In this verse, the Lord explains the same more clearly. #i#Sāṅkhya-yoga#/i#, or the analytical study of the nature of spirit and matter, is the subject matter for persons who are inclined to speculate and understand things by experimental knowledge and philosophy. The other class of men work in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, as it is explained in the 61st verse of the Second Chapter. The Lord has explained, also in the 39th verse, that by working by the principles of #i#buddhi-yoga#/i#, or Kṛṣṇa consciousness, one can be relieved from the bonds of action; and, furthermore, there is no flaw in the process. The same principle is more clearly explained in the 61st verse—that this #i#buddhi-yoga#/i# is to depend entirely on the Supreme (or more specifically, on Kṛṣṇa), and in this way all the senses can be brought under control very easily. Therefore, both the #i#yogas#/i# are interdependant, as religion and philosophy. Religion without philosophy is sentiment, or sometimes fanaticism, while philosophy without religion is mental speculation. The ultimate goal is Kṛṣṇa, because the philosophers who are also sincerely searching after the Absolute Truth come in the end to Kṛṣṇa consciousness. This is also stated in the #i#Bhagavad-gītā#/i#. The whole process is to understand the real position of the self in relation to the Superself. The indirect process is philosophical speculation, by which, gradually, one may come to the point of Kṛṣṇa consciousness; and the other process is directly connecting with everything in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Of these two, the path of Kṛṣṇa consciousness is better because it does not depend on purifying the senses by a philosophical process. Kṛṣṇa consciousness is itself the purifying process, and by the direct method of devotional service it is simultaneously easy and sublime. #/p# #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_3"#TEXT 3#/span##/h4# #div class="devanagari"# #dl##dd#श्रीभगवानुवाच ।#/dd# #dd#लोकेऽस्मिन् द्विविधा निष्ठा पुरा प्रोक्ता मयानघ ।#/dd# #dd#ज्ञानयोगेन साङ्ख्यानां कर्मयोगेन योगिनाम् ॥३॥#/dd##/dl# #/div# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#śrī-bhagavān uvāca#/dd# #dd#loke 'smin dvi-vidhā niṣṭhā#/dd# #dd#purā proktā mayānagha#/dd# #dd#jñāna-yogena sāṅkhyānāṁ#/dd# #dd#karma-yogena yoginām#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #p##i#śrī-bhagavān uvāca#/i#—the Supreme Personality of Godhead said; #i#loke#/i#—in the world; #i#asmin#/i#—this; #i#dvi-vidhā#/i#—two kinds of; #i#niṣṭhā#/i#—faith; #i#purā#/i#—formerly; #i#proktā#/i#—were said; #i#mayā#/i#—by Me; #i#anagha#/i#—O sinless one; #i#jñāna-yogena#/i#—by the linking process of knowledge; #i#sāṅkhyānām#/i#—of the empiric philosophers; #i#karma-yogena#/i#—by the linking process of devotion; #i#yoginām#/i#—of the devotees. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# #p#The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: O sinless Arjuna, I have already explained that there are two classes of men who try to realize the self.
