In the Vedic literature, the ways of action and reaction are prescribed to enable one to come to the stage of purification. The whole method is based on giving up lust, greed and anger. By cultivating knowledge of this process, one can be elevated to the highest position of self-realization; this self-realization is perfected in devotional service. In that devotional service, the liberation of the conditioned soul is guaranteed. Therefore, according to the Vedic system, there are instituted the four orders of life and the four statuses of life, called the caste system and the spiritual order system. There are different rules and regulations for different castes or divisions of society, and if a person is able to follow them, he will be automatically raised to the highest platform of spiritual realization. Then he can have liberation without a doubt. #/p# #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_22"#TEXT 22#/span##/h4# #div class="devanagari"# #dl##dd#एतैर्विमुक्तः कौन्तेय तमोद्वारैस्त्रिभिर्नरः ।#/dd# #dd#आचरत्यात्मनः श्रेयस्ततो याति परां गतिम् ॥२२॥#/dd##/dl# #/div# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#etair vimuktaḥ kaunteya#/dd# #dd#tamo-dvārais tribhir naraḥ#/dd# #dd#ācaraty ātmanaḥ śreyas#/dd# #dd#tato yāti parāṁ gatim#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #p##i#etaiḥ#/i#—from these; #i#vimuktaḥ#/i#—being liberated; #i#kaunteya#/i#—O son of Kuntī; #i#tamaḥ-dvāraiḥ#/i#—from the gates of ignorance; #i#tribhiḥ#/i#—of three kinds; #i#naraḥ#/i#—a person; #i#ācarati#/i#—performs; #i#ātmanaḥ#/i#—for the self; #i#śreyaḥ#/i#—benediction; #i#tataḥ#/i#—thereafter; #i#yāti#/i#—he goes; #i#parām#/i#—to the supreme; #i#gatim#/i#—destination. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# #p#The man who has escaped these three gates of hell, O son of Kuntī, performs acts conducive to self-realization and thus gradually attains the supreme destination. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# #p#One should be very careful of these three enemies to human life: lust, anger and greed.
