Hinduism allows people to choose, personalize or even create our own paths for spiritual progress, which will eventually lead to eternal happiness. Bhagwadgita alone summarizes hundreds of paths of spiritual progress active at the time of Mahabharata, so it is impossible to talk about each and every path here. In order to make it easy to understand, we will cover four major spiritual paths, namely, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Dnayn (Gyan/Jnana) Yoga and Dhyan (Raj) Yoga. While ideally, it’s possible to follow only one path, but in practice typically, a person creates his/her own path by picking up things from one or many of these groups.
In addition to this we will also cover, “Pauranik Path”, which is a most common followed path in Hinduism, which acts as a introductory path in the spiritual journey. Following Pauranik path helps a person to come to a state where they are thinking about making spiritual progress, using one or many of the above paths.
