- If the pretentious nondevotee sentimentalists, who like to imitate the empiricists, practice genuine jnana-yoga, then they too will gain an accurate perspective on the Absolute Truth
- In other practices - like karma-yoga, jnana-yoga and dhyana-yoga - one may not be confident about his progress, but in bhakti-yoga one can become directly aware of his progress in spiritual life

- Those who are addicted to the pursuit of empiric philosophy are also advised to act in such a way that they will realize bhakti. Karma-yoga is therefore different from ordinary karma, and jnana-yoga is different from ordinary jnana
- Those who are not unalloyed devotees & who depend instead on such methods of spiritual realization as karma, jnana & hatha-yogas must leave the body at a suitable time & thereby be assured whether or not they will return to the world of birth & death
