What is ‘Gyana -shakthi’ (Knowledge based on Wisdom) and ‘Kriya shakhthi’ (actions based on Wisdom)

By  Prof. (Acharya). Dr. Guru Balakrishnan. PhD M.L

Gyana (Jnana) -Shakti (Knowledge based Wisdom)  and on ‘Kriya-Shakthi’ (Knowlege based action of Man) (so too of Animals and all amphibians). Every living creature is itself a ‘Creator’himself or herself like very God.


Gynana shakthi is called (Medha = Wisdom based knowledge);

Kriya shakthi is called a ‘ Tapas ‘ based ;

Obviously, ‘Manusha’ = Humans (Men)  includes all Animal world, as Man several times behaves like ‘ignorant person’.


(just illustrative only and you can add many depending on your own life experieces, that can be some of your own ‘Upanishadic thoughts’, so any one can write from his or her real life experiences can objectively write the thoughts, by just being impartial observers, then in Aranya vasam , living in forests as a single person, once one spouse dies or one takes to ‘sanyasa’ (mostly people choose to walk out of his famiy) l(leaving all properties and all that he held close to his chest) and the one chooses  to live all alone without any assistance  – else spouses will be ‘selfish’(indeed true, you see why you people get things for your grand children and their children, you can realise) is the basic concept )

Root cause of all trouble is ‘Desire for wealth or anything in material form. So In Aranya ashram, he just despices all’ material form wealth, is the paradigm propagated by this last ‘dharma’ called ‘Aranyam’.

This material wealth problem has caught in every part of the universes. So Stephen Hawkins recently said in his research reveals some more powerful  beings are likely to reach this earth, as we (men) unnecessarily contacting them, that will be [perhaps the end of this ‘human’s civilization, jst because those beings just could vanquish man- humans just in ‘No time’ frame, it is stated in the latest research…yes, ‘we started internet, that would extend their reach on us – Humans, it is believed – what is once acceptable would soon turn into very bad proposition.

We have an experience in Nuclear power, of what happened in Hiroshima, Nagasaki in Japan in 1946, or in Chernobyl (Ukraine) (Russia) (USSR), in the 1980s (now it is said it would take about 1000 years to rever the position of very Chernobyl as a township as then on;y some people or kiving beings may/ can survive as is presumed now;

In 2004, we experienced ‘Tsunami’ due to underground earthquakes in Aceh (Java)(indonesia). That took a toll about a lac of people in the area covering the Indian ocean, like Sri Lanka,Taiwan, Malasia, some parts of Australia (North zones) , India, and so on…

so also in Bhopal Union Carbide ‘Isocynate’ explosion which just killed about 20,000 persons and a lot many disabled in various ways;

We saw in Fakushima (Japan) in 2011 or 2012, in Dai- chi thermal power plant explosions, due to flooding the reactors just gave in deadly radiation.

Fact is any ‘advancement ‘  materially has a lot of consequences is a great facr, after all any material desire in bound to have its side bad effects too is again and again confirmed by natural events , like Plateu plates in india and other countries relevant to the plateau got affected and seriously suffered, due to Tsunami caused  by earthquake in 2004.

Therefore, how well the Upanishads reveal the facts  is no exaggeration. Nature adjusts to new series of effects naturally besides by ‘Man made ‘ disaters one can visualize.

Again see, how valid is the Upanshad on Janashakti (Wisdom based knowledge). See below somw illustrative examples:

Recently in the State of U P,  at  or near Bhulandshar, some high way rapist  

            cum robbers, attacked a  car and forcibly stopped the car and  robbed and  

            pulled out females from it, and took them to some secluded place and gang  

            Raped the women  – a teacher and her teen aged daughter and left them    

           There and escaped; the attacked  family walked the distance to a near by  

           police station; and lodged their FIR on the irreconcilable event on the high  

           way – obviously due to  non presence  (absence) of High way police in the    

           Zone‘ –  instead of the State taking liability and responsibility and

           accountability to that family as also to India citizens, as also wporld  

           community – its State  Minister one Mr. Azam Khan tries to say ‘ robbing and     

           rape ‘ perpetrated by  the llocal  opposition politicians to ptove the exis ‘so   

           called’ ,   ‘S P (Samaj ( = Society protector) wadi),  party) in power try to bask  

                                     in  its own glory, simply to clean itts very  dirty linen,  used that man in Azam  

                                     Khan to say so, obviously hurting the sentiments of the family which rightly    

                                      asked for the trial in some other state other than  the UP (obviously for want of

                                     ts confidence on the government in power in the U P);


It is indeed on the part of the State or Azam Khab obviously not a  

wisdom based knowledge (Gyana); but some ‘useless Knowledge)  

that resuted, ‘ blasphemous statements by the Stae under non

wisdom based (Kriya shakti) action of the state concerned; while the  

affected family rughtly used its wisdom based knowledge ( Gyana

shakti) to request the court to transfer the case to the state other than

in the UP fearing ‘ justice is not possible’ to be obtained as trial

courts work under tge very obvious ‘failed’ state and such action falls

under ( ‘Kriya shakthy’ – wisdom based action)

One can read here why the rule of law is there saying when

one complainant moves a court not confident to get right justice at the place that person can request the very local trial cpurt or rthe very high court to transfer its case in the interest of ‘Justice’ ( very pribnciple of justice is Justice is done , and the justice seemed to have been done)


Similarly, ‘Uri’ attack, recently, in Kashmir where ‘ Indian soldiers’ in the tent    

            sleeping,  unarmed were mercilessly shot dead by very Pakistan Soldiers –   

            obviously  such kind of action by any military force is not treated as any  

            glorious Military act (  Yuddha -dharma – gyana shakthi followed time   

            immemorial). ( such ideas are based upon Gyana shakti time immemorial)   

            and any such ‘actions following ‘gyana shakthi’  is called right Kriya shakti   


Another example:

I am given to understand in the state of Mharashtra, ‘Marati teachers’ are being removed as ‘Marati medium is not accepted as the pupils do not take to ‘Marati Medium’, just because ‘pupils parents want ‘ English medium schools, tha means government cannot remove ‘Marati medium teachers’ at all as that Marati medium was basically promoted by the very State, and started such teacher education programs, depending  on the program several persons chose to do as local government wanted vernacular schools to be promooted; it was not the folly of the marati medium teachers, ‘they too to Marati medium courses and then got trainedt  as  some chose to become vernacular teachers,

(but for the teachers how will the local governments can run marati (vernacular) medium schools; so it is obvious the government cannot remove marati medium teachers , but obviously  ought to maintain them even pupils strength falls as pupils choose  English Medium  ( That is Gyana shakthi  with right Kriya Shaki  – meaning Wisdom);(In the alternative provide them full pensionary benefits and thus retire them – you cannot discharge them without benefits , so that there will be some credibility of government is possible.) Obviously , the Marati medium teachers can form an association , and move the Bombay High Court under Art 226 r/w 227 r/w Art 14, Art 51A, Art 300A (property) citing the case L A Chandrakumar vs UOI case, to ensure them some livelihood relevant to their qualifications or retire them with ‘notional’ service benefiits counting their ‘future- Notional service’ as teachers , with the last pay drawn basis their pensions need to be calculated, so that they need not be on roads and need not ‘commit suicides’ as they are likely to due non availability of jobs in private sector , if not need be absorbed as ‘junior clerks with their last drawn salaries protected, in regular government offices where ‘marati ‘ as lingua franca is used; or use them as ‘translators’ into Marati from English or viceversa, by duky training them in the ‘in house training schools’ that is called (gyana shakthi);( Affected teachers can take to court for redress, that way the hon  Courts today use Judicial reviews as a Gyana-shakthy.(If needed the relevant groups of teachers can get my free legal advice, if approached) (ANY WAY I am posting here*  a specimen – Writ Draft (you can use to your relative circumstances, on *Face Book on my Time Line (you can open my account –

Same thing happened, in Andhra Pradesh, some decades back at Hyderabad, what then A P Government did.  ‘  A P government (then) retained the ‘Telugu medium teachers’, till their term of service was over, and bestowed on them ‘relevant pensionary benefits’; (Such action by State is to be treated ‘ Governance by a government in place. That is called ‘ Gyana -shakti followed by Kriya -shakthy; – Such ideas were perceived time immemorial).

If Humans behave like Sri Ram or Lord Krishna, or Lord Buddha,  Yudhishtra, Vyasa, Vashista, Valmiki, Lord Jesus Moses, Zoraster, Seer Tiruvalluvar , Avvayyar and the like, any Pope (at Rome), Mohammed, Bhakthi Vedanta of ISCON, Shankara, Ramanuja, Annamacharya, Lata Mangeshkar, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, Albert Einstein, Newton, Mahatama Gandhi, Dr. Nelson  Mandela, and like, many others whom you call them as ‘Evolved Persons, (Gyanis – Wisdom based knowledge evolved)    (Medha(vis))(men of high order wisdom).

When such persons perform their actions called Kriya shakti then it is called Wisdom based actions.

If men like  Ravana, Hiranyaksha, Hiranya Kaspu, Duryodhana, later forms in Hitler, Mussolini, Chengez Khan, Osama bin Laden, all kinds of ‘terrorists’ ;and their kind (called as ‘devils; rapists and murderers as smaller devils types) when they perform , they generally perform , ordinary knowledge based actions. They also have ‘some  unendurable knowledge’ and perform persistently their own actions sans Wisdom.

(These kinds  said in 2nd category would  definitely corner everything for them is the critera.)

The issue of thought is , you like to have everything in exclusion of others – fellow beings, is the paradigm.

Similarly, today’s youth (as ill-educated by selfishness based education) are not inclined to be  duty bound;

unlike what  seer Truvakkuvar said types – ‘sons and the like if do things greatly exemplary’ would be treated as real meaningful progeny to speard their family names.

World has the second quality or type, in the greatest number possible due to wrong set of thoughts generated in the young age (like pasumarathil adittha aani pol = like a nail is driven in a live green tree),;

while the former type (wisdom based children) is in the least number; therefore , creations and destructions speed increases in an accellerated moves, that way they create more  and more ‘pralayas’ ‘destructions, or called (mentally paralysed persons;

like most of the modern politicians who look for their personal benefits forgetting their duty to their voters as also the citizens once elected to office; besides many of public servants do fall in this category, one may clearly decipher, all over the human race  world over.

Very concept of ‘Mausha’ quality (tanmai ) has lost its track.  Manusham means ‘justb human’. Do we find such humans in great number? Obviously NO, just because , our lop educated education is thev cause, education sans morality and ethics is no education in theright sence pf the term.

It is like, ‘you have i your hand a gun,would you test it on other fellow beings?’ Think a little .

Interestingly enough, no natuaral resource depletes, for that is infact ‘inexhaustible’ fact.


See you irrigate same soil over and over again for several years, do you find the land fails  

to  provide you food grains and the like even if you rotate crops;

See, you manufacture with machines whether ‘products’  depletes, every season you  

produce the products, as you did before; your ‘raw materials’ continue to flow again and  

Again, provided you are not greedy man – see you say M&A = mergers and acquisitions  

obviously you want to corner the wealth, wealth is one progresses in an arithmatetical  

sence not geometrically ;

So too in any productive activities;  Can you have 100 children to be your clan; If had  

naturally ‘calamities’ like ‘sharing’ emerges, you saw why Dhuryodana wanted to expand  

his kingdom of Kauravas by planning to annex ‘Indraprastha ‘ of Pandavas, that led to  

Mahabharatha war, then;

Today there are several examples:

Why Pakistan wants Jammu & Kashmir?

Why Pakistan promotes Taliban kind terrorists?

Why Pakistan machinated the Uri killing of soldiers sleeping in the military tent unarmed?

Why Bangladesh formed?

Why North Korea expanding its Nuclear Arsenal?

Why Hitler wanted Germans to be the Police force of the world, what havoc he played on  

Jews, in Gas chambers?

Why then Japan Emperor Hiroshoto joined Hitler and Musolini of Italy?

Why Terrorists attacked in France and killed  people in the public place of ‘Entertainment  

Theatre in 2015?

Examples are plenty just think it would just  multiply.

Can you find any ‘adharsh purush’ easily even in Ashrams?

What Asaram Bapu did?(He is a big fraud) (played fraud on the disciples, misused disciples’ by so called ‘disciplines ‘ Asaram Bapu imposed – obviously he misused his ‘fake  knowledge on scriptures.)

And  like ‘him’,  several ashrams are run, all over in India, (in fact, modern so called ‘seers’   

With the above perception if we look to things in Political scenerio in Indo-Pak relations, Gyana in fact is misused, let us see ?

Indians and Pakistanis governments in the last about 70 years of Independence they both believed in ‘War Machines’ to settle issues.

War is no panacea was appreciated since ‘Kalinga war ‘ of Ashokan Mauriyan age ;  wherein Ashoka as the Mauriyan Emperor realised after visiting the battle field  he found about three lac ( ie. 300,000 soldiers felled by the war).

He started visualizing their families and their turmoil after the war, then he mentally saw a very big kingdom of people that they could form into; besides he again visualized  three lac felled soldiers if alive  what kind of people he could have seen; and he worked mentally on , a kind of society he saw, that way his mental map grew into a very big society… and thus he realized ,’what kind of Sin he committed, before the Lord Conscience he  felt. Then , that mental drive on the plane of mind ‘enlightened’ him, – ‘Worst Sinner, if ever one is , he felt, it is nothing other than ‘ very Kings’.


He really wanted to  cleanse his polluted mind when he ordered his war machinery to attack ‘Kalingadesh’ (modern Odissa) just to expand his state by the idea of  of sinister  idea of ‘Annexation’.

He realized , ‘very idea of  annexation’ itself the first serious Sin.
