Avidya - 'I have no idea'.
Even devotees of the Lord who humbly worship him as they have been taught by their ancestors and preceptors, will reach God.
This is a gentle rebuke for so many yogi and intellectual giants who sigh with grief that these devotees, 'ignorantly' worshipping God, are 'lost souls' whom it is their duty to 'save'!
Leave them alone.
The Lord whom they worship will look after them.
Moreover, they must awaken themselves, save themselves.
No-one else can do it for them.
They must find and go their own way.
Education is the expression of whatever is best in man, and the spirit of education is the focusing of attention within one's own heart to observe what is thus expressed!
Such observation is itself maturity.
