality.
