{2.24} The absence of clarity in distinguishing between what perceives and what is perceived is due to the accumulation of misapprehension.

{2.25}  As misapprehension is reduced there is a corresponding increase in clarity. This is the path to freedom.

Freedom is the absence of the consequences of obstacles and the avoidance of actions that have distracting or disturbing effects.

{2.26} Essentially the means must be directed toward developing clarity so that the distinction between the changing qualities of what is perceived and the unchanging quality of what perceives becomes evident.

This requires costant effort. Once a beggining is made ,the foundation of Yoga is laid.

{2.27} The attainment of clarity is a gradual process.

The first step is to recognize that certain tendencies of our mind are responsible for producing painful effects. If these tendencies are not curtailed, we may reach a point of no return.

{2.28} The practice and inquiry into different components of Yoga gradually reduce the obstacles

such as misapprehension {2.3}. Then the lamp of perception brightens and the distinction between what perceives  and what is perceived becomes more and more evident. Now everything can be understood without error.
