Jnana & Bhakta

Together, They Form Devotional Advaita

“World’s within world’s within world’s.” ~ Deeya Siddhi


Bhakti is the Path of Devotion

In this spiritual tradition, the adherent seeks union with the Divine through becoming absorbed in their chosen deity or aspect of God.

It is also known as the path of love, devotion, service and surrender.

Through cultivating Divine love of God, the seeker attains union with the Supreme.

Jnana is the Path of Self Knowledge

In this spiritual tradition of Advaita, the adherent seeks Knowledge and  wisdom, through introspection and contemplation.

This path involves deep exploration of the nature of our being by systematically exploring and setting aside false identities.

Together, they form Devotional Advaita.


“All are but parts of One Stupendous Whole, Whose body Nature is, And God the Soul.”

The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna 

It was about four o’clock in the afternoon. They heard the music from the nahabat in the temple garden …

MASTER (to Keshab and the others): “Do you hear how melodious that music is?

One player is producing only a monotone on his flute, while another is creating waves of melodies in different ragas and raginis. That is my attitude. Why should I produce only a monotone when I have an instrument with seven holes? Why should I say nothing but, ‘I am He, I am He’? I want to play various melodies on my instrument with seven holes. Why should I say only, ‘Brahma! Brahma!’? I want to call on God through all the moods-through santa, dasya, sakhya, vatsalya, and madhur. I want to make merry with God. I want to sport with God.”

Keshab listened to these words with wonder in his eyes and said to the Brahmo devotees,

“I have never before heard such a wonderful and beautiful interpretation of Jnana and Bhakti.”

“What is this, if not Divine Rapture? Gauranga is an Ocean of Bliss. In Ecstasy he laughs, weeps, dances, and sings. Every wooded grove he sees as Vrindavan, and the Ocean as the Jamuna. He places his head on his own Feet, For he is Gaur without, but Sri Krsna within.”

Song from Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna


Confession of the Jnani

by Robert Adams

For the Jnani who has realized the identity of his inner being with the infinite Brahman, there is no rebirth, no migration and no liberation. He is beyond all this. He is firmly established in his own Absolute, Existence-Knowlegde-Bliss true nature.

The further existence of his body and the world appears to the Jnani as an illusion, which he cannot remove, but which no longer deceives him.

After the death of this body, as in life, he remains where and what he eternally is, the first principle of all beings and things: formless, nameless, unsoiled, timeless, dimensionless and utterly free.

Death cannot touch him, cravings cannot torture him, sins do not stain him; he is free from all desire and suffering. He sees the Infinite Self in all, and all in the Infinite Self, which is his Being.

The Jnani confesses his experience thus; I am infinite, imperishable, self-luminous, self-existent. I am without beginning or end. I am birthless, deathless, without change or decay. I permeate and interpenetrate all things.

In the myriad universes of thought and creation,


“World’s within world’s within world’s.”
