About this video
In Sanskrit, the word vidya means true knowledge - a deep inner knowing and higher wisdom. The prefix ‘a’ essentially means ‘not’, so Avidya naturally represents the delusion of the mind impacted by our conditioning and life experiences that cloud our understanding of our true essence. This is a beautiful flowy class as we navigate the greatest cause of human suffering.
