An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Jnana is knowledge, which refers to any cognitive event that is correct and true over time. According to Hinduism, it is the knowledge that gives moksha or spiritual liberation. Jnana Yoga is the path of attaining knowledge of the true nature of reality through the practice of meditation, self-inquiry, and contemplation. The fundamental goal of Jnana yoga is to become liberated from the illusionary world of Maya (self-limiting thoughts and perceptions) and to achieve the union of the inner self (Atma) with the oneness of all life (Brahman). The concept of Jnana yoga was first described in the Bhagavad Gita, an ancient Hindu text which focuses on liberation from suffering. Whatever is unreal—that is, impermanent, imperfect, subject to change—is rejected. Whatever is understood to be perfect, eternal, unchanging—is accepted as real in the highest sense. Are we saying that the universe that we apprehend is unreal? Yes and no. In the absolute sense, it is unreal. The universe and our perception of it have only a conditional reality, not an ultimate one. Similarly, whatever we take in through our senses, our minds, our intellects, is inherently restricted by the very nature of our bodies and minds. I will explain more about this in my next blog as this is a big topic.
