Krishn says in the same way that he has two kinds of devotees. There is first the follower of the Way of Knowledge (gyan margi).Secondly, there is the follower of the Way of Devotion (bhakt imargi). The man of devotion or doer of selfless action finds refuge in God and proceeds on his chosen path with total dependence on his grace. Possessed of confidence in his own strength, on the contrary, the man of discrimination goes along his way after making a proper evaluation of his own ability, as well as of the profit and loss in the enterprise. But the two have a common goal and the same enemies. Not only the man of discrimination, but also the man of devotion has to overcome the same adversaries, namely, anger, desire, and other impieties.Both of them have to renounce desire; and the action, too, that has to be performed under both the disciplines is one and the same.
