Are the paths mutually exclusive ?

HARIH  OM 
Are  the  three  yogas  mutually  exclusive ?

                 Life  presents  itself  with many  problems. and  it  is  the  business  of  philosophy  to  find  solutions  to  our  problems . . So  philosophy  seeks  the  knowledge  of  the  Truth  ,which  alone  can  give  lasting  solutions  to  our  life's  problems. . The  attainment  of  the  knowledge  of  the  Self  , which  is  our  true  nature  ,becomes  the  basis  for  all  our  endeavors . So  with  this  end  in  view  , Sri  Krishna  presents  different  paths  to  Arjuna  ,so  that  he  attains  his  goal  ,that  of  Self- Realisation.  Sri  Krishna  synthesizes  all  aspects  of  the  spiritual  life  -path  of  work  ,devotion,  meditation  and  gnanam. ,  whether  we we are  asked  to  calm  our  minds  ,  or tosurrender  ourselves  to  God   or  work  without  attachment  ,  or  whether  we  are  asked  to    analyse  our  thoughts  ,  Sri  Krishna  says  that  what  is  important  is  the  elimination  of  the  ego  in  us  , . When  we  shift  our  mind  from  the  lower  self,  ,  from  the  ego  in  us  ,to  the  higher,  we  then  go  beyond  all  dualities.  Whatever  path  one  chooses  , it  first  brings  purity  of  mind  and  citta  ekagrata    and  makes  him  fit  to  walk  the  path  of  knowledge.
            We  shall  see  more  of  this  in  the  next  page.
