Jnana Yoga

It helps one to withdraw mind and emotions from perceiving life and work towards transformation and enlightenment. Jnana Yoga is the process of converting intellectual knowledge into practical wisdom. It is a discovery of human dharma in relation to nature and the universe. Jnana Yoga is described by tradition as a means to obtain the highest meditative state and inner knowledge.
Jnana literally means 'knowledge', but in the context of yoga it means the process of meditative awareness which leads to illuminative wisdom. It is not a method by which we try to find rational answers to eternal questions, rather it is a part of meditation leading to self-enquiry and self-realization (Who Am I?). By Kalama Sutra-- “Do not believe, just because wise men say so. Do not believe, just because it has always been that way. Do not believe, just because others may believe so. Examine and Experience yourself.”
Some of the components of Jnana Yoga are :
  • Not believing but realizing and self-remembering
  • Self-awareness leading to self-analysis
  • Experiencing knowledge
  • Realizing the personal nature
  • Developing intuitive wisdom
  • Experiencing inner unity
  • Living in the moment
