Man is 'blessed' with seven types of ignorance.
Ignorant we are about the origin, purpose and becoming of our existence in this Cosmos.
The Absolute is the source of all being and becoming. and we are ignorant of the Absolute.
Egotistic Ignorance is that we are ignorant of the spaceless timeless and immortal self. We have only a short life.
We are ignorant of our eternal becoming in time; that is the fourth temporal ignorance.
This prevents us from knowing who we really are.
We are also ignorant of the true constitution of our becoming..
Because of greed and fear, we commit many a blunder and this is our Practical Ignorance.
We have to transcend this sevenfold Ignorance and rise to Integral Knowledge, which is needed for Enlightenment.
