Sānkhya Yoga : The Yoga of Analytical Knowledge
In chapter-2 is deemed as a summary of the entire Bhagavad-Gita. Here many subjects are explained such as karma yoga, Gnana yoga, Sankhya yoga, Samatva buddhi yoga and the Atma which is the soul. Predominance has been given to the immortal nature of the soul existing within all living entities and it has been described in great detail. Thus this chapter is entitled: The Eternal Reality of the Souls' Immortality. In Chapter-18 eighteen Lord Krishna sums up the conclusion of the previous chapters and describes the attainment of salvation by the paths of karma in chapters one through six and in the Gnana yoga section which is chapters thirteen through eighteen. The Lord explains that while doing so one must offer without reservation everything to God. The knowledge revealed gets progressively more and more confidential than in all the previous chapters. Thus this chapter is entitled: Final Revelations of the Ultimate Truth. Students can reap great benefits if they learn at least chapter-2 and 18 of Gita.
