Respected Sir,

You wrote:

About the knowledge - I presume it involves -  (a) I am aswatantra
(b) Lord is swatantra and (c) I am dependent on the Lord - or his
relationship with the Lord. Any thing more involved?
Should I say - aswatatra is his intrinsic nature of the jiiva? - not
the knowledge or avidya per sec since they are not intrinsic to him -
since one goes and the other comes.

The knowledge one gets is as follows:

1. Nature of Brahman- Who is He , What/Where/How is He?
2. Nature of Jiva- Who am I? What is the relationship do I have with Him?
3. Path to attain the Brahman-
4. Impediments to attain Him
5. What is the phalan/fruit of attaining him.

Swami Parasara Bhattar mentions the above 5 in a small poem when he
glorifies Thirvaimozhi.

Mikka irai nilai(Nature of Brahman)
Meiyyam Uyir Nilai(Nature of Jiva)
Thakka Neri(The Path)
Uzvinai/Vazvinai(The Fruit)

Please correct me if anything Wrong.
