An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Root and Branches of the World

I think this should have been without "Awareness". Because we do discriminate as a matter of normal life… but this verse does a good job of laying out the entire path of how the misery of the world is born and created.

When you live without discrimination,
Desire arises.

When desire persists,
Feelings of preference arise,
Of liking and disliking.

They are the root and branches of the world.

-Ashtavakra Gita 16:7
