What is Jnana Yoga? What is it simply?

The path of knowledge. Using the intellect to reach moksha. Realizing that name and form is a product of mind only and "feeling it in ones bones"

Vannakkam Tirisilex: It isn't the normal intellect, its the higher intellect, and the wisdom isn't from books, although books may guide you to that wisdom. The wisdom is from the area of the mind that we each have that contains it.
So it is the wisdom from within found during meditation.

I am reminded of a story of a guru, upon seeing a seeker with potential browsing in a bookstore, throwing a book at him and yelling, "Its not in books, you fool!"

Book knowledge is a grid that one has to break free from. Read a little, not a lot, and this grid remains manageable with will.

To see Prakriti grow in every science art and philosophy every undertaking of man, to see this as a living moving tree.
To see the fruit in the blossom and the future in the fruit.
Above all to know that these pearls so beautifully worn by Shakti are Maya.

In a nutshell! ;)

Om Shakti.
