Perception of God and the consequent enlightenment are knowledge.
The worshiper is but grovelling in the mire of ignorance
there is even the slightest distance between him and the adored God
the desire to know him remains unfulfilled.
What is called “intuitive” knowledge (vigyan) here
knowledge of God’s functioning
through things, acts, and relations
(the manifest universe)
how he is all-pervading,
how he prompts,
how he guides innumerable Souls simultaneously,
how he is knower
all times-past, present, and future.
He begins to guide from the very moment
when he makes his advent in a heart as the revered one,
the worshiper is unable to know this at the initial stage.
It is only when he has reached the culmination of his contemplative exercise
he gains full awareness of God’s ways.
This is vigyan.
The heart of man who is accomplished in yog
satiated with this achievement
with his knowledge of God
