In order to understand how ignorance of the true self, is the source of all the misery seeker should remember the fact that the ignorance is nothing but illusion by influence of ignorance one is prevented from grasping anything beyond the experience of duality. This power of ignorance produces ego the physical identity blindly makes one to accept the experience of duality as reality.

The virtue of ignorance or illusion in its polarized state or experience of duality produces attraction to the pleasure and aversion to pain.

Correct Title, Incorrect Assesment!

The term ignorance means "having not seen to known", thus, the title of this blog is correct.

Ignorance, on the other hand, is caused by one's unwillingness to explore the unknown. With our name, man, meaning "mind able to comprehend all things" engraved in us is the need to explore. When we neglect our very nature our manifestation suffers. When we substitute our exploring nature with man made "toys" we gives our natures something to mentally feast upon, but as soon as the learning is complete not having another mental feasts balloons into pain again.

As soon as one's way of life is grasping the Endarkenment of all things available to man, there is neither pains nor pleasure, only it is.
