<< Chapter 5 verse 4


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

‘The place that is gained by the Sānkhyas, is gained by the Yogis as well. He sees, who sees that Sānkhya and Yoga are but one.’

The Sānkhyas are the followers of the Jñāna-method. Whatsoever goal is reached by these is that reached, as well, by the followers of Karma-yoga.

He sees (or knows) correctly, who sees (or knows) that either of the methods, Sankhya and Yoga, leads to the same one fruit. Such person alone is wise.

The difference is this-much:—
