Jnana Yoga is the path to wisdom. Jnana is defined as “emptying out” the mind and soul of delusions so that individuals can be attuned to reality,releasing all thoughts and emotions until the individual is transformed and enlightened.
Jnana yoga is one of the four main paths that lead directly to self-realization (philosophy of advaita vedanda). By crushing the obstacles of ignorance, the student of jnana yoga experiences God.
Concepts such as discernment and discrimination are highly regarded in Jnana Yoga, where the student or devotee identifies himself as separate from the components of his environment. “Neti-neti” is also a principle inherent in Jnana Yoga. Literally, it means “not this, not this” and by removing objects around, what’s left is just YOU and only you.
