Hinduism and Four path of union with God

Hinduism acknowledges the differences in people's personalities and religious temperments and takes a marvelously and ripely practical attitude to attaining union with the Atman-Brahman (the One True God).

In Hinduism there are 4 paths outlined called paths of yoga (union with God) which are different wanys of imagining, approaching and enacting the divine.

1. Jnana Yoga : The path of transcendent through knowledge.
2. Bhakti Yoga: The path of devotion, usually by the image of a personal God.
3. Raja Yoga: The path of royal (raj) reintegration through psychophysical excercises.
4. Karma Yoga: The path of works and action dedicated selflessly to the Supreme.
