    It means "understanding and interpretation of Gita results in the culmination of knowledge of yoga". Yoga is the Supreme path to liberation and living life according to the Gita helps us attain it. – user1195 Dec 6 '15 at 7:38
  • YOG means to join or to make linkup between two things, SAMANVAY means to make blended two thing, i.e. soul & God..!! – user4324 Dec 8 '15 at 7:15

Samanvay can be broken into two words: sam+anvay. Sam means to join together and anvaya means to put things in order. It means to join together in order to methodically engage in common pursuit.

Yoga- according to my understanding it means to do, to join, to go forward and get yourself engaged to GOD. Like attain self knowledge through our Mother Geeta various yogas- gyan, karma and bhakti yoga. synthesis of this can lead you to serenity.

Samanvay also means synthesis, coordination, balance and a logical connection with God. If you logically explain the true meaning of Geeta you will attain self knowledge and self attainment but blindly following Geeta without any logical explanation is same like following our old rituals and customs.

This is just as per my understanding.. hope it makes sense.


co-relation between the action (what u r doing) and thought (thinking at the time of action).

So thinking should be pure/non-attachment/truthful/to save other or all.

If thinking would be wrong then action would come out like that. So all these yog are to make thinking pure/truthfull.


The words Yoga, Anvaya and Samnvaya have a lot of meanings. Although, I will mention the most relevant ones in this context.

Yoga means - union

Anvaya means - to follow, be connected with, conform to

The verb Samanvitah means - to be endowed with

Hence, Geeta anvayah yoga samanvayah means by following, being connected with and conforming to the Gita; one is endowed with the union (with Divinity)
