Four Things That Darken the Heart

Obscured viewFour things that darken the heart from T.K.V. Desikachar’s The Heart of Yoga



Avidya: misapprehension, incorrect knowledge, false understanding

Desikachar writes, “These are the four possible ways avidya might be expressed.”

  1. The ego: “I am right,” “I am sad,” “I am a yoga teacher”
  2. The desire to have something whether we need it or not
  3. Refusing things and having feelings of hatred
  4. Fear—afraid of death, we cling to life with all our might
