DHARMIC PHILOSOPHIES : THEORIES OF TRUTH
Synthesis 

While these philosophies differ as to details, each represents an important truth or insight also recognized by the others. These can be summarized as follows---

SANKHYA: Its fundamental insight is the discrimination between Spirit and matter, the inner and the outer, consciousness and form. This is the starting point of all spiritual teachings. It also presents an ordering of cosmic principles according to the faculties of our nature and our capacity for experience on different levels. This examination of the process of perception and the nature of consciousness is followed by all systems.


YOGA: Its fundamental insight is the need for practise and its outline of the eightfold or integral Yoga path. All these systems use some form of Yoga and resort to some form of  each of its eight limbs. All have their attitudes and values, using Yoga postures, examine the breath, and teach meditation.
VEDANTA: Its fundamental insight is the sole reality of the Self or the inner consciousness and the unreality of all we think is other than it. It also stresses the truth of the absolute unity of all life. Dualistic Vedanta emphasizes devotion and the need for the worship of the Divine.
