Shloka 5

TEXT 5

yat sāṅkhyaiḥ prāpyate sthānaṁ
tad yogair api gamyate
ekaṁ sāṅkhyaṁ ca yogaṁ ca
yaḥ paśyati sa paśyati

What state is achieved by sankhya(analysis, jnana yoga), that state can be attained by yoga(karma yoga – acting in devotion) too. One who sees that sankhya and yoga are one, he actually sees.

Snakhya yoga is analytical study of one’s true nature; by that increased awareness one acts with knowledge. Karma Yoga is acting for the lord by bypassing their mind, which will uncover one’s true nature. Hence both lead to the same conclusion. Just the approach is different. One who sees this truth, is the one who is aware.

Divya: Devotee should be humble. If by analytical study one is getting arrogant, then his downfall begins.
