Self-knowledge has to be intellectual. Unless you define intellectual
knowledge as something related to objective sciences.

namo nArAyaNAya!

dear list members,

there seems to be some difference of opinion regarding
the nature of self knowledge (Atma j~nAna). i'm of the
opinion that Atma j~nAna is non-intellectual. it's our
svarUpa lakShaNa. apparently, some revered svAmi-s are
of the opinion that self knowledge is intellectual.
let's get things straight. i request the learned
members to share their understanding of this issue -
is self knowledge intellectual?
