Sri Yukteswar - Ignorance

"Troubles are born from Avidya, Ignorance.
Ignorance is the perception of the nonexistent,
and the nonperception of the Existent. . .
Through Avidya man believes that this material creation
is the only thing that substantially exists,
there being nothing beyond,
forgetting that this material creation is substantially nothing
and is a mere play of ideas on the Etenal Spirit,
the only Real Substance, beyond the comprehension of the material creation.
This Ignorance is not only a trouble in itself
but is also the source of all the other troubles of man."

~ Swami Sri Yukteswar, "The Holy Science", page 47
