(Sanskrit, “discriminative awareness,” “consciousness” or “wisdom.” In Tibetan, shes rab) Literally “perfect knowledge.”

  1. In Hinduism: The third of the four states of the consciousness of Atman. In the Mandukya Upanishad, Prajna is described as a state of blissful, cognizant, dreamless sleep.

  2. In Buddhism: This term is defined by its context; it can mean intuitive wisdom, understanding, intelligence, discrimination, or judgment. In Buddhist philosophy, prajna describes the faculty of discriminative awareness that can see the true nature - the emptiness or void - of all things. Prajna is the highest paramita (conscious attitude or virtue).


"In these studies of Kabbalah, we need to be practical; there are authors who write marvels, but when one looks at them, one realizes that they have not lived what they have written; they did not experience it in themselves, and that is why they are mistaken. I understand that one must write what one has directly experienced by oneself. I have proceeded in this way for my part."
