This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Jnana and karma

Karma is taken by Mimansa in the special sense of ritual action, but it also has a more general meaning, referring to action plain and simple, and in this sense it is opposed to jnana or ‘knowledge.’ We mention this here only to avoid confusions for the reader who is bound to discover both forms of the word, and because the opposition we have just mentioned, between thought and action, is that which separates the last two darshanas, the Mimansa being concerned with action, and the Vedanta with knowledge.
