Krishna and the Samkhya panth:[edit]

I will add the following text into the article:

Lord Shri Krishna also speaks of Kapiladev's teachings as one path of the Sanatan Dharma:

  • "Only the ignorant speak of devotional service [karma-yoga] as being different from the analytical study of the material world [Sankhya]. Those who are actually learned say that he who applies himself well to one of these paths achieves the results of both." (Gita 5.4)[1] —The preceding unsigned comment was added by HinduDefender (talkcontribs) 20:59, 5 February 2007 (UTC).

Hello MA, personally I think the quotation would be more relevant in the Sankhya article as it doesn't discuss Maharshi Kapila specifically? Regards, Gouranga(UK) 11:33, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Kapila's descendants[edit]

" Kapila's descendants can still be found in Punjab in North India, and in the Fenlands, UK."

This is why i love the wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Klasovsky (talkcontribs) 22:49, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
