Translation: By doing sadhna according to the injunctions of the scriptures (SaankhyaeH) by the Tatvgyanis (yat’) which (sthaanm’) place i.e. Satyalok (praapyate) is attained (yogaeH) after taking updesh from Tatvdarshis; by ordinary persons i.e. Karmyogis (api) also (tat’) same (gamyate) place, Satyalok is attained. (ch) and therefore (yaH) one who (saankhyam’) Gyanyog / Yog of knowledge (ch) and (yogam’) Karmyog / yog of action, in form of result (ekam’) one (pashyati) sees (saH) only he, reality (pashyati) sees i.e. he actually knows the path of bhakti. (5)
Gita 5.5: By doing sadhna according to the injunctions of the scriptures the place which is attained by the Tatvgyanis, that same place is also attained by ordinary persons i.e. Karmyogis after taking updesh from Tatvdarshis. Therefore one who sees Gyanyog and Karmyog as one in the form of result, he only sees the reality; which means he actually knows the path of bhakti.
Bhagavad Gita Chapter 5 Verse 5
Important: - The meaning of Gita Chapter 5 Verse 4-5 is that some say that one who has acquired knowledge, only he does not marry and remains a bachelor throughout life and only he can get across, whether he lives at home, or in a monastery. Reason being, that person after acquiring some knowledge, starts properly teaching other inquisitive souls by giving examples. Then the innocent souls think that he has become a highly learned person. He is definitely through. When will our, householder’s, turn come? A few say that one who lives with children, he only attains welfare. Reason being, a household person performs charity-meritorious acts, therefore he is superior. Hence, it is said that those who express both these kinds of views are children; do not consider them to be learned. Only a Complete Saint, who is Tatvdarshi, delivers the true knowledge that both types of above-mentioned devotees, who perform scripture-based sadhna within the bounds of the Guru, have same achievements. A devotee, who will understand this explanation, will not get confused by anyone’s talks. A bhakt who performs sadhna while remaining a bachelor and imparts knowledge to others, then someone praises him that he is very knowledgeable, but familiar with Tatvgyan he knows that the knowledge has been given by Satguru. One will attain salvation not by knowledge but by doing naam jaap and by remaining within bounds of the Guruji. Similarly, one, who is a householder, also knows that although this Bhakt ji knows four mantras and a few sacred speeches, and others are pointlessly praising him, both of these are ignorants. Salvation will only be possible by naam jaap and by remaining within Guru Maryada, otherwise, both will incur sin and will become devoid of bhakti. He who has understood this, whether he is a brahmchaari (practices celibacy) or a householder, they both know the reality. The following mantras are mentioned in relation to that devotee who performs sadhna after understanding that real knowledge.
