mirrorsOver time, the jnana yogi systematically sets aside the mirror that reflects everyday reality onto his or her consciousness. In its place, a jnani focuses on scriptural truths, such as: Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma, meaning All this is verily Brahman (Chandogya Upanisad, 3.14.1), and Tat tvam asi — That thou art. (Chandogya Upanisad, 6.8.7).

That is a demanding transformation. Teachers of the jnana path offer their students this technique — shravana, manana and nididhyasana (listening or reading; contemplation and assimilation; and meditation). In this talk, we explore and discuss how jnanis use this method to achieve Self-realization.
