Chaturdasya Yoga #70
The Four Yogas — the “new religion” that Swami Vivekananda has recently brought back to our day, time, and age — is an ancient teaching system that was present as far back as the Dvapara Yuga in the time of Sri Ram. Later, Sri Krishna brought it forward in the Bhagavad Gita, enumerating some of its fine teachings in His own day and time. In His rendering, the Yoga of Meditation, only briefly mentioned in the Gita as a practice, is assigned the title of “Buddhi Yoga,” indicating the great necessity of possessing discriminative wisdom in spiritual life. The Holy Mother, Sri Sarada Devi, has emphasized this Yoga in this age, calling it back into vogue as a superlative discipline that both blends well with and empowers the other three Yogas of jnanam, bhakti, and karma.
