on avidya

avidya – literally “knowledge other then right knowledge” – is a false state of understanding.  […] we can see avidya expressed in four different ways:

  1. first, there are false values arising from the constant references to “I” and “me” […]
  2. secondly, is expressed as excessive attachment or desire. […]
  3. unreasonable dislikes […]. usually they result from painful experiences in the past that are connected with particular objects and situations.
  4. fear of what is to come […] Pantajali tells us that fear is perhaps the most difficult of all obstacles to overcome.”
