We say "Atmnajnana" which literally means 'knowing the Atman'. But is the phrase , 'knowing the Atman' used in the sense of a subject knowing an object ? No. "Atmajnana" means the Self experiencing itself, and that is how 'jnana' or 'knowing' to be understood.

To go in search of money, fame and sensual pleasure, thinking them to be good, is to blacken our minds. What is it that is good for us? That which is good for the world -- and it is but a form of Paramatmam. This truth is known to our inner being; we realise it deep in our mind. That is why we find greater fulfilment in doing good to others, unmindful of all the difficulties, than in finding comforts for ourselves.

If we become aware of the battle going on within us, the battle fought by the senses, all other external quarrels will become distant affairs. Let us try to resolve this inner conflict and try to remain tranquil. In this tranquility all will be banished including place, space, and so on. When we are asleep we are not aware of either knowledge or space, but the jnana (in the state of enlightenment of the inner truth) we will experience knowledge without any consciousness of space.

Nobody wants to be known as a sinner, but all the same we keep transgressing the bounds of morality and disobey the divine law. We wish to enjoy the fruits of virtue without being morally good and without doing anything meritorious.

Arjuna says to Bhagavan Krsna: "No man wants to commit sin. Even so, Krsna, he does evil again and again. What is it that drives him so? ". The lord replies "It is desire. Yes, it is desire, Arjuna

We take an insurance policy so that our relatives will be able to take care of themselves when we are gone. But is it not far more important to ensure that we will be happy in our after life? Dharma is after life insurance. But in this life too it is dharma that gives us peace and happiness.

The jnana-path-finder has offered his Jivatma (individual soul) as a camphor in the Fire of the Absolute.

Jnana path has been recommended only for the top-level aspirants. In order for him not to lose his balance by that very qualification of topness, and for his SAdhanA not to be broken by the weight of such extraneous thoughts, the submissive attitude of bhakti becomes necessary. However much we may woo Brahman with love, unless brahman itself does the ‘revealing’ (known as ‘vivaraNaM’), there is no scope for salvation. It is with this thought that one has to submit humbly before the ideal goal. To obtain this submissive attitude it is only Bhakti that helps.

Infinite Consciousness means a living entity that is not circumscribed by definitions. The taproot for the Jiva-bhava is the concept of I-hood. This feeling has to be dissolved in the Infinite Consciousness. This goal of dissolution is the only thing in the mind of the seeker on the jnana path.
