  • avidya (amnesia) — ignorance has become a theory not reality, the ramification being we feel the same about knowledge — ignorance is ignoring the Absolute on account of being busy with the relative
  • asmita (arrogance) — the nature of the relative is separation and the nature of separation is competition (a-smita) — all of creation is drawn to Oneness (i.e. in sleep, in nature, etc.) for their is cheer (smita)
  • raga (attachment) — ignoring we are already naturally Complete, projecting we need to find Completeness, we attach ourselves to articles-beings-circumstances feeling these will be the source of our Completeness — attachment is ever about getting, Love is ever about giving and to describe attachment as Love is lying
  • dvesha (aversion) — in separation we do not project Completeness on all articles-beings-circumstances for if we did, this would be the experience of Oneness — the facets of creation we do not want-like-respect, shockingly live in our minds in the form of jealousy-resentment-revenge, more than facets of creation we do want-like-respect
  • abhinivesha (anxiety) — attachment causes anxiety and anxiety causes anger — all is always changing, remembering (vidya) which we live independently, purging all poisons
