Are there different paths or Yogas for different people?

Are there different paths or Yogas for different people?
******************
Question: …Shankara talks in his commentary on the Gita about people who are qualified for action and people who are qualified for knowledge…

MAHARISHI: “That’s a misinterpretation. Because each man is capable of action and knowledge. And action after gaining knowledge. This is a right thing.

Where this interpreters divide: they say that there are paths – path of knowledge and path of action and path of devotion and path of yoga. This is such a stupid interpretation! (laughter) Every man is born to enjoy the glory of all these paths and the goal of all these. There are not separate paths like that. They are the separate segments of one path – one path and then four segments, like that.

And then they justify their vision by saying, that because all men are not the same. Different men are different in their tendencies, in their knowledge, in their level of consciousness, and therefore different paths suit different people. And it sounds logical on the level of ignorance, very logical: Different paths for different people. Who can say “no” to it, such a logical statement. But the whole thing is so wrong. […] They are not the four paths!

Every man must be a yogi, that means must have traversed the path of yoga. Every man must be a gyani, must have traversed the path of gyan, the path of knowledge. Every man must be a bhakta, a devotee, who must have traversed the path of devotion. Every man must be a karmi, a doer and actor. Life can’t be without action anyway. He must be an actor established in that infinite value.

Each man has to be perfect. Not that one man will be a yogi and other will be a karmi and the third will be a devotee and that fourth will be a gyani. No, it is a very great ignorance.”
