The fundamental obstacle in the path is the sense of complacency with the temporary enjoyments the world provides – wealth, family, fame, power etc. When one recognises the futility of such pursuits, one begins the spiritual journey. With the correct spiritual disciplines one overcomes all obstacles and merges with the absolute Reality. 

"In the whole world there is no study so beneficial and so elevating as that of Vedanta."
