The sage Yajnavalkya and his wife are the focus of much of the "Brihadaranyaka Upanishad." Yajnavalkya discusses philosophical issues such as consciousness, creation, the Self, and karma in these stories. There are also sections on ethics, psychology, and metaphysics.
Only experiential knowledge of Atman and Brahman (the universal Self) can lead to samadhi, or enlightenment, according to the "Brihadaranyaka." The text outlines specific meditation techniques, rites and rituals, and three virtues that yogis should practise. Generosity, compassion, and self-control are three of these virtues. They are described by the sage Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras as the foundation of the yamas (or ethical rules) in Hinduism and yoga.
