Traditionally, there are three ways to attain moksha: Jnana, Bhakti, and Karma.

Is it true that it will take more time for a person to attain moksha in Jnana marga?

  • This is opinion based. It's like who is supreme Shiva or Vishnu? Mar 8, 2021 at 12:47

1 Answer 1


Karma (i.e. doing actions following Dharma), Bhakti will gradually lead to Jnana and Jnana liberates.

O King of mountains! Meditation with Karma and Jñâna with Bhakti will lead one to Me. Only the work alone will fail to get one to Me. O Himavan! From Dharma arises Bhakti and from Bhakti arises the Highest Jñâna. What are said in the S'ruti and Smriti S'astras the Maharsis take that as the Dharma; and what are written in other S'astras,

The Devi Bhagavata Purana,Book 7, Chapter XXXIX.

So, naturally (and usually) the Jnana stage takes most time and effort to reach.
