Hindus/Will Bhakthi Yoga lead to realization?

Question
"Work is for the purification of the mind, not for the perception of Reality. The realization of Truth is caused by discrimination, not in the least by ten millions of acts"
sr, plese explain me this staement from vivekchudamani.
if this is true , whst is role of bhakti yoga?

Answer
Hi,

That is true. But that is also Bhakthi Yoga.  Praying to God (First Step in Bhakthi Yoga) gives mental maturity. Without mental maturity it is not possible to realize the truth. Knowing God (Second Step in Bhakthi Yoga) leads one to realization.

Thanks for asking this question. If you need more clarifications please do ask.

Best wishes,
