Philosophy has special dignity of giving the knowledge of Creator

Philosophy does not attempt the explanation of unimaginable God

Atma Vijnanam Vs Atmajnanam

 

Atmajnanam means the knowledge of a human being. If you take the word Atman confined to yourself only, you will have to apply the meaning of the word Atmajnanam to the analytical knowledge of the anatomy of yourself only. You cannot take that word in the sense of knowledge of identification of yourself, because you are always aware of yourself. The analytical knowledge of anatomy of the human body or its soul can be better indicated by the word Atma Vijnanam. The prefix ‘vi’ indicates the intensified deep knowledge of anatomy of a human being through sharp analysis. The word knowledge generally means the identification of item only. When somebody is not found, you will ask people “do you have the knowledge of that fellow?”

Scientists have already given the detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the human body. They have also found out that the soul is nothing but nervous energy flowing through nerves up to the brain through neurons that carry the information of the objects from senses to brain. Therefore, Philosophy need not take unnecessary trouble of giving this type of analytical knowledge of anatomy of body and soul, which becomes a repetition only. Such analysis is related to the items of creation and not to the creator. Philosophy has special dignity of giving the knowledge of Creator.
