Monday word: jnana

jnana [juh-nah-nuh] , noun

Knowledge acquired through meditation and study.

I'm pretty sure my definition is a horrible oversimplification.  I'll point you to Wikipedia and let you take it from there.

Etymology:  Sanskrit

I chose this word because it was the final word spelled by the youngest qualifier for the Scripps National Spelling Bee, five-year-old Edith Fuller.
