What are our mental afflictions?

What keeps us in samsara, the cyclic existence? It’s karma and our mental afflictions.

Mental afflictions are also called delusions, or maybe even better understandable disturbing emotions. The definition of this expression is a mental state that makes the mind very unpeaceful.

There are six root afflictions:

  • anger
  • desire
  • ignorance
  • pride
  • afflicted doubt
  • wrong view

Tonight we learn how the arising of these emotions causes us many problems.
