A practical step-by-step guide to the study and practice of the yoga of knowledge. Useful insights to practice thinking, reflection and meditation, leading to the experience joy, freedom and perfection through time-tested methods first discovered in the Vedas, at least 3,000 years ago. A brilliant commentary on Swami Vivekananda's classic "Jnana Yoga."
In Vivekananda's words: "The object of jñāna yoga is the same as that of other yogas, but the method is different. Jñāna, or knowledge, consists in knowing who we really are: beyond fear, beyond birth, beyond death. Jñāna yogis force their way to the Divine by the power of pure reason. They must be prepared to throw away all old idols, all old beliefs and superstitions, all desire for this world or another, and be determined only to find freedom."
