Why the knowledge of spiritual philosophy important for aspirants?

  • By Jagadguruttam Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj
  • •  Feb 10, 2022

Many times spiritual aspirants feel that only practice will suffice and they undermine the importance of philosophy or tattvagyan. Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj clarifies why is spiritual knowledge important and what type of knowledge should be gained.

What is the importance of tattva jnana in the process of our sadhana bhakti?

I have explained this many times, but you people fail to revise or contemplate and therefore you tend to forget everything. If you can remember   tattva jnana   (philosophy) at all times, you are unlikely to commit sin. Even if your mind does wander towards the world or bad thoughts, you will immediately remember that Shri Krishna is sitting inside of you, noting your every thought. You even tend to hide things from your Guru and therefore commit sins by maintaining privacy. However, this privacy is ruining you because you fail to believe that God is omnipresent. If you believe it, you will realise God.

Thus, tattva jnana is extremely important. Do not be careless in this regard and do not consider it to be of less importance. There are several topics related to tattva jnana, such as what is raag-dvesh, panchmahabhut, abhinivesh and so on. However, you need only remember three main points: sambandh, abhideya and prayojan. What is our relationship with Shri Krishna? What should we do to establish and complete that relationship and what is the aim behind what we are doing? As your tattva jnana deepens, you will keep moving closer to God.
