Jayapataka Swami: You see different yogas are for different realizations. Jnana yoga you can realize Brahman. By ashtanga yoga you realize Paramatma and Brahman. By bhakti yoga you realize Bhagavan, Paramatma and Brahman. So bhakti yoga is the most complete of all the yogas. To practice jnana yoga and achieve liberation, Sankaracarya said you have to be a sannyasi, but to practice bhakti yoga and to achieve realization and perfection, you can be a grihasta or a vairagi. So you can decide which yoga you want to practice. Three choices. Will you all take sannyas and practice jnana yoga? Or stay as you are and practice bhakti yoga. Haribol!
