Gist of the sloka:
O son of Kuru, those who have experienced this path say the same thing. Those who have not, speak in many ways.
Lord Krishna is instructing Arjuna as to how to choose the right path. Those who have experienced the science of self-realization always talk about the path being same to them. Whereas on the contrary, those who have no knowledge of the right path, keep mentioning multiple of paths and but have not realized themselves.
By knowing the right people who have the right knowledge, one should tread on their path to achieve the same.
It is extremely difficult to understand among the chaos and cacophony of the world to understand which is the right true path. For such path is only one. It is falsehood to say, all paths lead to God realization. It does not.
It is important to understand when multiple realized souls are all mentioning the same path and that path which is in alignment with the Vedas and Lord words – should be the right path. One should be careful and make attempts to understand it completely and proceed on the same side.
