Episode 41 - The Kleshas, the Ignorati and the Goal of Yoga

We talk about what yoga is actually for, and go over the four not-so-simple steps to liberation set out by Patanjali. The idea of the Kleshas are introduced as well as the yogic concept of Avidya, ignorance. 

During the podcast, we reference the goal of Yoga: Sutra 2.2 states “The goal of Yoga is not to obtain something that is lacking: it is the realization of an already present reality. Yoga practice removes the obstacles that obstruct the experience of samadhi, or the state of complete absorption” (Jaganath Carrera, Inside the Yoga Sutras). 

 This translation is what was used. That link also contains some more information on the Kleshas for your reading pleasure.
