Wisdom Is Like Outer Space
Jnana is a Sanskrit word that literally means “primordial insight.” That is to say, it is insight, understanding, clarity, oneness. Jnana is a state of discriminating wisdom that always occurs rather than being produced by temporary experience of any kind. It is an inherent state of being. So jnana is like outer space, which is inherently outer space. In spite of stars, moons, galaxies, and planets of all kinds, nevertheless, it is basic space. Outer space is inherently empty and inherently rich at the same time, like jnana, wisdom.
