The four paths of Yoga

Karma Yoga

is the path of action. It deals with the law of cause and effect. Each action has a corresponding reaction, on one’s body, mind and consciousness. The outcome of an action is dependent upon its ethical value and the intention with which it was carried out.

Bhakti Yoga

is the path of devotion and love for God and for the whole of creation - animals, as well as humans, and all of nature.

Raja Yoga

is also known as the “Royal Path of Yoga” or the “Eight Step Path”. It is the path of self-discipline and contains, amongst other things, those Yoga techniques that are familiar to us such as Asanas, Pranayama, Meditation and Kriyas.

Gyana Yoga

is the philosophical path. The focus of this path is to gain the ability to distinguish between reality and unreality. To attain Self-Knowledge through study, practice and experience.

 

These four Yoga paths do not represent separate paths. Each path is closely related to the other. When we think of God and are full of love for our fellow-humans and for nature, we are Bhakti Yogis. When we stand by others and help we are Karma Yogis. When we meditate and perform yoga practices, we are Raja Yogis; and when we reflect upon the meaning of life and are explorers seeking truth and reality, we are Gyana Yogis.

OM Paramātma, protect and bless us.

 

Give us strength to come to the end of the path,

 

to eternal knowledge.

 

Help us so that we do not turn against one another,

 

and eternally united continue on the path together.

 

OM Peace Peace Peace
