Tell us about your Golu
Vanakkam, and welcome to our Navratri Golu on ~Jnanam - Knowledge. In a world full of chaos, knowledge brings us faith, joy and hope that we will emerge victorious. It delivers us from darkness to light. Knowledge is wealth; it is power. According to Hinduism, Goddess Saraswati and Gods such as Hayagriva, Dakshina murti, Brahma, and Ganesha are hailed as bestowers of knowledge. The primordial sound AUM contains the Knowledge of the universe.
Take the Sanskrit word Jnanam, Jna means awareness and Am - the self. Jnanis such as Hanuman, Lord Mahavira and aacharyas have true awareness of self, advocate jnanayoga and perform Jnanayagna.
According to western thought, there are 14 types of knowledge. They are
Tacit knowledge, Metaknowledge, Situated Knowledge, Dispersed Knowledge, Posteriori Knowledge, descriptive Knowledge, Imperative Knowledge, Known unknowns, Unknown Unknowns, Empirical knowledge, Domain Knowledge, Encoded Knowledge, Priori and Explicit Knowledge.
Knowledge is obtained or passed on From Creator to man, From kathakars to listeners, Master to apprentice, parent to child, and by self-learning through text and through experimentation. Transfer of knowledge between Guru and Sishya is supreme. India has had three paradigm shifts in education – the gurukulum system, establishment of schowols and colleges during colonisation and now when these establishments are closed learning continues in virtual classrooms.
Knowledge thrives with observation and reflection. We invite you to a video call to enjoy the details of our golu with us.
