--- FROM WIKI
  Classical Advaita Vedanta emphasises the path of Jnana Yoga to attain moksha. It consists of fourfold attitudes,[36] or behavioral qualifications:[37][38]
    Discrimination (Nitynitya vastu viveka, or simply viveka) -
      The ability to correctly discriminate (viveka) between the unchanging, permanent, eternal (nitya) and the changing, transitory, temporary (anitya).
    Dispassion of fruits (Ihmutrrtha phala bhoga virga, or simply viraga) -
      The dispassionate indifference (virga) to the fruits, to enjoyments of objects (artha phala bhoga) or to the other worlds (amutra) after rebirth.
    Six virtues (amdi atka sampatti, or simply satsampat) -
      ama, temperance of mind
      Dama, temperance of sense organs (voluntary self restraints[note 2])
      Uparati, withdrawal of mind from sensory objects [note 3]
      Titika, forbearance
      raddh, faith
      Samdhna, concentration of mind
    Drive, longing (Mumukutva ()) - intense yearning for moksha from the state of ignorance[36]

--- MAIN DESC
Jnana Yoga, the Path of Knowledge ::: The Path of Knowledge aims at the realisation of the unique and supreme Self. It proceeds by the method of intellectual reflection, vicara , to right discrimination, viveka. It observes and distinguishes the different elements of our apparent or phenomenal being and rejecting identification with each of them arrives at their exclusion and separation in one common term as constituents of Prakriti, of phenomenal Nature, creations of Maya, the phenomenal consciousness. So it is able to arrive at its right identification with the pure and unique Self which is not mutable or perishable, not determinable by any phenomenon or combination of phenomena. From this point the path, as ordinarily followed, leads to the rejection of the phenomenal worlds from the consciousness as an illusion and the final immergence without return of the individual soul in the Supreme. But this exclusive consummation is not the sole or inevitable result of the Path of Knowledge. For, followed more largely and with a less individual aim, the method of Knowledge may lead to an active conquest of the cosmic existence for the Divine no less than to a transcendence. The point of this departure is the realisation of the supreme Self not only in one's own being but in all beings and, finally, the realisation of even the phenomenal aspects of the world as a play of the divine consciousness and not something entirely alien to its true nature. And on the basis of this realisation a yet further enlargement is possible, the conversion of all forms of knowledge, however mundane, into activities of the divine consciousness utilisable for the perception of the one and unique Object of knowledge both in itself and through the play of its forms and symbols. Such a method might well lead to the elevation of the whole range of human intellect and perception to the divine level, to its spiritualisation and to the justification of the cosmic travail of knowledge in humanity.

1:Jnana yoga is practical. ~ Frederick Lenz
2:Jnana yoga is the yoga of kindness and compassion - serving the self that is everywhere. ~ Amit Ray
3:One who practices jnana yoga has practiced the other yogas for many, many lifetimes. ~ Frederick Lenz
4:If you practice a little jnana yoga in your daily life, it will help you tremendously. ~ Frederick Lenz
5:Perfect purity is the most essential thing, for only "the pure in heart shall see God". ~ Swami Vivekananda from Jnana Yoga IX
6:To practice jnana yoga, the yoga of knowledge and discrimination, it's necessary to have a highly developed mind. ~ Frederick Lenz
7:Jnana yoga is a very demanding practice. It's necessary for you to become conscious of the fact that you're not human. ~ Frederick Lenz
8:The Upanishads told 5,000 years ago that the realisation of God could never be had through the senses. ~ Swami Vivekananda from Jnana Yoga
9:Of the four major pathways to self-realization, jnana yoga, from the point of view of the beginner, is the most difficult. ~ Frederick Lenz
10:Only by so transcending the world of sense, can he reach his true Self and realise what he really is. ~ Swami Vivekananda from Jnana Yoga VI
11:Until you've reached that point where you've perfected your lower nature and cleansed your emotional being, jnana yoga will have to wait. ~ Frederick Lenz
12:Sometimes, as we practice jnana yoga, we feel that life has no meaning, no purpose. We feel that there is no reason to try, that life is empty. This is another illusion. ~ Frederick Lenz
13:I teach Zen, tantric mysticism, jnana yoga, bhakti yoga, Tibetan mysticism, occultism and psychic development. I also teach poetry and literature, film and many other different things. ~ Frederick Lenz
14:There are different pathways - be it Zen, tantra, karma yoga, or jnana yoga. Different ways have been devised to do the same thing for different types of people according to their temperament. ~ Frederick Lenz
15:The yogi is greater than body-disciplining ascetics, greater even than the followers of the path of wisdom (jnana yoga), or of the path of action (karma yoga); be thou, O disciple Arjuna, a yogi! ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
16:The major idea of jnana yoga is to gain greater knowledge of who you really are. What does that mean? Take the first two steps of jnana yoga—shama and dama. They talk about training the mind to internalize and the sensory organs to ‘centre’ themselves so that they can determine what one truly feels or is experiencing. The next natural step in this process is called uparati, which is the practice of not thinking about the senses and going deeper into the consciousness. This is followed by titiksha, which if you think about it, would follow from not being a slave to your senses; it is the idea that no matter whether faced with happiness or sorrow, adulation or insult, one accepts and embraces it without reaction. The mind is consistently calm as if nothing happened. Then comes shraddha or faith, followed by samadhana or the exercise to constantly focus the mind on divinity and finally mumukshutva, the desire to be free from the ties of the world. ~ Hindol Sengupta
17:There are two Sanskrit words that are used for 'path': marga, which also carries the sense of 'way, method or means' and upaya, that by which one reaches one's aim. In reality, it must be the case that we are already who we really are. Who else could we be? It is the illusory ego that believes that we are in some way limited and that wants to become eternally happy. Whilst this state of affairs continues, the search is doomed to failure. Paths and practices are therefore needed not in order that we may find something new but in order that we may uncover what is already here now.

The reason why different paths are needed is that minds, bodies and egos function differently. All paths aim effectively to remove the obscuring effect of this ego. This can be done through the practices of devotion and surrender to a God, for example, in the case of bhakti yoga. It can also be achieved in simple day to day life of working, at whatever may be our particular job, by doing the work for its own sake and giving up any claim to the results, in the case of karma yoga. And it can be achieved by enquiry and reason, using the mind and intellect to appreciate the truth of the non-existence of the ego, in the case of jnana yoga. ~ Dennis Waite
