magga

in Indian religions, a path toward, or way of reaching, salvation. Hinduism articulates the following meanings: jnana-marga, the way of knowledge (study of philosophical texts and contemplation); karma-marga, the way of action (proper performance of one's religious and ethical duties); and bhakti-marga, the way of devotion and self-surrender to God. In the religious epic the Bhagavadgita, the god Krishna praises all three means but favours bhakti-marga, which was accessible to members of any class or caste
