Trayam-pradhanam: the three gates

The path toward Krishna is neither speculative nor sentimental. Therefore the gateway and governance of the journey is achieved by three prominent principals (trayam pradhanam):
1. Gurupadasraya: accepting a guardian 
2. Krishna-diksa-siksasanam: entering a binding relationship of instruction
3. Visrambhena-guru-seva: gratitude and deference through serving 
As the relationship of learning is binding, it is important that your guardian has both substantial knowledge and experience, and the time to impart it as required.
