yat sankhyaih prapyate sthanam
tad yogair api gamyate
ekam sankhyam ca yogam ca
yah pasyati sa pasyati
"One who knows that the position reached by means of Gyana yoga can also be attained by devotional service[ Karma yoga], and who therefore sees Gyana yoga and devotional service to be on the same level, sees things as they are."
Yah pasyati = he, who sees like this, sa pasyati = he is the one who has seen the reality or truth. Sankhyam = gyana yoga, ca yogam = and Karma yoga, ekam = as one. This person alone has seen the truth. We have to repeat here that by stating one, they are not same in approach, but same in result. We should never think that Gyana yoga takes one to a higher place and Karma yoga takes to a lower place. Yat sthanam = that place[ atman sakshatkaram or atman darshan or experiencing atman], prapyate = attain, sankhyai = by Gyana yoga, tad = the same [place], gamyate = is attained, yogair api = even by Karma yoga. Sankhya does not mean the followers of Sankhya phillosophy but Gyana yoga. Sankhya means buddhi or intellect, and person following Gyana yoga uses his intellect only. Thus the destination is same for both Gyana yoga a nd Karma yoga. Person seeing this unity in result alone is considered as one who sees truth. It is like another example. Thousands of years ago in Dwapara yug, in Gokulam in the North, gopikas performed Katyayani vratham to have the experience of Sri Krishna. Sri Andal , hundreds of years back in down South, Srivilliputhur, imagining Herself to be a gopika performed the same Vratha by singing Thiruppavai. Now, we the commoners, get the same experience by merely chanting Thiruppavai in Margazhi. So, the end experience is same for the gopikas of Dwapara yug, for Sri Andal in Srivilliputhur hundreds of years back and for us in the present times. All of us are same -Sri Krishna devotees.
