Ignorance is a lack of knowledge of the ways of the self and this ignorance cannot be dissipated by superficial activities and reforms; it can be dissipated by one’s constant awareness of the moments and responses of the self in all its relationships.

What we must realize is that we are not only conditioned by the environment but we are the environment –  We are not something apart from it. Our thoughts and responses are conditioned by the values which society, of which we are a part, has imposed upon us.
