disciplines are called Sadhanas. They are paths to perfection, roads
to realisation of the truth. Since there are temperamental
differences among the individual seekers of truth,. Hinduism
recognises the need for a variety of spiritual disciplines or
Sadhanas. These Sadhanas can be brought under four broad categories
called Yogas : the Karma Yoga, the Bhakti Yoga, the Raja Yoga and
the Jnana Yoga.
Karma Yoga is the path of
disinterested action suited to the active type. Bhakti Yoga, the
path of love of God, is most suitable to the emotional type, Raja
Yoga, the path of psychic control, is meant for the introspectives.
