In the Bhagavad-gītā, three principal subjects have been explained by Lord Śri Kṛṣṇa, namely karma-yoga, jñana-yoga and bhakti-yoga, but one can reach the Vaikuṇṭha planets by the practice of bhakti-yoga only. The other two are incompetent in helping one reach the Vaikuṇṭhalokas, although they can, however, conveniently take one to the effulgent brahmajyoti.
But one can reach the Vaikuṇṭha planets by the practice of bhakti-yoga only.
