JNANA YOGA


Jnana Yoga Jnana means wisdom in Sanskrit; Jnana Yoga seeks the perfect spiritual knowledge using the power of the mind as a tool to obtain a clear perception of the nature of Consciousness, the realization of this brings enlightenment. Jnana is not based on any dogma that you have to follow; any person can have different experiences. Jnana Yoga searches the nature of the Self through deep contemplation, meditation and a lot of questions such as “¿Who am I?” the answer is: "I am not the body, but I am the Inner Pilot."

Jnana Yoga gives you discernment and experience, knowledge is spoken in the sense that one would see the essential reality in everything there is in the world, one can see what is permanent and what is impermanent, the self and non-self. Reality is not composed of the satisfactions that one experience and the material things that one can collect, these possessions are just appearances

Jnana Yoga is based on the Hindu philosophy of nondualism and closely related with Advaita Vedanta; a sub-school of Hindu philosophy which believes that everything in the world shares a single soul and try to recognize the difference between reality and illusion. Some of the best-known Hindu teachers of Jnana Yoga are Adi Shankara and Nisargadatta Maharaj. Most Yogis will merge Jnana Yoga with other Yoga styles such as Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Tantra Yoga.
