Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7

The Yoga of Knowledge and Wisdom

You can gain knowledge objectively from teachers and books. But you gain wisdom subjectively through your own reflection. Wisdom is the practical application of the knowledge and the capacity to live the knowledge. The Guru, (spiritual master) can give knowledge and guidance not wisdom. In this chapter Krsna vouches that He will provide knowledge along with wisdom. How is it possible? The implication is, Krsna promises that His exposition of Brahman, the supreme Reality is so thorough, explained from various angles that the seeker is automatically forced to reflect and gain wisdom. Thus, Krsna’s teaching virtually provides wisdom which leads to meditation and spiritual Enlightenment.
