The obscuration of having performed an inexpiable karma (mtshams med kyi las), such as killing one's mother, etc. According to the Foundation Vehicle (theg pa dman pa), these prevent one from seeing the truth in that lifetime. In the Great Vehicle, it is posited that these obscurations can be purified. DKC
