Western philosophy similar to indian gyan yoga or janana marg

Hi,
I recently came across george berkeley. And just started reading his three dialogues.
I felt there is some similarity between what is called gyan yoga or marg in vedanata/hinduism and georege berkeley idealism.

Can anyone suggest some good references for gyan yoga / good philosophy on similar lines of george berkeley. His philosophy is termed as subjective idealism

Thanks

Again, from Wikipedia:
George Berkeley (12 March 1685 – 14 January 1753) — known as Bishop Berkeley (Bishop of Cloyne) — was an Irish philosopher whose primary achievement was the advancement of a theory he called "immaterialism" (later referred to as "subjective idealism" by others). This theory denies the existence of material substance and instead contends that familiar objects like tables and chairs are only ideas in the minds of perceivers and, as a result, cannot exist without being perceived. Berkeley is also known for his critique of abstraction, an important premise in his argument for immaterialism.

He is also well known for his critique of the use of infinitesimals in calculus by Newton and Leibniz. Although infinitesimals let mathematicians do calculations that were correct and almost impossible without them, his comments were well founded and calculus was only put on a solid foundation with the introduction of the theory of limits by Cauchy and Weierstrass.

Note that, while correct, Berkeley's critique was based on religious, not mathematical arguments.

According to Wikipedia, certain members of the Yogācāra school of Indian Buddhism first introduced the idea. As to how subjective idealism relates to any form of yoga is way beyond me.
