Spiritual Perfection - an essential subject
The highest summit of spiritual perfection is knowledge of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Unless one is firmly convinced of the different opulence's of the Supreme Lord, he cannot engage in devotional service. Generally people know that God is great, but they do not know in detail how God is great. Here are the details. If one knows factually how God is great, then naturally he becomes a surrendered soul and becomes spiritually perfect by engaging himself in the devotional service of the Lord. When one factually knows the opulence's of the Supreme, there is no alternative but to surrender to Him, this is spiritual perfection. This factual knowledge can be known from the descriptions in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam and Bhagavad-gītā and similar literature.
