Avidya

Avidyā is the first of the kleshas, or mental afflictions, found in Pātañjali’s yoga sūtras (P.2.3 & P.2.5) that occur from the ripples of the mind (the citta vrtti – P.1.5).

Often translated as ignorance or nescience, in yoga it has a much deeper meaning directed to one’s perception and conditioning of identity and reality. In fact, without it there would be no need for yoga! Download the handout from Robert Worrall’s Satsang here: Avidya handout
