Jñāna

Published: 24.01.2018

1. Knowledge (cognition of the specific attributes)-The state of consciousness emerging due to Kṣaya (annihilation) or Kṣayopaśama (annihilation-cum-subsidence) of knowledge-veiling Karma, through which the categories of truth like Jīva (soul) etc. are known.

khayovasamiyakhāiena vā bhāvenajivādipada- tthā najjamti iti nānam.

(Nandī 6.11 Vṛ p. 24)

2. Knowledge is essentially a product of sentience, which is the nature of the self (soul).

jñānaṃ cetanā ātmanaḥ svariipaṃ iti.
