    Not sure what you mean by asceticism or thrive together. Lord Krishna defines the three ways to attain to Him in chapter XV of Uddhava Gita. those are Karma, Bhakti, and Jnana. And by having the mind centered on Him alone, one attains the all. Aug 8, 2016 at 11:21

    asceticism is one of those words that has different connotations to different people, most of them negative. Sankara says that the Lord is gained through one thing - hankering. There is the story of the guru who held his disciple head under water for a long time. When he released him, the guru asked the disciple how he felt. He said he could only think of one thing - to get a breath of air. The guru replied that when he wanted the Lord the same way he wanted that breath of air, the Lord would be seen. Hankering is all that is required. Aug 11, 2016 at 10:32

    In Kaliyuga, nama sankeertana (chanting the lord's name) helps attain all three goals. There are certain rules to be practised while continuing the nama sankeertana yoga.
