Although the Long Path is preparatory, for beginners, to the Short Path and should be attempted first, for intermediates it is better to make them twin quests. It might be said that the Long Path belongs to yoga and the Short Path to advaita--that is, to mysticism and to philosophy. Thus, when he is better prepared, the same person can cultivate both paths and there is then no antagonism between them, for they then complement and balance one another.
