To show them special mercy, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance.
Bhagavad Gita 10.11,
Indulgence in animal killing for the taste of the tongue is the grossest kind of ignorance.
Taking medicine without Doctor's prescription is foolishness. Similarly reading sastra without genuine guru is ignorance.
With the presence of Krishna, who is just like the sun, the darkness of ignorance is at once dissipated.
Bhagavad Gita 10.11
Ignorance is the cause of sinful life, and sinful life is the cause of one’s dragging on in material existence.
Bhagavad Gita 4.31,
When you trust a business friend who is actually your enemy, then he can create tha greatest danger. Ignorance is our greatest enemy.
