In a world population that is multi-billion strong, it is quite obvious that there shall be people who exhibit varying behavior, belief systems, abilities of perception, likes & dislikes, skills, talents, and shortcomings. One’s manner of thinking, acting, and reacting is not necessarily the same as the other. In simpler terms, the ‘Mool Prakruti’ (fundamental nature) can vary considerably among human beings. For people of varying nature, the approach towards the common goal of Samadhi (Yog, union) will essentially vary too. In the Sutras 35-40 of Samadhipada (the first chapter of the Patanjali Yog Sutras), Maharishi Patanjali lists four more types of Prakruti among people (other than ‘Kriya-Pradhan’ Prakruti), namely, Karm, Bhakti, Gyan and Dhyan Prakruti. In episode 18, Sri Guru describes the defining characteristics of each of the four remaining Prakruti.

We understand why it is important to identify our fundamental nature and to build our approach and efforts on the spiritual path accordingly.
