Question: I read the article on jñāna on your website and have some questions: What is the difference between self-luminous and self-conscious?Answer: Self-luminous means an object which does not need the help of another luminous object to see it or perceive it. For example, a burning candle is self-luminous because you do not need another burning candle or light source to see it. However a book or table is not self-luminous because you need a light source to see it.
