Sri Krishna said: O the sinless one, as I said before, in this world the path for attainment of moksha is of two types; by means of knowledge for the sAnkhyas, by means of action for the yOgis.
Among those eligible for moksha, ascetics like Sanaka, etc possess larger measure of wisdom than the measure of duties they perform, and as such they get moksha. Others like Janaka, etc get moksha by the merit of duties they perform, which is proportionally greater than the merit of wisdom they possess.
