Many Indian philosophers were seriously interested in some unusual experiencesand treated them as a reliable source of knowledge. Occurrence of the experienc-es was considered to be necessary and sufficient condition of liberation fromreincarnation in some streams of Indian philosophy. That seems to be the out-come of assigning the crucial religious function to meditation. Meditation wasbelieved to disclose objects existing independently of meditative activity and totransform mind in the way soteriologically desired. Few important distinctionsregarding Indian views on gnosis are discussed. Various positions regardingcontent of gnosis, verbalization of gnosis, relation between gnosis and reasoningare distinguished.
