Three Steps of Indian Philosophy

These are the salient points of the three steps which 
Indian religious thought has taken in regard to God. 

We have seen that it began with the Personal, the extra - cosmic God. 
It went from the external to the internal cosmic body, 
God immanent in the universe, and ended in 
identifying the soul itself with that God, and 
making one Soul, a unit of all these various manifestations in the universe. 

This is the last word of the Vedas. 
It begins with dualism, goes through a qualified monism and ends in perfect monism.
