Jnana Yoga

Jnana means "knowledge" or "wisdom". This is the path that leads to union with God through the intellect. Also known as the Path of Wisdom, it uses the discriminative faculties of the mind to distinguish the real from the unreal, and thereby uncovers the true Self. It is considered to be the most difficult of all yogic paths.

Regarding true spiritual knowledge, Babuji clarifies: "Gnana in the real sense refers to the inner condition of the mind which an abhyasi develops during the course of his pursuit, while passing through different spiritual states at different knots or granthis. Gnana is in fact the realization of the conditions prevailing at each knot."

Sahaj Marg adopts a holistic approach to Yoga - Jnana Yoga is one of its components.
