The word Gnana (sometimes spelled Jnana) means wisdom or knowledge. Gnana Yoga is the path of self-discovery and self-knowledge. Yoga philosophy claims that the highest goal is to know one’s core, the Self, the Witness, the Spirit, Atman. Worldly knowledge is represented with the number zero, while self-knowledge is represented with the number one. Only when worldly knowledge (0) is preceded by self-knowledge (1) does worldly knowledge become valuable (10).
For Logical People
Gnana Yoga is a perfect path for intellectual people swayed toward logic. It’s the philosopher’s yoga. Practitioners of Gnana Yoga use their minds as laboratories. Their main goal is to peer beyond the unreal to discover everlasting truth. They use the words Neti, Neti (not this, not that) to dive deep into the nature of existence.
