BASIC KNOWLEDGE

What are Jyanyog (not Gyanyog), Karmyog and Bhaktiyog?

Jyan (not Gyan) Marg,  Karam Marg and Bhakti Marg do not mean absence of any of these. When we talk of Jyan Marg, jyan is primary and karam & bhakti follow it. And when we talk of karam Marg, jyan & bhakti are no doubt present but prominence is given to karam. Similarly, when we talk of Bhakti Marg, jyan & karam are present but prominence is given to bhakti. All the three aspects of life i.e. Jyan, Karam & Bhakti are inter-dependent. Jyan without Karam is meaningless, Karam without Jyan is worthless. Both Jyan & Karam become meaningful only if their aim is Bhakti. As such, true spirituality requires optimum combination of Jyan, Karam & Bhakti. Bhakti Marg actually means following the commands. In this sense, think over the meaning of the Hindi words-deshbakt and swamibakt. By the word 'deshbakt', we mean a being who follows commands of the nation and by the word 'swamibakt' we mean a being who follows the commands of his master. Likewise, bhakti refers to following the commands of God. ‘Surrender’ also means the same thing. Other meanings of these terms prevalent in the society are misleading and should be abandoned.
