Although there are many types of yoga practices, the Vedic literature explains that no matter which practice you choose, success is only achieved when bhakti is present. There are many yoga systems, and many yogis practicing them. Yoga means the system, and Yogi means the person who practices the system. But the ultimate goal of all yoga is to understand Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Therefore, Krishna consciousness, or bhakti-yoga, is the topmost yoga system.
Krishna consciousness means to practice the topmost type of yoga. This topmost yoga system was described by Krishna in the Bhagavad-Gita to his most intimate friend Arjuna, and Srila Prabhupada expands this idea here for the benefit of society at large.
One may frequently enquire what is bhakti-yoga, and how can you add it to your life or your current yoga practice?
As bhakti is a pivotal element in any yogic or religious practice, it is known as the topmost yoga. In the Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna explains bhakti-yoga to his dear friend Arjuna and here Srila Prabhupada expands these concepts in this introductory text.
