।।13.25।। कोई पुरुष ध्यान के अभ्यास से आत्मा को आत्मा (हृदय) में आत्मा (शुद्ध बुद्धि) के द्वारा देखते हैं अन्य लोग सांख्य योग के द्वारा तथा कोई साधक कर्मयोग से (आत्मा को देखते हैं )।।
Lord Krishna expounds here that some humans having become perfect in yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness; perceive by the lucidness of their mind the atma or immortal soul within the physical body by means of dhyanena or devotional meditation. Others who are novice in yoga develop their minds by jnana or Vedic knowledge and sankhyena or subtle discrimination between spirit and matter and applying it diligently soon perceive the atma as well. Still others who are unfit for the regiment of jnana yoga and those who are fit but prefer an easier method and those whose duty it is to set an example for the common man; they all follow the path of karma yoga or the path of actions devoted to the Supreme Lord that embody devotion and training their minds to control the senses become established in yoga and eventually perceive the atma also.
