Jnana Yoga, Vedanta and Ayurveda
“What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.” – Eckhart Tolle
Jnana Yoga and Vedanta prepare and purify the mind for a deeper understanding of ourselves which involves a knowing beyond the body, mind and intellect. Out of which we birth the capacity to become the awareness, the one who sees the actions and thoughts, as well as all the things that go on around us.
Jnana is the wisdom or knowledge one gains after removing the ignorance that has been accumulated throughout life. It develops the intrinsic human qualities to name a few which are understanding, compassion and acceptance.
In Jnana Yoga and Vedanta, we use the mind and intellect to inquire into our own essential nature and then transcend our mind’s identification with its thoughts and ego.
Ayurveda, a profound Vedic science grants us the privilege to understand the nature of spirit by teaching and practicing ways to see and move beyond the senses and also by using the senses and sense organs in a holistic and healthy way.
Slowly we can all peel away the layers, like an onion, to get to our core essential nature of who we are – Satchitananda – “Sat” “Chit” “Ananda”
