To move forward/backward through the talk, slide the gray bar that appears once audio is playing.
The Path of Knowledge — Jnana Yoga — is not normally thought of as having a devotional (bhakti) aspect. Many modern teachers of Jnana minimize the importance of Ishwara, the Personal God. Yet, we find that in these same lineages, there is often a great devotion to the Guru.
In this talk we explore how this guru-bhakti is integrated into the Jnana Yoga practices and teachings of Adi Shankaracharya, Swami Vivekananda, Ramana Maharshi, and Swami Chinmoyananda.
