Jnana yoga teaches that there are four means to salvation:[citation needed]

  • Viveka - Discrimination: The ability to differentiate between what is real/eternal (Brahman) and what is unreal/temporal (everything else in the universe.)
  • Vairagya - Dispassion: After practice one should be able to "detach" her/himself from everything that is "temporary."
  • Shad-sampat - The 6 Virtues: Tranquility (control of the mind), Dama (control of the senses), Uparati (renunciation of activities that are not duties), Titiksha (endurance), Shraddha (faith), Samadhana (perfect concentration).
  • Mumukshutva - Intense longing for liberation from temporal limitations.

One philosophical view of jnana yoga emphasizes nondualism, in which the individual soul atman is taken to be entirely identical with brahman, or the transcendent, all-pervasive ultimate reality. This view is expressed in the Hindu philosophical school of Advaita Vedanta. According to this point of view, the desire for liberation mentioned above might be described as "wanting to be one with the universe." Nondualism is the belief that dualism or dichotomy are illusory phenomena. ... The Atman or Atma (IAST: Ātmā, sanskrit: आत्म‍ ) is a philosophical term used within Hinduism and Vedanta to identify the soul. ...
