Intuition-veiling Karma

One of the 4 Ghati karma.

intuition through the sense-organ of vision

2

 that which veils acaksudarśana

intuition through the sense-organs other than eyes

3

 that which veils avadhidarśana

intuition of the clairvoyant person

4

 that which veils kevaladarśana

intuition of the omniscient person

5
