Mike King & Jnani: "The term jnani means seer, or one who has pursued spiritual growth through wisdom or insight. It is used as a noun to describe a type of person, or an individual like Siddhartha Gautama (the Buddha), and is also used as an adjective to indicate the concepts and practices of a particular path. In India the term is often contrasted with the term bhakti, meaning devotee or devotion." Start here:

A major, ongoing study of spirituality among college students: "What is the level and intensity of spiritual experiences among today’s college students? How are spiritual searching and behavior changing on campus? And what does this mean for higher education institutions and students? These important questions are being investigated through a multi-year research project that assesses and tracks the spiritual growth of students during their undergraduate college years."
