If I am eternal and perfect, why am I ignorant? 
Answer: Who is ignorant? The real Self does not complain of ignorance. It is the ego in you that complains. It is that which also asks the questions. The Self does not ask any question. And this ego is neither the body, nor the real Self, but something arising between the two.  In sleep there was no ego, and you had no sense of imperfection or ignorance then.  Thus the ego is itself imperfection and ignorance. If you seek the truth of the ego and thus find the real Self, you will find that there is no ignorance.

Sri Ramana Maharshi
