  3. Gnān-yagna [antardrashti] means:
  1. Physical God-related activities, such as having the darshan of God, performing His puja or engaging in discourses, devotional songs, etc.
  2. Behold the form of God within one’s heart, to perform its puja, to bow before it, etc.
  1. The fruit of yog-yagna and gnān-yagna is having a divine vision of Parabrahma within one’s own self, which is Brahma.

  1. Everything that has a relation with God is called nirgun; anything that is not related to God is called sagun.
  2. Attaining the manifest God is itself the highest state of enlightenment.
