when obtaining jnana, you have a goal of finding truths in order to expel illusions in our perception and understanding of this "reality".
also helps toward the goal of moksa
differentiates upanisadic samsara from buddhist definition - duhka explains why it is necessary to transcend this world
the labels and classifications of the self build our illusions of separate beings which prevents one from realizing the ultimate truth (that all is one), keeping he/she in samsara
this is the transcendence that ends our suffering in human world (main goal of upan) - occurs when all bad karma removed and on realizes the ultimate truth
defines the human life cycle. this is what we must escape to live happily
used in pursuit of knowledge (to achieve moksa)
this is what determines our placement or transcendence from samsara
however, does characterize the ultimate truth that all is one, or brahman=atman. when one realizes they are part of brahman, they will enter moksa and suffering ends
