Gist: While doing things for the benefit of all beings, the devotee's attention ever remains on God's grace. In doing, a devetee is an instrument in the hands of God, but in attaining Him, it is all God's grace. In reality an embodied Soul's salvation is only possible with the grace of God.
Grace of God is Key
Whatever God instructs, He (A devotee who is surrendered to God) does so for the salvation of all beings in this Universe. While doing things for the benefit of all beings, the devotee's attention ever remains on God's grace. For such a devotee, what else is remaining to be done? God's heart is ever and deeply longing for the betterment of all beings. It is because of this that God reveals the most secret message - "Sarva dharmaan parityajya maamekum sharanam vraja." Because God considers all beings His friend - "suhrdeyam sarvabhutaanaam," (Gita 5:29) He gives the freedom to attain Him and be free of all sorrow, adversity, etc once and for all. For this He prescribes the various disciplines, the discipline of action (karma yoga), knowledge (jnana yoga) and devotion (bhakti yoga) or any of other spiritual practices to attain Him.
In reality an embodied Soul's salvation is only possible with the grace of God. In all of the spiritual practices, it is only God's grace that permeates throughout and is ever present. In doing various spiritual practices an aspirant becomes an instrument in the hands of God, but in attaining anything from these practices, the grace of God is key.
