One perspective on the four paths of yoga is that they are really one path; knowledge, love, right action, and practice are all necessary for spiritual development.  The image of a horse with four legs comes to mind.  This seems to be indicated in the Pan Gu password.  We do not seperate, we take kindness and benevolence as basis (knowledge), and take frankness and friendliness to heart (love), and speak with reason (right action), and treat with courtesy (right action), and move with emotion (love), and accomplish result (practice).  Practicing the Pan Gu Shengong program is a way to align yourself with all the brances of yoga, as well as any other true spiritual tradition.  That is also why it can be practiced along with other spiritual disciplines, as the spiritual experience becomes clearer and more manifest in life, it brings knowledge and love, and these combined produce right action, and therefor deepen the practice.

What does "Steepest" mean to you?

I have worked as a rock climbing guide and backpacking guide.  "Steepest" to me is a factor I consider relative to the length of the route or path :)

Thanks

Brian

The question of "comprehension is a shortcut" may seem straight forward, but as we really try to understand and practice it, it seems to slip away from a clear understanding.  Master Ou has a wonderful story about cooking small fish.  How can one take a "shortcut" for cooking small fish?  His answer:

"Based on my experience, I suggest we start with improving the quality of our hearts and souls.  The secret is being quick but not flustered, and doing things in order. In order to be quick but not flustered, and to do things in order, we must be quiet in mind and peaceful in disposition! This is the basic prerequisite of being able to take the shortcut, which means we should be noble minded."

Such wisdom contained in a lesson of cooking small fish!
