Here are the 5 types of knowledge that we worship on this day.

Five Types of Knowledge

Mati Jnanavaraniya

Knowledge acquired through the senses and the mind. All souls possess this type of knowledge.

Shruta Jnanavaraniya

Knowledge acquired through scriptures and reading. All souls possess this type of knowledge.

Avadhi Jnanavaraniya

Knowledge acquired through clairvoyance; with this knowledge, the soul can see past what just senses and the mind can see. Heavenly and hellish beings have this knowledge, as do certain, very spiritually advanced humans. Thirthankars have this knowledge since birth.

Manah-paryaya Jnanavaraniya

Knowledge acquired through telepathy. Thirthankars attain this knowledge when they renounce the worldly life. Some very spiritually advanced monks can also obtain this knowledge.

Keval Jnanavaraniya

Infinite knowledge of the past, present, and future. This knowledge encompasses the other four types of knowledge as well. Arihantas, Siddhas, and Kevalis, all of whom have destroyed all their jnanavaraniya karma, possess this knowledge.
