Wisdom and Knowledge


Wisdom is gaining knowledge about the absolute. Wisdom (aka jnana in Hinduism) is knowing God and his system. Understanding the crux of Bhagavad Gita, sacred scriptures of Jainism, the Buddhist scriptures, Bible and Quran is Wisdom.

Gaining different types of knowledge (it can be bookish knowledge, vocal knowledge or any other type of knowledge) while in a school or College is termed as knowledge.

All knowledge gained helps us live this physical manifested world in a better way. But gaining wisdom leads us directly towards the kingdom of God. This is the ultimate reality.

Gaining knowledge does not necessarily mean gaining knowledge about the kingdom of God. If we are to fare well in the physical manifested world... we need to gain good knowledge of any profession to succeed.

On the contrary if we desire to gain enlightenment and finally salvation (liberation from the cycle of birth and death forever) we need to indulge ourselves in studying the various scriptures.

Wisdom leads us towards getting liberated from the human form once and for all. Knowledge makes us wise to lead a happy and cheerful life in the physical manifested world.

The onus is on every human being to choose the path... whether we desire to gain ultimate wisdom and leave this mortal world forever by gaining enlightenment and salvation or we desire to take birth again and again on Mother Earth and enjoy life with our love of life.

As willed by God every human being has been given a maximum of 1.1 million manifestations in the form of a human being and that equals approximately 12.1 million earthly years before we finally gain enlightenment and salvation automatically.

If we desire to gain enlightenment and salvation early... we need to digest the pearls of wisdom hidden in the various sacred scriptures of different religions. Mahavira did that and so did Gautama Buddha. Jesus Christ also traveled the path of enlightenment and finally salvation and so did Prophet Mohammed.

Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed... all were men of wisdom. In the initial stages of their life they realized that bookish knowledge alone would not lead them to the ultimate goal of life.

Being a success in life does not necessarily mean one is full of wisdom. A cobbler sitting by the tree toiling hard day and night to earn his living may be much ahead of a King on the path of wisdom.

In the house of God... it is difficult to differentiate and analyze who is a man of wisdom other than the worldly knowledge one possesses. More on jnana here - wisdom jnana
