In Hinduism, there is an obvious division between two kinds of knowledge. There is “lower” knowledge, which is knowledge of the everyday things in this world. Such knowledge arises from our senses, empirically. Hinduism also considers knowledge by way of the intellect to be lower. By contrast, there is a higher kind of knowledge, which is metaphysical. At its highest, this is knowledge that apprehends the divine, changeless reality of Brahman, not with the eyes, but with the heart.
