The Four Causes Of Ignorance

Recommended Posts

In the lam.rim teachings it is said that Shravakas and Pratyekabuddhas have to, among other things, overcome the four causes of ignorance in order to gain full enlightenment. I was wondering which four are they?

 

Thank you.

Which text exactly is this written in? Maybe then it will be easier to find what are these four causes. :)

 

And are you sure it is written full enlightenment? Because it is said that Hinayana practitioners achieve "only" Nirvana, not full Enlightenment.

sorry, I wasn't explicit enough: I meant in comparison to Mahayana Great (or full) enlightenment. It is from Pabonka Rinpoche's ''Liberation in the palm of your hand'', pg. 15/16.
