How to practice Dhyana Yoga (philosophy, meditation) according to the Bhagavad Gita?

In the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga of Meditation (Dhyana Yoga) is the path that through meditation leads to the direct perception of the inner self (Atman). Once Atman is realized, man attains enlightenment, merges with the Lord and sees Him in all beings and objects.

According to Swami Vivekananda, Dhyana Yoga and detachment are necessary for any of the three main paths of Yoga:

  1. Heart to feel (Bhakti Yoga)
  2. Brain to conceive (Jnana Yoga)
  3. Hands to work (Karma Yoga)

For Sri Swami Sivananda, Raja Yoga is suitable for the mystical man; Swami Vidya Prakashananda stated that to achieve success in Dhyana Yoga, selfless action (Nishkama Karma) must be the means.
