The ultimate goal of human life, as mentioned in my previous post, is union with Brahman, the Supreme Spirit. This is achieved through Yoga which in itself means union. There are four paths of Yoga:
This is the path of devotion in which devotees exude love, compassion and service towards God through chanting, prayers and darshan.
This is the path of action in which all actions are performed as an offering to God with no attachment to the outcome, thus forming the basis of selfless service.
This is the path of knowledge in which the mind is used to discern that which is real and that which is not.
This is the “royal path” which is a comprehensive approach to control the mind and body through meditation and hatha yoga.
Depending on our natural tendencies, we may be drawn to one particular path or a mixture of all. I have a particular affinity towards the path of knowledge or jnana yoga although I integrate practices from all paths.
