It is important to understand the position and philosophy of every spiritual statement. More so when it comes to interpreting the spiritual works such as the Bhagavad Gita etc, one may find extremely contradictory statements about the same subject which may appear to starkly oppose each other. This is where one has to become vigilant and take the help of one who has undergone spiritual rigor in understanding the scripture. While analyzing such scripture, the rule of thumb is to be able to harmonize contradictory statements and arrive at one universal meaning in the most profound manner.
