Why Do We Suffer?

In today’s episode we will look at the mental afflictions known as kleshas or afflictions. These afflictions permeate our existence and prevent us from making that connection with our higher self. The physical practice of yoga does help us feel better in our bodies and this can indeed help us feel better mentally. But does it completely solve our suffering? We still bump up against ourselves and our habits that prevent us from going further. The mind is continuously under the influence of the kleshas, the 5 afflictions that are at the root of our suffering. Tune into Episode 6 to learn what these kleshas are and how they effect us.
