Karma Bhakti or Jnana
The way of devotion or the way of selfless work or the path of knowledge
All or one ?

Each is a part of the other integral
Bhakti matures into knowledge
As knowledge matures into Bhakti
In every seeker

Knowledge of the One undivided Divine
In apparently divided forms
Is the root for selfless work

Knowledge and love that the Divine ordains
Forms the basis for renuciation of fruits of action

Should I wish to eat a sweet can I eat just sugar?
There is the milk of knowledge
the ghee of selfless work
That makes a sweet a treat to eat

Ultimately in that union with the Divine
Encompasses all the paths

Recently, I read a diagram in some book to show that Karma, Bhakti and Jnana were three roads that led to the same destination - Moksha, Liberation. I thought, when all these three roads are drawn together as one big road, doesn't it become a superhighway!
