Jñānakāṇḍa (ज्ञानकाण्ड) is the name of an ancient Vaikhānasa Āgama text attributed to Kaśyapa.—There are nine sages [e.g., Bhṛgu] who expounded the Vaikhānasa canon after direct instruction from the Lord. The Vimānārcanakalpa of Marīci mentions thirteen works attributed to Bhṛgu like Khilatantra, Puratantra, Citrādhikāra, Kriyādhikāra, Arcanādhikāra, and Khilādhikāra. [...] Kaśyapa is credited with three Saṃhitās spanning 64,000 verses, viz., Satyakāṇḍa, Tarkakāṇḍa and Jñānakāṇḍa.
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
