Teachings On The Yoga Of  Knowledge 

Many knowledge teachings exist. Most classically from India is the Vedantic path. This is embodied in the Upanishads (particularly the Kena) and the Bhagavad Gita. The Sankhya and Yoga teachings as in the Yoga Sutras are also primarily versions of the Yoga of knowledge. The Yoga of knowledge is most specifically related in the works of Advaita Vedanta like the ASHTAVAKRA SAMHITA or AVADHUT GITA. On a more scholarly level it is represented by the works of Shankara and his followers and the school of Advaita Vedanta. 

Other great schools of knowledge are Kashmiri Shaivism, south India Shaiva Siddhanta, etc. The Yoga of knowledge is very prominent in the Buddhist tradition, wherein it is usually more emphasized than the other yogas. Such practices as Tibetan Mahamudra and Dzog Chen, Chinese Chan and Japanese Zen, and the southern Vipassana traditions are essentially versions of the Yoga of knowledge passed on from India through Buddhist sources. There are many modern teachers including Ramana Maharashi, Swami Vivekananda and Swami Rama Tirtha for Vedanta. J. Krishnamurti also gives a very pure and modern Yoga of knowledge approach free of all traditional and cultural forms.
