Vijnana - an essential subject

From Vanipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

To understand God, our relationship with God, our duty, we need to do it scientifically. Vijñānam may be broken down into 2 parts; viśeṣa-jñānam. Jñānam is ordinary theoretical knowledge, and viśeṣatā adds in the practical element to knowledge. Simply knowing that God exists is just theoretical knowledge, but practising godly activities is known as vijñānam. Just as we apply our materially obtained theoretical knowledge at work, similarly, we must apply knowledge from scriptures to our daily lives, and that practice is known as devotional service.
