RE: Jnana yoga
In this treaty Bhagavad Gitta are also revealed (not only jnana yoga) two very important forms of yoga: bakti yoga and karma yoga. This is because the three forms can be practiced only together and simultaneously. They can not be separated from each other. Who try to separate them for practice is wrong.

RE: Jnana yoga
Perhaps many of those who practice yoga are wondering who can practice jnana yoga ... Their answer them that only those - who received the enlightenment of the Truth can practice jnana yoga... and also bakti and karma yoga.

RE: Jnana yoga
The receiving Truth lighting state is essential on the spiritual path, which we can say that it does not exist without it.

What is the 'Truth Lighting State' and how does one recive it?
If recievng this state is a pre-requisite for practicing Jnana Yoga then what is the point in it? I mean, isnt Jnana Yoga, like all other forms of yoga, meant to bring us to the Truth? So, if one can only practice it after getting the Truth, doesnt that defeat the purpose?

The enlightenment of the Truth is the beginning in this advanced form of yoga - jnana. Jnana means the ultimate discrimination between "what Is and what is not" meaning the discrimination between Truth and illusion. If you really don’t know the Truth how could you do this supreme discrimination? Practicing every moment this supreme discrimination between Truth and illusion every one can reach the ultimate state.

I do not want the discussion on this topic to turn into monologue. I want to be an interactive dialogue.

RE: Jnana yoga
The indication about the Truth is very important for the one who is really interested the Jnana yoga practice. Even if it seems philosophy, this is the fundamental key ... a great help for the one who is able to appreciate.

RE: Jnana yoga
The discenement is one practice of Jnana Yoga but not the only one. And it is not implying already knowing the Ultimate Divine Truth but to apply all the understanding one have at a certain point in order to become true to oneself. Else it is just like saying that Hatha yoga can be practiced by those that are able to make already the most complicated of the postures.
It is a current error regarding the genuine spirit of yoga that is made in the new age movement to forget (or ignore all together) the fact that yoga is a system that implies a gradual evolution, taking the aspirant from where he/she is.
Therefore Jnana yoga use discernement as a tool that gets sharpened by the life challenges and lead to the revelation of the Ultimate Divine Truth in the daily life.

The authentic practice of spiritual discernment can’t do in the absence of Truth’s revelation. If you don’t know the Truth how can you judge all things... "what Is from what is not." The practice of jnana yoga is not a practice of discernment that improves with life experience. It is or ... isn’t. If the Truth it isn’t... there is no discernment. Indeed, yoga system can be approached gradually, but start with hatha yoga, laya yoga and then if you get the illumination ... you can do jnana practice. Jnana yoga can’t be for beginners.
