Understanding 5 Kleshas (sanskrit for pain) – are they an obstacle or advantage

Nice reading! Isn't there a 'aklesh' (without klesh or painless) state possible? even if kleshas are ingrained, is it possible to manage them? Do you mean exactly that by referring 'kriya yoga'? Looking forward to that...must be by treating your root klesh of avidya and turning it to vidya or awakening and then thinning your trunk of ashmita and pruning branch and leaves as other kleshas. What I liked most is how you described your connection with your father and it must be the pure soul/spirit of him guiding you to these frontiers of knowledge and making you spread the awareness as your own realizations...and as a reader I could connect with it so effortlessly.
