Om Namasivaya Nama:
Self-Knowledge gives liberation continued...
The Jeeva-hood can exists only as long as the delusion lasts. Just like the rope is mistaken to be a snake.
Avidhya and its effects are said to be beginningless, but we may think it has beginning, whereas when Vidhya rise the Avidhya (illusion) get destroyed and it will become non existent.
Just like dreams are destroyed on waking up. In the dreams it was there but as soon as the awareness rise in us (waking up) immediately the dreams ceases. It is known as former non-existence (Pragbava according to Nyaya Sastra). In other words, even though Avidya is beginning less it dis-appears when Vidhya arise in us.
Although it is beginning less "former non-existence" is found to have an end, like wise the Jeeva-hood (Jeevathma, Jeevan etc,,) imagined to be in the Athman through its super imposed attribute of intellect.
The relation between Atman and the intellect is due to the false knowledge (effect of Avidhya).
The super-impositions will cease to function when the real knowledge arise. Realization of the identity of the Soul (jeeva-hood) and Brahman is the right knowledge (Samyak Jnana).
