You can search our archives at http://www.escribe.com/religion/advaita/. It
is a backup and it sometimes misses messages; and recently it was down for a
while. But you can take a shot at it. Main problem with searching is we do
not have a consistent transliteration scheme.

See the following message for the reference:

> In Swami Chinmayananda's translation of 7:2 of the Gita, he writes:
>     According to Adi Shankara, speculative knowledge is jnaana and
> actual
>     experience of the perfection is vijnaana.
> Swamiji does not specify a reference. I would like to know the exact

> this definition of gyaana and vigyaana. BTW, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
> expounded on the same meaning.
