danke Sukhdev für die Einladung. Es ist eindeutig dass durch jnana yoga ein Weg zur Moksha geführt ist.

Swamiji said, " God is teaching and God is the student." He laughs. he then said, that the soul has complete knowledge. They asked Sivananda if He could read everyone's mind. He said, " Why would I want to do that ! Most of us are dysfunctional so who wants to see that ! He did say if someone wanted to see others minds and he willed he could see it. Swamiji wanted the whole world to get together and have a place to do Yoga. Neyyar Dam had people from 32 countries. Jnana Yoga means to me we see everyone the same.

Dear Members, dear Sukadev (thanks for your push, sometimes we need one...).
Please everybody, share your thoughts. When I read a sentense like "...the soul has the complete knowledge..." from Gopals comment, I can feel that it´s true. But how to know abaut it. How to become relaxed by this deep truth.

"Sattyam, Jyanam, Anantam Brahma'.....i would like to say too that Brahman is the pinacle of LOVE. Every particle of the manifest or unmanifest creation is only the flow of pure undiluted LOVE...to experience this is to be in the non dual state, to be free of all attachments, to be in bliss!
salutations,
leela mata

Hello everyone! Thank you very much for the invitation Sudakev and Chandra Cohen for the creation of this beautiful Group!

Alone from what has been written this group looks fantastic. I believe everything can be achieved with hard work and discipline, and yoga is defenily something I would do should I had to (change) for some reason.

This particular discipline the name itself Jnana is very appealing to me. Nondual? I get the feeling this could have helped Hamlet... I mean anything that help us to know a little more about our own self (body and soul) I do not understand this negation, why do we seek knowledge outside our borders, when know so little about ourselves?...

I have not been reading much lately and it is a shame nothing about Yoga...

Kind regards everyone, mjf

Hello everybody! I am a newcommer and may have some difficulties with this matter of technology. My appologies on that. Jnana Yoga seems a highly interesting philosophical and vital topic. I expect humbly to contribute according to my possibilities and understanding!

Papa Ram Das the great Bhakti who died in 1963. He chanted Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram. His Father gave Him that Mantra and He became Self-Realized with that Sadhana. He said 2 things.

1. Everything is the Willl of God.

(Paraphrased)
2. You have to use all your own energy, your thoughts, everything you have, all you can do. After you realize that is not enough you will surrender to God. Makes alot of sense. Master Sivananda said," Every religion or philosophy can be summed up in the phrase" Be Good & Do Good." That is my Jnana Yoga ! Cheers !
