‘By Dhyāna-yoga some do mentally perceive the soul in the body; by Sāñkhya-yoga, others; and by Karma-yoga, others again.’1
Some, who are perfect in yoga, perceive the soul (ātma) by the mind (ātma) in the body (ātma), by means of Dhyāna-yoga (Bhakti or Path of Love). Others, who are unadvanced in yoga, render the mind fit for yoga by means of Sāñkhya-yoga =Jñāna-yoga(=Path of Knowledge) and perceive the soul.
Others, who are unfit for Jñāna-yoga, as well as those who are fit but who prefer the easier road, also men of note who have a duty to perform viz; to set an example to others, follow Karma-yoga (= Path of Works) embodying knowledge, and train the mind to be fit for yoga, and perceive the soul.
