Jnana yoga (“path of knowledge”) is one of three main types of yoga expounded by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. (It is compared and contrasted with Bhakti Yoga and Karma yoga.)

Deeply impressed with the simplicity and elegance of the original concept, with the daring scope of the project, bringing together libraries, publishers and other organisations from around the world, and with the highly successful outcome of the pilot phase that tested the concept.The jury of the IFLA/Brill Award for Open AccessFrom the point of view of a participating university, Knowledge Unlatched offers the prospect of arresting the downward spiral in monograph publishing in the humanities and social sciences, providing Open Access to Humanities monograph titles, and a new model in collaboration between research institutions and publishers.

In Jewish tradition, knowledge (Hebrew: דעת da’ath) is considered one of the most valuable traits a person can acquire. Observant Jews recite three times a day in the Amidah “Favor us with knowledge, understanding and discretion that come from you.
