Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, information, description or skills, which is acquired through experience or education by perceiving, discovering, or learning, according to Wikipedia. The equivalent Sanskrit word in the Shruti is Jnana. In the Vedic scriptures “Knowledge” is the means by which humans can seek the help of gods to survive in this world or safely cross the turbulent sea of impermanence to reach the world of immortality. Knowledge opens their eyes to the truths of existence and the very truth which is hidden in them. Without knowledge they will be lost in a sea of ignorance and mental darkness. In simple terms, the human beings are epitome of ultimate truth but delves into dualism filled with three gunas, with the goal to experience the Knowledge, Knower and the Known are one and the same. The humans have strong afflatus to seek aeviternal bliss which is why we all experience happiness in life intermittently. We lack austere effort. Let us investigate the Scriptures to understand what the ways and means are to acquire this effable and inevitable knowledge. Scriptures express that there are only four subtle ways the knowledge could be assimilated and they are a) Pratyaksha (Direct perception), b) Anumana (inference), c) Upamana (comparison) and d) Agama (tradition). Truth about who we really are, could be experienced by direct perception. This is an uphill task as we are inundated with enormous amount of doubts and perceptions and in bastille of desires and attachments and only through constant effort to eliminate them, we could unfold and release the innate divinity in us. It is like constantly washing a dish with running water so that all the dirt in the dish can be eliminated. That could be one of the reasons why many who wash dishes or clothes feel meditative in that activity. The next is inference. How do we guess what would be the attributes of innate divinity unless one experiences it or discuss it with someone who had already experienced it? Besides, the innate divinity we search for has no name or form and attributeless. In scientific experiments, physical attributes are assumed and through constant experiments, one derives the answer to the research. Every component that enables the result of the experiment physically exists. Because of this, the most bizarre premises of quantum theory that the observer affects the observed reality, has long fascinated philosophers and physicists alike. What is attributeless can’t be inferred. The next is comparison. Innate divinity is one without a second and what do we compare that with? Names and forms many worships are outside the innate divinity when the human being dwell in dualism assuming his/her own impermanent form. The paths to get innate divinity are many and each person’s experience is very different. Even someone explains what he or she experienced as innate divinity, there are no measures to validate what he or she experienced is the ultimate truth. There could be many Siddhis one could experience when on mission to experience the innate divinity. Final method is traditional way to learn about innate divinity from the scriptures. According to the learned opinion that this knowledge is not derived by human beings but planted as seeds in the minds of Rishis by this divine power. The mind can’t validate the authenticity as it remains within the confine of the Prakriti (primal matter) from which we need to separate in order to realize Purusha (Self or Soul). It is quite striking to know that the very same four ways and means of gaining knowledge are the obstacles in achieving bliss in life. We are blindly assuming our perceptions as real as viewed by our mind. We infer many things out of our life experiences judging the worldly matters. We also compare our perception of who we are with what we perceive others as and make judgment. We also follow traditions including reciting slokas and religious practices without understanding the significance of them. We don’t even comprehend the Agama Sastra of how the Temples are designed to understand the significance of innate divinity. Kaivalya is the isolation of Purusha from Prakriti, and subsequent liberation from rebirth i.e. Moksha and Upanishad explains that it could be achieved within this life (Jivanmukti) and after death (Videhamukti). What has made it possible for us to be separated (to exist independently with ignorance) from who we really are, is the one that is capable of revealing the ultimate truth.
