~by Reverend Jaganath Carrera
Who am I? This, the most basic of all questions, is one that we never seem to answer satisfactorily. The branch of Yoga that centers on answering this question through study and self-examination is Jnana Yoga, the Yoga of Wisdom. It is a path of exploration and encounter. We explore the nature of the self and life and along the way, encounter the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that cause suffering and those that bring peace and joy. Not a dry intellectual or philosophical pursuit, Jnana Yoga is filled with the joy of discovery. It is the path of Yoga suited for those who have inquisitive natures, who seek to understand the spirit behind the letter of the law, and who wish to experience the truths represented in myth and symbols. Like all branches of Yoga, the ultimate goal of Jnana Yoga is to overcome suffering by direct realization of our True Nature, which is unbounded, unlimited peace and joy.
