Muni is one who does Manana (meditation of reflection). Yoga is performance
of action without selfish motive as an offering unto the Lord.
Brahman here signifies renunciation or Sannyasa because renunciation consists in the knowledge of the Self. A Muni, the sage of meditation, the Yoga-harmonised, i.e., purified by the performance of action, quickly attains Brahman, the true renunciation which is devotion to the knowledge of the Self. Therefore Karma Yoga is better. It is easy for a beginner. It prepares him for the higher Yoga by purifying his mind.
