The Long Path of the Yoga discipline is occupied with the cleansing and correction of his sins but the Short Path's affirmation brings their forgiveness. The first way is self-reproachful and sadly repentant. The second is self-relaxing and cheerfully untroubled. The philosophic student must learn to combine these two parts in his mental outlook and to use this double method in his practical approach.
