Behind The Asana: Episode 16 - Jnana & Vijnana

In the Bhagavad Gita, we find the concept of jnana which means wisdom and vijana which is the application of wisdom. In yoga, we understand what we are “supposed” to do - we read the scripture, we know we are supposed to eat well, we know in theory of how we are supposed to act  - this is the jnana. Vijana is when we begin to apply this knowledge into our lives - actually eating well, staying dedicated to our meditation practice. These concepts help us find balance in our lives, and challenge us to keep growing in our practice.
