अविद्यास्मितारागद्वेषाभिनिवेशाः क्लेशाः॥
पतंजलि योग सूत्र। २.३

Sage Patanjali Describes Five types of Klesh:
अविद्या is the main cause of all sufferings or Klesha.

Now what is अविद्या?

Considering inconsistent as consistent, forever changing as शाश्वत is अविद्या.
When you think You are this body, thoughts and mind and take material pleasure as real then this is अविद्या.

Whenever you consider one state, body or fact as absolute truth, You block all possibilities for the change. While in reality change is the only truth.

When you think that ability to see things and ability to perceive things you see are same then this is called अस्मिता. This is caused by अविद्या as you consider your vision to be absolute, while this is not the case.
सुखानुशयी रागः॥७॥

राग is the attachment to any pleasant experience or thought. You don't want to change the state of pleasure because you're fearful of losing this happiness.
दुःखानुशयी द्वेषः॥८॥

When you face some unpleasant experience, you don't want it to repeat. This sense of getting away from suffering is called द्वेष. Both राग and द्वेष are cause of Klesha and are caused due to अविद्या.
स्वरसवाही विदुषोऽपितथारूढोऽभिनिवेशः॥९॥

अभिनिवेश is the fear (of death) which is found in even most highest intellectuals. When we know that death in inevitable still we are fearful of it. This state is called अभिनिवेश.
Apart from above five, There is not s single cause of suffering or Klesha. Now how to get rid of this Klesha.

ते प्रतिप्रसवहेयाः सूक्ष्माः॥१०॥

By Kriya Yog,You minimise the influence of Klesha upon yourself and make them negligible.But they would still exist in some Quantity.
These three Kriya Yog are: Tap, Swadhyaya and Ishwar Pranidhan.


These Kleshas can be erased completely by Dhyan Yog and Samadhi. One must always try to attain Samadhi and be free from all the material sufferings.

Om Namah Shivay 🙏

Daughter of Hiranyakashipu, Sister of Bhakta Prahlad.
Devi Simika was booned by Brahma to control the Shadow, she was the controller of Devi Chaya/shadow the mother of Lord Shanidev & wife of Sun. Image
The Father Sun God is energy source and chaya/mother is like an Umbrella always, we get comfort under the shadow of a tree similarly DEVI chaya is the motherly side of The Sun.

Simhika was so powerful that it's been said in one text, the birth of Hanuman was to kill Simhika. Image
Rahu & Ketu are similalry known as shadow Grahas, however because this material world is so Illusioned & Rahu/ketu controls this. They are the King & Beggar makers graha in astrology. From extreme to the most fallen. Image

Geeta is not just a collection of Shlokas, instead it is a practical book.

Every Shloka of every Adhyay of geeta is complete in itself and helpful for attaining Brahmgyana, but for us to start adhyatma this Shloka is very good.
प्रकृतिं स्वामवष्टभ्य विसृजामि पुनः पुनः।
भूतग्रामामिमं कृत्स्नमवशं प्रकृतेर्वशात ।।8।।

you may find word meaning but geeta is a Gupta Vigyan, Someone who has understood it is Krishna and someone who is understanding it is Arjuna.
Geeta has social message as well as yogic meanings.

I am going to tell you the way to attain knowledge from this shloka practically. it would take 15 minutes.

Sit and close your eyes after taking bath and before having breakfast.

Simple way to calm the mind.

Karma comes to us in various forms, mediums to wipe our previous debt.

What made our Grandparents remain united, within huge joint families, always happy even in any miserable condition? Image
-- One of the reason was. They regurlary paid their debts to the ancestor.

In olden days, even today in villages the sadhus visit house mainly on Purnima, Amavasya, Sankranti or any occasions, when they came to the door step, Image
the members of the house knew that tomorrow is one of these event & so they use to keep the alms ready. Pleasing their ancestors was not the intention but to serve & help the sadhus, however this process pleases the ancestor the most. Image

Shri Krishna told Arjuna :-

विद्याविनयसंपन्ने ब्राह्मणे गवि हस्तिनि। शुनि चैव श्वपाके च पण्डिताः समदर्शिनः।।

Meaning :- Vidvan people see everyone equally no matter what it is Brahmin, Elephant, Dog or Chandal.

This leads to two conclusions ..👇 Image
1. Shree Krishna was anti Brahminist that's why he considered Brahmins, Chandals & Pashus equally. Arjun couldn't understand his anti brahmanic trick due to his ignorance.

Or Image
2. Shree Krishna was right but fool people can't understand this. Shri Krishna compared every jeev according to their qualities. Image

Today I am going to introduce the Ultimate secret truth or hidden Vadic world which still exist and out of time loop.
Around Himalayas there is a place called "Gyanganj" or in Tibetan language, "Sangri la" Image
this is the secret place where Shiva practiced the Sanjivani and other Rishis too that's why China occupied those area for their own research.
It was illusional when Indian Purans and other books reference saying that but in 1872 the dead "Feng ayo" Image
