ज्ञान, jñāna

"true, transcendental knowledge"

Wisdom as a consequence of Kundalini awakening, realization of Parashiva, Absolute Realness.

Jnana is a superconscious state characteristic of karana-chitta (superconscious mind, mind of light, omniscient mind of soul) and functioning within the ordinary perception of the world, daily life situations.

In Advaita-vedanta, it is the attainment of experience of Atman and Brahman.

In the spiritual system of Shaiva-siddhanta it is the fruit of successive stages of development (charya, kriya and yoga).

It is wrong to understand jnana as book knowledge or simple assimilation of complex philosophical systems.
