YSC2-S3 Avidyasmitaragadvesaabhinivesah klesah #yoga #yogasutrasofpatanjali

Study notes.

Avidya: nescience = lack of knowledge, ignorance.

Asmita: I amness = ego

Raga: attachment

Dvesha: aversion

Abinivesha: fear = fear of death, the will to live. Permanence.

Klesah: troubled, affliction.

These factors which can be compared to the drivers of an earlier generation of phycologists, provide the cognitive and motivational framework for the ordinary individual enmeshed in conditional existence and ignorant of the transcendental Self. ~ Encyclopedia of Yoga and Tantra by G Feuerstein

Study notes:

Bhavana: cultivation, visualisation synonym for dhyana.

Arthah: object or thing = intended object or content of consciousness. Purpose.

Klesa: troubled, affliction.

Tanu: attenuated                    } make something weaker
Karana: cause                         } less effective.

Arthasca? Object?
