Avidya – the root of all afflictions

Yoga teaches us that there are 5 causes of suffering in the world, but that the root cause of all suffering is Avidya – ignorance.  But please take heart.  Ignorance does not mean simply not knowing – it means knowing but having that knowledge obscured, as if by a cloud.  It doesn’t matter how long you have been sitting in the dark.  If you turn the light on, the darkness disappears.  Om Shanti. xxx
