|Jnana means wisdom or discernment.
Jnana yoga is the path of wisdom and jnana meditation is many-faceted.
||The main purpose of jnana meditation
|is to withdraw the mind and emotions
|from perceiving life and oneself
|in a deluded way so that
|one may behold and live in
|attunement with Reality,
One principal way that the "jnani," the yogi of
discernment, meditates is to patiently release or put aside all thoughts and feelings
until the luminous glow of the soul dawns in
the mind and heart and is allowed to do a work of transformation and enlightenment within
the rapt meditator.
One way this is accomplished is through the technique called neti-neti.
