CHAPTER FOUR
The Yoga of Renunciation of Action
Lord Krishna further explains Karma Yoga, what it is and how it works through the renunciation of action.

CHAPTER FIVE
The Yoga of Renunciation
After giving us a good idea of how to proceed and what can be gained by this practice, Lord Krishna now takes up the subject of renunciation and surprises us with its true meaning.

CHAPTER SIX
The Yoga of Meditation
Now that we have understood the teachings to this point, we will learn about authentic yoga meditation, the proper conditions for its practice, and its outcome.

This chapter reminds us of previous teachings in new words in order to provide us with yet more ways to understand Truth, and how to prove God for ourselves.

The Secret Science of Royal Yoga
In this chapter, Lord Krishna tells Arjuna who and what He really is. As we listen in on their conversation, we discover that this Royal Yoga (Raja Yoga) harbors a secret to reaching this liberated state and attaining Absolute God/Truth. 

CHAPTER TEN
Vibhuti Yoga – Power Yoga
Because Arjuna is taking so much delight in listening to Lord Krishna’s teachings, He is now in a position to deliver teachings that will be of the greatest value to Arjuna (and to us). To present these teachings, he tells Arjuna of his vibhutis, his powers and manifestations.
