Jnana Yoga emphasizes the use of the mind and to explore the path of knowledge. It is the process of gaining insight and becoming drawn to pure essence. It aims at attaining liberation through knowledge and forms of expression and not by rituals or ceremonies. The knowledge attained by Jnana yoga is through understanding judgment and experience.
Ones who chooses this path perceives knowledge by reading scriptures and commentaries through conclusions collected millions of years ago. Afterward the individual can study and examine them in the light of his own intelligence, and then come to his own realization. By going through this process of Jnana Yoga individuals can gain insight, liberation and perfect realization of consciousness.
