Bhakti or devotion holds a very unique and important place on the path to God. It's very common that all the yoga traditions are described as spokes of a wheel that all lead to the same hub (spiritual enlightenment).

Generally, four yoga traditions are described (with the remainder falling into subgroups of these), and the type of temperament that is attracted to that tradition:

Jnana (or Gyan) Yoga - philosophical and intellectual temperament
Bhakti Yoga - emotional temperment
Raja Yoga - mystical and scientific temperament
Karma Yoga - active temperament

In actual fact, there are many paths of heart and mind purification expressed through many types of physical and mental practices, but there is only one path to God - the path of grace or bhakti. If a path or practice is to have a divine outcome, it must include or culminate in bhakti.

Benefits of Bhakti Yoga
