The bondage of the individual is due to innate ignorance which is known as anava mala. It is the primary limiting condition which reduces the universal consciousness to an ana or a limited aspect.

It comes about by the limitation of the Iccha Sakti of the Supreme.

It is owing to this that the jiva considers himself a separate entity, cut off from the universal stream of consciousness. It is consciousness of self-limitation.

Coming in association with the categories of the asuddha adhva or the order of the extrinsic manifestation, he becomes further limited by mayiya mala and karma mala. Mayiya mala is the limiting condition brought about by maya. It is bhinnavedya- pratha – that which brings about the consciousness of difference owing to the differing limiting adjuncts of the body etc.

This comes about by the limitation of the jnana sakti of the Supreme.

It is by these malas that the individual is in bondage whirled about from one form of existence to another.
