Short lecture by Sukadev on Jnani as a spiritual name

Jnani is a spiritual name for aspirants of Jnana Yoga, for aspirants of Vedanta. A Jnani is a knower, is a sage. He's the one who knows. What does "white" mean? Jnani is less about knowledge of biology or physics. It is about the highest knowledge, the spiritual knowledge. A jnani is the one who has the highest knowledge. A jnani is the one who knows I am the highest self. I am one with the infinite. I am one with the Eternal. If your name is Jnani, that is to say, strive to attain that knowledge. Strive to really experience the highest knowledge so that you realize it and act out of this knowledge.

Sukadev on Jnani

Transcription of a lecture video (2014) by Sukadev about Jnani

Jnani - a knower, a wise one, someone who has attained jnana, the highest knowledge. A jnani is not someone who knows anything. A Jnani is someone who has attained the highest knowledge, Atman Jnana, the knowledge of the Self, Brahman Jnana, the knowledge of Brahman. A Jnani has attained the highest realization, he is a Jivanmukta, a living liberator. A jnani has experienced the highest wisdom.

In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna gives some characteristics of a jnani. He says that a real Jnani is indifferent in success and failure, he meets friends and opponents and also indifferent people with love, he meets everyone in the same spirit of love. For a jnani, a piece of stone and a piece of gold and a lump of clay or earth are the same thing. A jnani is the same in praise and blame.

These are examples of a jnani, because when you are a jnani and you realize that behind everything is the same divine reality, when you realize that behind everything is Brahman, that deep in your heart there is God and this God is everywhere, that everything is just Brahman is, then what do you need to fear, what should you be angry about, what else do you need? A jnani is content in himself. A jnani is full of joy in himself. A jnani has attained the highest knowledge. Become a Jnani, especially the Atman Jnani, Brahman Jnani, i.e. the Jnani who has attained the highest knowledge. Jnani - a sage, a knower, someone who has gained knowledge.
