What is the spiritual triangle?

Spirituality is a triangle made up of bhakti, jnana, and karma. Among these, bhakti is longer than the other two, hence more powerful and significant. However, all three sides are necessary for spirituality.

Satyavati grew among the fishermen the chief of them being her adopter father.
She used to ferry people across river Yamuna in a boat, as a service.
Before that,let's see the background of Satyavati's mysterious birth.
This is there in Padma Purana, Srishti Khanda, Chapter 9.
There is a group of forefathers called Agnishwattas.
They are descendents of Marichi.
They live in world called Somapatha.
In their vamsha there was a girl called Achhoda.
She did intense tapas for a thousand years to propitiate the forefathers.
The forefathers appeared before her.
They were all very handsome like Kamadeva himself.
Among them was Amavasu.
Acchoda was infatuated with him and desired him.
She fell from the tapas.
She should not have done that.
She had to fall from the higher world.
Since this happened due to her desire for Amavasu, she became known as amavasya.
When she fell she didn't touch the ground.
She remained in the atmosphere
Acchoda was still dear to the forefathers even though what she had done was a shameless act.
They foresaw her future and also took into consideration the great tapas that she had performed.
They told her: In the twenty eighth Dwapara-yuga you will take birth as the daughter of a fish. Even though your father will be a king because of what you have done now, you will have to grow up among fishermen.
Then you will conceive from Sage Parashara and give birth to a boy.
This will be in an island full of the Badari trees and your son will get the name Badarayana because of that.
Your son will divide the single Vedic corpus into four parts.
You will remain a virgin even after this.
Then you will marry a king called Shantanu and give birth to two sons, Chitrangada and Vichitraveerya.
Then you will attain the pitruloka and will be known as Ashtaka there.
You will have the power to bless anyone with health, wealth and long life.
The krishna paksha ashtamis of the lunar months Pausha, Magha and Phalguna are called Ashtakas.
Shraddha or tarpana is performed on these days.

Sage Parashara was on a pilgrimage when he came there.
He must have realized who Satyavati really was.
People say that Parashara was enchanted by her beauty, lost self control and wanted to unite with.
Nothing of that sort is there in Mahabharata.
In fact all the terms used indicate right opposite of this.
दृष्ट्वैव स च तां धीमांश्चकमे चारुहासिनीम्।
दिव्यां तां वासवीं कन्यां रम्भोरुं मुनिपुङ्गवः।
Parashara is dheeman-wise,Munipungava-the great Muni.
Munis have the power to contemplate.
Both these terms in this shloka very well convey that Parashara was absolutely in control of his mind.
दिव्यां तां वासवीं कन्यां- Who is Vasavi?
Vasu's daughter and she is divya, divine.
Parashara has realized that this is the girl who has to give birth to the amshavatara of the Lord.
The seed has to be his.
There is no sensuality anywhere here.
Parashara says:
संगमं मम कल्याणि कुरुष्व
Unite with me.
उवाच मत्प्रियं कृत्वा कन्यैव त्वं भविष्यसि।
What can be priyam for Parashara?
Not relatioship with a girl who smells like fish.
His priyam is to make path for the incarnation of the Lord.
It is once again made clear:
जगाम सह संसर्गमृषिणाद्भुतकर्मणा
What happened between Parashara and Satyavati was Samsarga
For samsarga the dhatu is सृज meaning creation.
Samsarga is what happened their, not sambhoga.
Sambhoga happens out of passion, desire for the body, desire to enjoy the body.
Samsarga union with the purpose to create.

Parashara is adbhuta karma, he performs miracles.
Satyavati said there are Rishis on both the shores of Yamuna.
Parashara created fog so that nobody sees their union.
Satyavati said, I am a disciplined girl.
How will I explain if I lose my virginity.
No, you will not.
You will remain a virgin even after giving birth.
Parashara said: Ask for anything else that you want.
Remove this stink from my body, if you may please.
Sage Parashara replace the stink with a fragrance that can be smelled even from a distance of one yojana.
Matsyagandha became Gandhavati, Yojanagandha.
